International Solidarity Campaign

The US Army and Shannon Airport

International Solidarity Campaign

President Obama and US troops in Shannon Airport

Since 2001 the Peace & Neutrality Alliance in Ireland has campaigned against the use of Shannon Airport by US troops during war in accordance with international law as stated in the Hague Convention of 1907.

On the 23rd of May 2011 President Obama visited Ireland to thank the Irish government for the use of the airport despite the fact public opion polls show that 58% of the Irish people do not support its use in the Afghanistan and Iraq wars. PANA used the visit to highlight international support for our campaign. We are continuing to seek international solidarity and therefore are contacting your organisation to support us by adding your signature to this statement and emailing a copy to and Ireland’s national TV station at:

We support the Irish peace movement’s campaign to terminate the use of Shannon Airport by US troops on their way to and from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq:
