Irish Times article supporting Margaretta D'arcy

 Shannon protesters spoke for many of us

Irish Times Jan 27th 2014

Sometimes things just sound wrong. Right now, Margaretta D’Arcy, a 79-year-old woman who is undergoing treatment for cancer, is serving a three-month sentence in Limerick Prison for protesting the US military’s use of Shannon Airport.
A few years ago, I met a former Apache helicopter pilot who had done countless stints in Iraq and Afghanistan. He didn’t know much about Ireland, but had been here more times than he cared to remember.

Article by Global Women’s Strike on Margaretta D’Arcy

People all over the world have protested that 79-year-old cancer patient and peace activist Margaretta D’Arcy has been imprisoned for three months. What they may not know is how broad and varied has been her contribution to the well-being of society globally and all that she has fought for in a life dedicated to principled, courageous and creative work for justice from the bottom up. This is to begin a list to which others may well be in a better position to contribute and I hope they will add to it.

Letter from Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate to the Global Women's Strike in support of Margaretta D'Arcy

 I am sorry I cannot be with you at this important action in support of our dear and courageous Margaretta D’Arcy, but I will be with you all in spirit.

Margaretta is an inspiration to us all and we are deeply grateful to her for her great Witness and reminder to us all of our responsibility to call Governments to uphold human rights and International laws, and the Irish Government to uphold its constitution and protect its neutrality.
