13 peace activists attended the monthly Shannon peace vigil on 9 Aug 09. As usual we were outnumbered by uniformed and plainclothed Gardai. Peace activists travelled from Dublin, Cork, Mullingar, Galway, Ennis and Limerick to attend. The reaction of passing motorists is increasingly encouraging and positive.
Since August 9 is the aniversary of the distruction of Hiroshima in 1945 by an Atomic bomb, a war crime committed by the US airforce, on the orders of the then US President, it was considered appropriate to commemorate this event. Within the airport about 200 armed US troops were passing through the airport on an Omni Air chartered troop-transporter. read full story / add a comment

On Morning Ireland this morning (16 July 2009) Cathal MacCoille asks Tom Geraghty of the Public Service Executive Union about some CSO statistics. Geraghty explains that they are bogus for the purpose MacCoile is using them - trying to argue that public sector workers get paid more than private sector workers. Geraghty also explains that the CSO recognise that fact. But MacCoille keeps asking the same question, oblivious of the fact that Geraghty keeps answering it.

For once a dense RTE bore gets his answer - listen and laugh (there are few of them about these days). read full story / add a comment
