A group of women known as the Raging Grannies will hold a Day of Mourning at Shannon Airport on March 8th, International Women's Day, starting at 11am. In doing so they will draw attention to the fact that the airport has been complicit in deaths all across the Middle East, with US troops passing through practically every day of the week.

Up to one million children have died due to US-led wars in the Middle East since 1991. This includes over 500,000 Iraqi children who died due to US/UN sanctions in the 1990s. US Secretary of State Madeline Albright said their deaths 'were worth it'

In Yemen at least 85,000 children have died as a result of the US supported Saudi /UAE genocide war. US warplanes have been delivering US soldiers and weapons and munitions through Shannon airport in support of this war.

Three million armed US troops have passed through Shannon airport since 2001 in breach of international laws on neutrality.

Multiple war crimes have been perpetrated by some of these US troops in Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria.

The US has been using Shannon airport also to support human rights abuses and war crimes in Palestine and Yemen.

Contact: Ann O Dea 089 4310965, Margaretta D'Arcy 091 565430

Call for Action:

Shame on Shannon - send email to remove US military from Shannon Airport, and to restore Irish neutrality.
