Irish Activists on Trial

posted by Mike on March 11th, 2005

Some say the only good things to come out of Ireland are James Joyce and Lucky Charms. Add to that reports of the Pitstop Ploughshares trial in Dublin. This trial combines antiwar activism, Irish constitutional law (should a neutral country help the US wage war?), and, from today’s reports, lots of arguments over what evidience is even admissible. Featuring reportage from both Irishmen and Americans.

Update: The trial ended in a mistrial. Now it’s up to the State to decide if they will be tried again.

    You might want to change the PloughShares link to this one, as it’s a bit more permanent.
