Human Rights, Protests

This week Afri with help for other creative individuals organized a special event.  It began

Monthly Vigil at Shannon

Monthly Vigil at Shannon

with a “Shamrock” event with the emphasis on SHAM. A few of us cycled from Bunratty to Shannon and met with others there as part of an “impromptu” peace vigil to highlight the cycle of violence in the Middle East being assisted by US military use of Shannon airport and a symbolic Cycle of Peace at Shannon. It was also intended as a diversion for the Gardaí and airport security at Shannon so that another creative groups could stage a mock bringing of a Guantanamo prisoner through Shannon airport, with a bowl of Shamrock – the equivalent of 30 pieces of silver.

 The diversionary peace vigil at our usual roundabout location worked well and received undue attention from Gardaí and airport security as our “infiltrators” were preparing their surprise up at the terminal or Terminator building.

C40 number 90540 at Shannon

The first photo is a C40 US military aircraft in full US Government colours. This sort of plane may be used as an executive for transporting the likes of John Kerry around the world as he and his government work to destabilise yet another country full of decent people. The crow seen flying over the C40 seems to be attempting to dive bomb this plane. Lets hope he/she had some success.

The second warplane is a Hercules C130 number CW5159, possibly on a “humanitarian mission” to kill some foreigners who are perceived to be acting against US national interests.
