US Military: End use of Shannon {RSF Statement}


Preas Ráitheas / Press Release

“Sinn Féin Poblachtach utterly condemn the landing and fueling of US aircraft at Shannon and other Irish airports. This week we have heard from Shannon watch that five craft landed at Shannon.  Two US Navy C40 troop carriers, a Hercules C130 and two Marine corps KC 130’s.

All these aircrafts are either on their way too of from bombing men, women and children. Troops, munitions and equipment have passed through Irish airports for many years despite the so-called neutrality position of the 26 county state.

We the people of Ireland have become an important linchpin in the US led war being perpetuated on the Arab world.  It is time we stood up against this aggression and the connivance of the 26 County administration in these unjust wars designed to undermine non-compliant Governments with US foreign policy.”
