Palestine Solidarity Campaigners Expected To Appear In Tipperary Court.

Three Palestine solidarity activists, from the Galway Palestine Solidarity Campaign were expected to appear at Nenagh District Court, North Co. Tipperary yesterday evening at 5:00pm, having been charged by Gardaí following a protest at Shannon Airport.

The three activists; two females and one male, all aged in their 30s, engaged in direct action they claimed, to mark ‘Land Day‘, on Saturday morning March 30th, and were arrested by Gardaí, when they attempted to block two US military planes.

All three approached the US military planes, waving a flag of Palestine and displaying a banner that stated: ‘US military out of Shannon’.

They were quickly arrested by Gardaí for public order offences, before being detained at a Garda Station in Co Clare.
