'We'll close Shannon'

One of the five anti-war protestors acquitted on Tuesday has vowed to close Shannon Airport if that's what it takes to end US military flights use of the airport.
"We would use tactics like blockading, trespass, occupation of the runway, appeals to the workers to go on strike and appeals to churches to organise around this issue. We're only limited by the power of our own imagination now."
That's as good a definition of 'emboldened' as I've ever seen.
