Uit het bericht van World BEYOND War:
Join World BEYOND War for our 4th annual conference! We'll be marking the 18th year of the endless war on Afghanistan, as well as the 150th birthday of Mohandas Gandhi.
This is the 1 time a year that World BEYOND War's staff, membership, and allies meet up in 1 location. Over the course of 2 days, we'll sharpen our skills for creative activism, nonviolent civil resistance, youth activism, divestment, base closure, and much more. See the full agenda and the list of 2019 speakers.
What: #NoWar2019 Pathways to Peace Conference and Rally

Where: Great National South Court Hotel, Raheen Roundabout, Raheen, Limerick, V94 E77X, Ireland. Google map.
Shannon Airport Address: M3XP+V4 Lismacleane, County Clare, Ireland. Google map.
We're coming from locations far & wide, but we think it's worth it to make the trek to Limerick to expose the U.S military presence there. The United States sends tens of thousands of troops through Shannon Airport on their way to wars, in direct violation of Irish neutrality and international law. At #NoWar2019, meet with Irish & international activists, organizers, and educators to learn about the impact of U.S. militarism in Ireland - and how we can work together to stop the U.S. war machine. That's why we're concluding the conference with a rally and tour at Shannon Airport.
