Margaretta D'Arcy & Shannon Airport
by Carol Fox in Peace News


The Minister for Defence, Mr. Alan Shatter declared his intention to carry out a review of Irish Defence Policy and asked for submissions. PANA published its submission (see attached) and was asked to discuss it with the Dept. of Defence Review Committee.
Also attached is the Sinn Fein (an affiliate of PANA) Defence Review Submission.

Since Mr. Alan Shatter is on record (see NATO Review interview) as saying that Irish neutrality is irrelevant, despite the fact that the RecC poll commissioned by PANA showed that 78% of the Irish people support neutrality, there can be little doubt that submissions supporting neutrality will be ignored in the White Paper when published in 2014. The tide of history however, is with those of us who support Irish Independence, Democracy and Neutrality. Those who seek to restore imperialism as a permanent ideology, like Mr. Shatter, such as the Prime Minister of GB recently discovered, no longer can do so easily, despite the support of the corporate media. The dustbins of history awaits them.
