Christmas protest for the prisoners.

December 15, 2012
Successful protest today despite the wet and cold weather, activists from Éirígí, 32csm, R.S.F, a veteran of the border campaign and independent Republican Socialists took to the streets to call again for the implementation of the august agreement in Maghaberry Gaol.The experienced veteran gave very wise advice to one activist about logging all incidents of harassment and intimidation by members of the Gardaí with a legal representative in the event of something happening in custody behind closed doors.

At one point members of the Special branch approached one activist to warn him “if you want to get aggressive with us we’ll get aggressive with you…..your posters are illegal” which was a reference to an incident where an activist was pepper sprayed and assaulted for something as basic as postering. Throughout the year the aggression has been a one way street, namely coming from the Gardaí in their overzealous approach to our right to politically organise.

We wish to send Solidarity greetings this Christmas to the Prisoners and their Families and we wish them all the best in the New Year.

Beir bua!
