We joined Occupy London for awhile and Gerry gave a little speech of solidarity from U.S. Veterans For Peace. Ciaron O'Reilly, who has been doing direct actions for many years, joined us and helped us stay the night at the London Catholic Worker House. He was involved in the destruction of a Boeing plane that was at Shannon CIVILIAN airport being used to transfer troops to Iraq and Afghanistan against the policy of the Irish government to remain neutral with respect to these wars. Other planes that go through Shannon are doing extraordinary rendition flights to take people to be tortured. The Pitstop Ploughshares five were acquitted because they were doing the action to prevent a greater harm.
