Dead Slow March for Peace Mourning the Death of Irish Neutrality and All Deaths in Iraq

30th March 2003

Next Sunday, 30th March will see a Dead Slow March for Peace taking place at Shannon Warport. People will gather at Shannon from all over the country to express opposition to the war in Iraq and to Irish participation in it, through the use of facilities at Shannon by US military on their way to the Gulf.

This will be a solemn occasion, an act of mourning for all those who have been or will be killed in this war and for the final death of Irish Neutrality. Organisers are asking participants to wear black clothes, white face paint and to bring red paint or fake blood to put on their hands.

This protest has been called by the Grassroots Network Against War and is being supported by the Cork Peace Alliance.
