Two US Army Veterans will be completing a protest walk in Malin Head next week after walking from Limerick to Donegal.
Ken Mayers and Tarak Kauff, two former US servicemen, were arrested in March facing charges of trespassing and criminal damage at Shannon Airport. The men were accused of an alleged security breach for attempting to ‘inspect’ a plane.
Released on bail, the duo began a ‘Boots on the Ground for Freedom’ walk in a bid to return home to their families and to promote peace.
The protest movement began on 7th September. Mayers and Kauff will arrive in Letterkenny on Saturday 21st September and walk in stages to Bridgend and then from Buncrana to Malin Head, They intend to arrive at the “Eire” stone sign at Malin Head on Friday 27 September.
