We're calling on everyone who opposes the US military use of Shannon to tweet about it. Join us from 8pm to 9pm this Sunday (Oct 11th) to send messages to the government and to the Department of Foreign Affairs. You can be sure both will notice - and probably even count - the tweets!

Here are some suggested tweets. Use these or your own to demand #USMilitaryOutOfShannon.

37 million people displaced with full complicity of Irish state through use of Shannon Airport by US Military to commit war crimes. #USMilitaryOutofShannon

Irish State is complicit in making 37 million people refugees through use of Shannon Airport by US Military but will only bring a tiny number to safety here from #Moria It's our responsibility,  we destroyed their lives.  #USMilitaryOutOfShannon #RefugeesWelcome #400Welcomes

The United States have been engaged in a series of ongoing wars of aggression in countries where they have no right to be such as Iraq, Syria and Afghanistan. And they're using Shannon Airport to wage those wars. @simoncoveney #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

For as long as the US military continues to use Shannon Airport to help them inflict suffering and destruction around the world, we will oppose it. The Gardai should do their job and search the military planes @dfatirl  #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

It is long past time that @MichealMartinTD end Ireland's complicity with US war crimes through the use of Shannon Airport.  We must not continue to facilitate mass murder and destruction in so many countries #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

Through the use of Shannon Airport by the US army,  Ireland is a US military outpost. This is totally contrary to our policy of neutrality, as well as international law.  How shameful @simoncoveney #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

Around 60,000 armed US troops a year transit through Shannon Airport. This is dangerous,  immoral and breaches our neutrality. Time to stop this @MichealMartinTD @simoncoveney @dfatirl  #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

#Trump's 2020 war budget is $738 billion. This could provide proper health care for every American or dramatically reduce world poverty, or tackle the climate crisis destroying our planet. Let's not be part of the destruction any more. #USMilitaryOutOfShannon @MichealMartinTD

Every month we protest US military use of @shannonairport We remember the millions murdered by US imperialist wars with the complicity of this state @Michealmartintd

Military planes, including troop carriers, go through daily, despite our supposed neutrality #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

Let's make 2020 the year we end the US military use of Shannon Airport. That way we're doing our bit to save the planet, protect human rights and human life, & make the world a safer place. #USMilitaryOutOfShannon @ShannonAirport @Michealmartintd

The majority of Irish people oppose the US using Shannon Airport for military purposes so why does the government act against our wishes?  Time to stop facilitating mass murder @Michealmartintd @shannonairport #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

.@greenparty_ie @EamonRyan used to oppose the use of Shannon Airport by US Military to commit war crimes, now they facilitate it,  against the wishes of most people & against all decency #USMilitaryOutOfShannon #WarCrimes

.@leovaradkar says we're all #InThisTogether but this state facilitates mass murder & destruction abroad,  do these lives not matter? @simoncoveney @dfatirl It's time to get the #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

#Covid19 shows us the importance of connectedness & solidarity, it shows we are all one human family. So let's stop helping the US military to hurt our sisters & brothers abroad by letting them use Shannon Airport #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

The US military is a bigger polluter than more than 100 countries combined so why does the Irish government facilitate them to destroy the planet through the use of Shannon Airport? #ClimateEmergency #ClimateJustice #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

The Irish state has imprisoned peace activists for trying to protect our neutrality & save lives but lets war criminals use @ShannonAirport this is wrong @michealmartintd #USMilitaryOutofShannon

We send solidarity to people suffering in wars across the Middle East, we reject Irish complicity with their persecution through the use of Shannon Airport by the US military.  Enough, no more war #USMilitaryOutOfShannon

Get tweeting everyone!
