The Workers Solidarity Movement has written to the Mnister for
'Justice', calling for the release of Fintan Lane. Get your
organisation to do likewise. More importantly, come to Shannon on
Saturday 6th and carry on Fintan's work to stop the airport being used
by the war machine. See http://struggle.ws/wsm/shannon.html
Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform, 72-76 St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2
Dear Minister, The Workers Solidarity Movement calls for the immediate release of Dr
Fintan Lane from Limerick prison. This anti-war activist is in jail
because he has refused to pay a fine imposed when he took part in a
mass trespass at Shannon airport on 12 October 2002.

The Irish people have made it very clear in every opinion poll and in
last February's massive anti-war demonstration, that they do not want
Shannon airport to play any part in the war machine. They were ignored.
So, some decided to take action themselves.

Courageous people like Dr Lane acted to disrupt the military use of
Shannon. We agree with his assertion that "innocent people are being
killed in Iraq and Afghanistan by the war machine that is being
facilitated at Shannon airport. What is happening is an outrage, and it
is no exaggeration to say that Fianna Fail and the PDs have blood on
their hands."

We do understand that much of your time is taken up with overseeing the
jailing of bin tax protesters, building workers who oppose the black
economy and anti-war activists. Clearly there is not much time left for
investigating the cases of building firm bosses who illegally refuse to

register their employees for the pension fund, or the landlords who
illegally refuse to register their properties with the local authority.
But if you get a minute or two, maybe you could look favourably at the
call for the release of Dr Lane.

Yours sincerely

James McBarron,
National Secretary
