WHITE LINE PICKET FOR REPUBLICAN PRIONERS, CORK CITY JUNE 30th
assemble daunt sq 3pm
The Prisoner Solidarity Group are calling on all republicans,
socialists and anyone that believes in the protection of human rights
to come out and stand with us on a white line picket on June 30th in
solidarity with ALL republican prisoners and to help highlight the
injustices that our political prisoners face.
In Maghaberry striking republican prisoners are living in conditions
reminiscent of the H-Block’s in the 1980s and face daily forced strip
searches at the hands of the loyalist prison screws, a degrading and
unnecessary act which only serves to rob the prisoners of their
dignity and pride. Many of these prisoners are ‘interned’ without
crime or trial, and those that are brought before the courts are
trialed in diplock courts where the word of British agents is enough
to secure a guilty verdict. The 6 county Justice Minister David Ford
has refused UN doctors entry into the prison and also has ignored the
pleas of the Norths top criminologists to release Marian Price due to
her ailing mental and physical health.
In Lithuania Michael Campbell
is serving a 12 year sentence in the notorious Lukiskes Prison with no
attempt made by the Department of Foreign Affairs to repatriate him so
he can serve his sentence in an Irish prison where family can have
easy access to visits. This is a politically motivated decision and
exposes the nature of state oppression against republicans.
If you believe in the protection of human rights then we are calling
on you to come out and stand with us on Saturday June 30th in Cork
city. Only through large unified protests can we make our voices be
heard. Bígí linn.
