Harry Browne: Lawful Excuse
Here is a riveting essay Harry Browne wrote and published back in 2006 on peace protestors at Shannon airport and the Irish media’s coverage of the trial of “five people associated with the Catholic Worker movement (who) had been arrested for damaging a US military plane”.
First though, read this news report on Ireland’s disgraceful permitted use of its airspace and airport for what we know now to have included the transit of CIA rendition flights. We know from the recent US Senate report precisely the despicable and sadistic forms of torture that such flights and transfers would have resulted in.
Then read Harry Browne’s essay here about the people who were brave enough to stand up at that time to the transgressions both known at the time and unknown.
