Regular second-Sunday-of-the-month vigil. Takes place at small roundabout just before entrance to airport, from 2 - 3pm on Sunday 13th June.

Are arms being transported through Ireland to Israel for the types of massacre committed on the peaceful aid ship last week?

Shannonwatch and the Ireland Palestine Solidarity Campaign have called on the Minister for Transport to ensure that no arms are being supplied through Shannon or Irish airspace to Israel. They have also called on workers at the airport to support the Palestinian call for boycott, divertment and sanctions against Israel by refusing to service Israeli planes if they are permitted to land at the airport.

Come along to Sunday's vigil to support these calls and to demand an end to the militarisation of Shannon airport.

The vigil will also be a vigil of rememberance for the aid activists murdered by Israeli commandos.
