Dublin protest part of International Day of Action on Iraq

Dublin is playing its part in today's International Day of Action on Iraq.

An event organised by the NGO Peace Alliance will begin at 1pm in Parnell Square.

The protest is against the ongoing American occupation of Iraq, and claims the human rights violations are worse now than they were during the reign of Saddam Hussein.

Brendan Butler from the NGO Peace Alliance said that the group also wants to make the US military's use of Shannon airport an election issue.
