Expose the hypocrisy of the 1916 Commemorations!

On April 16th the Irish state is conducting a military style parade of its forces through Dublin city centre in commemoration of the 1916 insurrection and those who lost their lives in it.
Approximately 2,500 personnel representing all branches of the Defence Forces together
with representatives of ex-service personnel and veterans of UN service will be included
as will a large number of the Garda Síochána,
This celebration of resistance to British Imperialism is being funded by the Irish taxpayers, t
he same people who are paying for the murderous forces of the U.S military to use Baldonnel
and Shannon airports for the purposes of war.and imperialist domination in the Middle East.

Baldonnel,straight ahead
Baldonnel,straight ahead

The hypocrisy is glaring.As death and carnage spread through Iraq and as the death toll rises incessantly ,the Irish state stands guilty of complicity in this abhorrent slaughter through our facilitation of the U.S war machine.

There have been international reports which state that prisoners have been illegally transported to the Guantanamo Bay base and other black spots across the world for interrogation and torture at the hands of U.S democracy.. Many may have passed through Shannon or Baldonnell, making Ireland a party to a breach of international law.
We cannot stand idly by as this unfolds daily right in front of us, action must be continued and the cowardly Irish government must be shown up to have the blood of thousands of innocents on their hands.

There will be a Anti-War Critical Mass from Heuston Station
at 1pm,bicycle a must!
Grassroots Dissent is calling on all anti-war groups and individuals to join in the protest at Baldonnel.
We must fight this injustice and for peace together.
The State’s hypocrisy while they laud the anti-impoerialism of the past must be highlighted and our complicity in the war must be stopped!.

There will be a Anti-War Critical Mass from Heuston Station
at 1pm,bicycle a must!

There are four options at this point available to those wishing to get to Baldonnel on the day-

1) There will be an Anti-War Critical Mass leaving Heuston Station at 1 o’clock.
2) There is public transport available to within reasonable walking distance of the Aerodrome-the 68/69 bus routes leaving Aston Quay at 1.25.
3) There will be a Luas convoy getting off at the Red Cow roundabout
4) There may be a car convoy meeting to transport those who are unable to avail of the other options.

There will be an open meeting this Saturday the 8th at 3pm to plan and discuss further the details of the action-all are welcome-
Venue-Front Gates of Trinity,(room available inside-)
The finer details of the action are to be discussed at the meeting and will be posted here next week.

your parade is proving nothing if you say your anti-imperilism then you should be celebrating the 90th aniversary of the actions of oghlaigh na heireann not highlighting something as insignificant as planes stopping to ru-fuel. you should show your sence of duty to your country and support the irish troops who only attempt to defend their nation and help in peace keeping missions through out the world

Since when is Iraq a "peace keeping mission", and since when does allowing US planes to stop over in Shanon constitute helping Irish soldiers to defend their country ?
