According to Dr Simon Clarke, who passionately defended the lockdown policy, the rise in Strep A infections (which has already killed six children) may be due to a ?lack of mixing in kids?, i.e., the lockdown policy.

Black Hearts for Valentine’s Day at Shannon Airport

category clare | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Sunday February 14, 2010 21:25author by John Lannon - Shannonwatchauthor email shannonwatch at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Valentine’s Day was marked at Shannon Airport by a vigil calling for Love not War. Around 25 people gathered in the sunshine outside the airport entrance, displaying black hearts and calling for an end to the U.S. military use of Shannon. Demonstrators ended the hour long vigil by giving their black heart ‘Valentine Cards’ to the Gardai who stood behind the metal barriers which they had erected to block access to the airport.

Close to 2 million U.S. troops have passed through Shannon Airport since the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. In 2009 alone over 970 U.S. military contracted aircraft transported troops and cargo through the airport. Flight records maintained by Shannonwatch also show that an additional 360 U.S. Air Force and Navy aircraft landed at Shannon in the same period. According to Shannonwatch, these figures show the strategic role that Shannon plays in the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan, done largely without the knowledge or approval of the Irish people.

The Black Hearts vigil at Shannon was a good humoured event, attended by people from many parts of Clare and Limerick as well as Galway. Members of the Peace and Neutrality Alliance from Dublin also took part. Banners were displayed calling for the demilitarization of what is supposed to be a civilian airport, and for an end to all links with CIA rendition flights.

A message of support was also received from World without Wars and without Violence (Ireland). It expressed support for the Black Hearts peace action, and solidarity for all the death and endless and unnecessary suffering of the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, and for the tortured and mistreated victims of Guantanamo Bay.

Vigil attendees were heartened by the number of passing cars that hooted horns and gave thumps-up signs in support of the vigil and the calls for an end to Shannon’s profiteering from war. “Despite attempts by many political representatives in the area to justify the use of the airport by a foreign military power, local people and visitors to the airport are clearly unhappy with the situation” said a spokesperson for Shannonwatch.

The next event scheduled at Shannon to protest against its involvement in war and human rights abuse is a women’s peace camp on March 6th and 7th. This will be followed on Sunday March 14th by the next monthly vigil, which will mark the seventh anniversary of the start of the U.S. led invasion of Iraq on 20th March 2003.

The Guantánamo “Suicides”: A Camp Delta sergeant blows the whistle.

"According to the NCIS (Naval Criminal Investigative Service) documents, each prisoner had fashioned a noose from torn sheets and T-shirts and tied it to the top of his cell’s eight-foot-high steel-mesh wall. Each prisoner was able somehow to bind his own hands, and, in at least one case, his own feet, then stuff more rags deep down into his own throat. We are then asked to believe that each prisoner, even as he was choking on those rags, climbed up on his washbasin, slipped his head through the noose, tightened it, and leapt from the washbasin to hang until he asphyxiated. The NCIS report also proposes that the three prisoners, who were held in non-adjoining cells, carried out each of these actions almost simultaneously." see link http://www.harpers.org/archive/2010/01/hbc-90006368
