Yesterday an Irish activist (Mary Kelly) entered Shannon airport and attacked
a US navy war plane with a hachet (small axe).  She did over 500,000 worth of
damage and this plane is now grounder, awaiting repairs. This is the sixth
succesful Direct Action at Shannon in the last year and the second in which a
US military plane was damaged. The largest of these actions back in October
saw 150 people take part in breaking down part of the perimeter fence and then
entering the airfield itself. A detailed report on this with photos is at
http://struggle.ws/wsm/news/2002/shannonOCT.html and more reports on protests
in general at Shannon are at http://struggle.ws/wsm/shannon.html

Mary is now in Limerick prison as she refused to accept repressive bail
conditions that would have banned her from County Clare.  To follow
developments in her case and the anti war movements in Ireland see
www.indymedia.ie

These direct actions in Ireland are part of a growing international anti-war
movement that says protesting the war is not enough, we must take action
against the war machine. Recent actions have seen blockades of military bases
in Britain while in San Francisco up to 2,000 people attacked the INS office.
More reports on these and background information on the war online at
http://struggle.ws/stopthewar.html  If you know of any direct actions not
listed there email me with a URL of a report of them.
