Former Maj. Ken Mayers, USMC, and former Army paratrooper Tarak Kauf, part of a 7-person VFP Delegation to Ireland, were arrested and jailed Sunday for an imaginative protest against “neutral” Ireland’s timidity in allowing the U.S. to ship armed troops off to war through Shannon Airport. Others on the delegation are Enya Anderson, Ellen Davidson, Mike Ferner, Mike Hanes, and Ray. Ed Horgan of Ireland Veterans for Peace coordinated the visit.
Those with interest in the delegation’s experience (for some of us a continuing one) can be briefed in some detail at the following links:
Ray spoke in Belfast on March 19 and speaks in Derry on Thursday evening, the 21st.
