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.
