World Beyond War and Shannonwatch are organizing a Peace Conference in Cloughjordan Eco-village, Tipperary, on Saturday, September 8th. The event is titled "Global Governance: The Force of Law, or the Law of Force," and it will feature a range of expert speakers who will address vital topics such as: Practical Protests and Legal Actions; The Role of Women in Peace; Transforming the Role of the Military from War to Peace; The Dangers of an EU Super-State, and need to dismantle the new Iron Curtain; Ireland's Role in International Affairs; Ireland, Europe and Neutrality; Shannon and the Law; and finally Law vs War.

The day aims to bring together people who are concerned about how the world is organised, about how conflicts and differences are dealt with , and about the sovereignty of our nation.

It will start by looking at the role civil society has to play in the shaping of our world. This session will be followed by looking at current domestic and international practices, from both the potential and actual point of view. Finally we will look at using the rule of law against war. All three presentation sessions will have a Q&A session. These informative talks, will then lead into engaging, and practical workshops in the afternoon.

Due to speak at the event are: David Swanson and Barry Sweeney (both World Beyond War), John Lannon and Ed Horgan (both Shannonwatch), Margaretta D'Arcy, Terry Crawford Browne, Riitta Wahlström, Patricia McKenna BL (former MEP), Roger Cole (PANA), Karen Devine (DCU).
