Independent protest in solidarity with all republican prisoners

24th march 3pm daunt sq Cork city

SUPPORT REPUBLICAN PRISONERS, JOIN THE PROTESTS!

PROTEST AT DAUNT SQ CORK CITY 24TH MARCH 3PM

Thirty one years on from the H-blocks where ten men died for political status, republican prisoners are on dirty protest fighting criminalisation. The current protest has been going on now for nearly a year. Whether you agree with the politics of those imprisoned,held on remand or interned doesnt matter, the prisoners deserve your support. Rather than underestimating the seriousness of the situation in Maghaberry we need to act now.

The Prisoners face forced strip searching and beatings on a daily basis,going to and from court and visits and they are subjected to controlled movement otherwise known as a denial of free association on the landings in roe house.
What they are fighting for is the implementation of the 12th August agreement*, an agreement which brings an end to strip searching through use of a BOSS chair (body orifice security scanner) and sees an end to controlled movement in a phased manner.

At a time when Ireland as a whole is suffering cuts to its living standards more and more struggles are being given life everyday,as opposition to austerity grows. As anti capitalists and anti imperialists these issues cannot be separated, the Left needs to come together with Republicans in a form of symbyosis and do what it can for the republican prisoners in Maghaberry, their struggle is our struggle.
Support republican prisoners, join the protests or organise one!

this protest was attacked by gardai. protesters were assaulted in what was obviously an attempt to publicly humiliate and intimidate them. at one stage about five or six people were involved

'The Prisoner Solidarity Group held a very successful demonstration in Cork City today(saturday) to highlight the current situation in Maghaberry prison and the plight of ALL republican political prisoners in this country and abroad. Over 20 comrades from éirígí, 32CSM, RSF, RNU and independent republicans, socialists attended the event. There was great interest from the public and over 200 hundred leaflets ...were distributed to passers by. The demonstration also drew the attention of the special branch who applied the usual tactics and began to take names and addresses from those in attendance. The branchmen showed familiar traits when they attempted to illegally and forcibly search one of the demonstrators and also grabbed another demonstrators phone from him while he was filming the incident and proceeded to search through the phone. Despite this harassment all in attendance stood their ground and remained on the streets long after the branchmen had left. It was another great show of unity from all groups in attendance and the Prisoner Solidarity Group will continue to bring this issue to the attention of the Cork public. BEIR BUA..'.
