POLITICAL STATUS NOW!
END BRITISH TORTURE OF REPUBLICAN POWS!

On Saturday the 5th of June at 2pm there will be a protest held at Drogheda Town Centre, West Street, Drogheda, Co Louth, the purpose of this protest is to highlight the barbaric prison regime within the 6 occupied counties, and to show solidarity with republican prisoners who continually endure inhuman and degrading treatment under this regime.

Currently prisoners in Maghaberry Gaol in Antrim are being subjected to physical and psychological torture by their British jailers, some examples of the abuse being met to the prisoners is beatings, 23/24 hour lock-ups, strip searches before and after visits(this always includes family members and friends visiting), continued illegal internment for those on remand with no sign of any future trial, prohibition of practise of Irish culture, music, etc

There has been a media blackout in the South regarding this crucial matter, and most of the political establishment have chosen to ignore the issue and in some cases advocate the behavior of the British prison administration in their criminalisation of republican prisoners. In 1981 ten republican prisoners perished through hunger strike in a desperate bid to have to have their right to POW status and dignity recognised, their efforts became world renowned , unfortunately in 2010 their legacy is slowly being eroded and it is now time for republicans to remember the sacrifice of Bobby Sands and his comrades and take a stand in opposition to the British criminalisation and torture of current republican prisoners.

As this is an independently ran protest, we ask ALL republicans and those concerned about the issue who are able to attend to please do so, all banners, flags, leaflets, etc welcome

See you all on the 5th

POLITICAL STATUS FOR REPUBLICAN PRISONERS NOW!
