Prisoners protest Sat 29th Cork

category cork | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Wednesday September 26, 2012 01:00author by Prisoner Solidarity Groupauthor email prisonersolidaritygroup at gmail dot com Report this post to the editors

Two statements in one.

Selective Internment, torture, political policing....

The No wash/Dirty protests protests inside Maghaberry against
beatings, strip searching, torture and now the Chemical spraying of
cells, continues, Likewise, on the streets, solidarity also
continues. The Prisoner Solidarity Group will hold a picket at Daunt
sq @3pm Sat 29th.

We again call on those that have supported the pickets in the past to
come and join us this Saturday and show a united
front against the
recent Political Policing by the Special Branch. PSG activists and
supporters have received summons and fines for white line pickets and
postering, all very basic activities that all groups should defend.
Defend Cork's right to Peaceful protest!

Victory to the Prisoners!
Beir bua.

Statement 2

On the 30th of June the PSG held a white line picket in Cork city in solidarity with Republican Prisoners.
On the 17th of August PSG activists and supporters received summons to court for mid November, charged with obstructing traffic and public order. At no time was traffic obstructed an no one was in breach of the public order intoxicating liquor act. Just this morning (25th) an Éirígí comrade from Tipperary received a Fine for postering with us.

This is typical Anti-Republican policing from the Special Branch.
PSG activists have been harassed on a number of occasions while postering and on the monthly demos themselves.
Some of those charged with public order were not even approached by the Garda Special Branch on the day or members of the public order unit, even to ask them the usual “name and address” routine.

We are Republican and Socialist activists engaged in a campaign in Cork to highlight the Internment, abuse, torture and criminalisation of Irish people in a British Gaol in Ireland. Something which the mainstream media is keen to brush under the carpet.

Republican Prisoners, who see themselves as Prisoners of War (POWs), won the battle for segregation nearly ten years ago in Maghaberry and we are confident that they will win this current phase of prison struggle. We will continue to stand in solidarity with the men and women in Maghaberry and ensure that Cork continues to play its part.

Beir bua.
