Jailed for Loving Peace

As Valentine’s Day draws near, Galway writer and peace activist Margaretta D’Arcy will be completing her first month in jail.

Margaretta was jailed for loving peace so much that she refused to sign an order to stop protesting at the use of the civilian airport at Shannon for US wars. Margaretta has dedicated her life to the cause of peace and to highlighting that the most devastating impact of war is on women and our children, both directly from the bombs that rain down on us, and by paying with our poverty for the horrendous weapons of massive destruction that surround us all. A vigil will take place this saturday at 1pm at The Spire, O'Connell St., Dublin.
