Colm Roddy and Dave Donnellan arrested at Shannon airport

Spraying of runway, attempted inspection of plane
Peace activists were arrested after they had sprayed a red cross or red crosses on the runway and arrived at a US jet to examine it for arms.

Word has just come in (from Genny in Wales) that my long time friend and peace activist Colm Roddy along with peace activist Dave Donnellan have been arrested at Shannon airport after a 6 a.m protest this morning.

Apparently, they walked the length of the runway and sprayed red paint in the form of a cross on the runway as they walked. Eventually they reached a US jet and having attempted to search it for arms, were arrested

Afri have issued a statement in which they described the event as faith based. It is a protest against the use of Shannon civilian airport for war uses.
