Anti-war activists have threatened to protest if Air Force One lands at Shannon Airport this coming May when U.S. President Barack Obama will arrive in Ireland.

Anti-war campaigner, Dr Edward Horgan has warned that demonstrations were already being planned in the event that the U.S. President lands at Shannon, in order to protest against the use of the airport as a stop over by the U.S. military and the CIA.

Speaking about the U.S. militaries use of Shannon Airport before, Dr Horgan said: “What is happening here at Shannon airport is that we are complicit in the killing of innocent people in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and elsewhere.”

“We are not a group of trouble-makers or law-breakers. We are people that want Irish and international law enforced,” he told the Irish Times.
