PSG activists and supporters face Political Policing.

September 25, 2012

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 an Éirígí comrade from Tipperary recieved 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 out 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.
