Historians call for release of colleague

WE, the undersigned, wish to register our protest at the imprisonment of our fellow Irish historian, Fintan Lane, and join in the call for his immediate release.

Fintan is serving a sixty-day sentence for his conscientious refusal to pay a fine arising from his participation in a peaceful protest at Shannon airport against the facilitation of the US military by the Irish government.
