The Nuremberg Principles are the basis for our demand that individuals seeking to prevent crimes against the peace and humanity not be criminalized. Please sign and circulate.

"Individuals have international duties which transcend the national

obligations of obedience. Therefore [individuals] have the duty to

violate domestic laws to prevent crimes against peace and humanity from

occurring." The Nuremberg Tribunal 1945-1946.

The US and UK have amassed a military force in preparation for a massive

assault against Iraq. In the previous aggression against Iraq in 1991,

terrible crimes against peace and crimes against humanity were committed by

the US and UK armed forces. The judgement of the Nuremberg Tribunal makes it

clear that citizens have the right and duty to seek to prevent the crimes

against peace and humanity that are clearly going to be committed against Iraq.

Six individuals are currently facing serious charges relating to the

disabling of a US Navy plane at Shannon airport. The Dublin Catholic

Worker 'Pit Stop Ploughshares 5' group are: Damien Moran, Ciaron O'Reilly,

Nuin Dunlop, Karen Fallon and Deirdre Clancy. Mary Kelly from Co. Cork is

facing similar charges for a disarmament action. Their actions were inspired

by the vision of Isaiah 2:4 to "beat swords into ploughshares." In accordance

with the PRINCIPLES of the NUREMBERG TRIBUNAL, we DEMAND that they are not

criminalised for their actions.
