on the Philosophy and Strategy of Non-Violence

' Ash Wednesday is an appropriate time for nonviolent resistance to the war. Ash reminds us of the cost of war and also of our own mortality. Issues the United States as an empire is in complete denial about. Like all the empires that have preceeded them - Roman, Egyptiian, British, they seek to gain dominion over all the world's people and resources. Empires believe they will continue forever at any cost. We refuse to be silenced by the threats of injunctions or the bribes of cash and accomadation. We hope all peoples of all faiths will join together in opposing the genocidal sanctions on Iraq and the escalation of this war." '

' Shannon has become a major pitstop for U.S troop and munition movement into Kuwait and Qatar. The witness once again reveals the twin reality that the weapons are not secure ! / the weapons dont secure us ! Over 90 ploughshares communities over the last 23 years all arriving at the weapon systems they hope to disarm - many located in more intense security envoirnments than the hangar at Shannon. The presence of U.S troops and munitions in Ireland enroute to war is not only unconstitutional but endangers Iraqi, Irish and American lives. '
