Margaretta D'Arcy of Galway Alliance Against War attended Ennis District Court at 10.30am on Wednesday 10th July, to face the charge that she “did interfere with the proper use of that airport by going on the runway without permission". Below is a statement from Margaretta.
It is the improper use of Shannon Airport; a civilian airport that makes me want to have this conversation with the State. Why is Shannon Airport improper? - It is endangering civilian lives and making us complicit in war crimes. It has turned a civilian airport into a military airport.
