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.
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.
