[ Presenting plain-text part of multi-format email ] See below links for story about over 500,000 euors of damage to US military plane at Shannon airport, Eire ----- Original Message ----- From: tp2000 To: email@example.com Sent: Wednesday, January 29, 2003 10:47 PM Subject: [Tp2000-l] Fwd: Mary Kelly in Limerick Prison for attacking US MilitaryPlane Peace Activist VS US Military Jet A local peace activist was arrested this morning after attempting to disarm a US military plane parked at Shannon Airport. Mary Kelly entered the airport last night and succeeded in damaging the nose of the plane with a hatchet before she was apprehended. Mary said that she felt compelled to act after the statement last weekend from the Transport Minister that he was allowing the transport of munitions through Shannon and because the Gardai were not doing their job, investigating and preventing illegal military use of Shannon, properly. Her actions, while controversial, have been supported by the Shannon Peace Camp and by Green Party leader Trevor Sargent and again highlight the US military's use of Shannon airport in the buildup to war on Iraq.
