Well known peace activist and feminist Margaretta D'arcy has issued a call to celebrate Women's Little Christmas/Nollaig na mBan in a meaningful way by coming along to the Shannon Airport Women's Peace Camp on Jan 6th.

The initiative is supported by the Clare Women's Network in a quest for peace. In MArgaretta's words:

"It is our hope that all women that are opposed to the atrocity of war and violence in its many guises will join us either for the full 24 hours or drop in throughout this time and celebrate Women's Christmas/Nollaig na mBan and invite all your friends. Bring your pots and pans, your drums and lets make some noise, whilst listening to some very talented artists."

The organisers wish to make this a lively and multi cultural event representing not only a full and absolute rejection of having blood on our hands but in support of the many people who find themselves not only displaced in Ireland but also unwelcome and in receipt of deportation orders instead of refuge.
