Some bits and pieces from here and there:
- Two Irish legislators who were convicted of participating in a direct action against U.S. armaments passing through the Shannon airport have refused to pay their fines. One of them, Clare Daly, told reporters: “We have no intention of paying a financial contribution to a State which allows this behaviour [the arms shipments] to continue.”
- Seacoast Peace Response got some press for their annual tax day “penny poll.”
- A man who calls himself “Squirrel” was arrested in Florida for phoning in a threat to destroy the IRS building in Miami.
