Bush's photo op at Shannon Troops transport Hub

The idea is to make the 'Black Shamrock' the symbol of Irish Resistance to the Iraq War and our complicity in it (Shannon in Ireland and Frankfurt in Germany are the major hubs for the US conquest of the Middle East) just in time for Paddy's Day. There's some more info below but that's about it. it's just an idea at the end of the Bush's trip back to Fauxlandia Feel free to design your own and distribute them as they may. If you find yourself outside of Ireland, in New York, or boston, or Philly or Dayton or Dallas maybe you could approach the owner of your nearest Irish bars/pubs or see what the plans are for any St. Patrick Day's celebrations and get the idea out there, international solidarity and awareness raising to the campaign in Ireland would be great.

No to Bush War, either in Eire or the colonies!

WEAR A BLACK SHAMROCK!

SIOCHAN! SALAAM! SHALOM!

1. Marines are following orders.
And most of their thoughts are betrayed by their training and discipline.

4. If lost, please return to...
In NYC, I've seen 2 or 3 adults take groups of 30 young school children on trips to places like Rockefeller Center. The children wear brightly colored vests with the name, address, and telephone number of the school. It's a good idea.

Probably the same concept at work here.

.... the troops hate him. They know that they were lied to and Iraq is a mistake.



Now that is what a leader looked like. Ike would never have put up w/ a
fool like W .... not for one minute.
