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