Protest outside Amnesty International Office for Irish and Libyan Politial Prisoners and Internees

category dublin | anti-war | event notice author Wednesday August 29, 2012 17:58author by Irish Anti-Imperialist Report this post to the editors

This Saturday, the 1st September 2012, anti-imperialists in Ireland will be staging a protest in solidarity with Irish Republican prisoners and also the 10,000 political prisoners held captive throughout Libya

The protest will commence at 2pm outside the main branch of Amnesty International, 48 Fleet Street in Dublin (beside Hard Rock Café).

In their 40 years of existence in Ireland, Amnesty International has blatantly refused to take up the case of human rights abuse directed towards Irish Republican Prisoners but instead has time after time,turned a blind eye to the on-going brutality of political prisoners, especially towards those who languish today in Maghaberry Gaol.

Amnesty’s collaboration with NATO in Libya, where they operated as an imperialist propaganda weapon, repeating every lie that the CIA could concoct, has resulted in innocent men, women and children, particularly Black people, being killed in their tens of thousands by NATO and its proxy Libyan Islamists and Comprador classes. Now thousands upon thousands of political prisoners remain held captive throughout Libya in some of the harshest conditions known to man.

Please come along and show your support for the prisoners and let Amnesty International know that we will not sit idly by while they pontificate to us about human rights abuse while totally ignoring it in our own backyards and in Libya.

All banners and flags welcome!!!

SOLIDARITY TO THE IRISH AND LIBYAN POWs!!!!

Further Information:
There will also be an event held by RSF for Republican Prisoners outside the GPO in Dublin on Saturday, 8th of September from 12:00 until 2:00pm. All Welcome!

There will also be a march from the Garden of Remembrance to the GPO in Dublin on September 15th at 2pm organised by the Free Marian Price Campaign. All Welcome.

I thought it was a disgrace that Amnesty Ireland was shouting their heads off this week and holding demos for Pussy riot in Russia, but have never uttered one whisper of concern for Marian Price. These hypocrites have to be confronted and exposed. They are everything that is rotten about the Irish middle class.

Just a reminder that if you are around town, we would be very happy to see you supporting Irish and Libyan prisoners and making a stand against internment without trial.

Congratulations to everyone who turned out to mark the 1st of September, the day Col. Muammar al-Gaddafi took power, and the day that was a major boost to anti-imperialism around the world, and marked the beginning of Libya's exit from the dark ages (tragically, the USA and its proxies have driven Libya back into the nightmare of chaos.)

We remembered all the political prisoners in Ireland and Libya, and called for their release.

Seems we upset Amnesty International though, a very irate lady came out of their office and asked us to stop exercising our right to protest. We asked her to stop killing children in Syria and start doing real work for political prisoners.
