Kildare Republican Sinn Féin held a picket at the Town Hall in Naas, Co Kildare on Saturday February 23 to highlight the ongoing internment without trial of veteran Republican Martin Corey by the British Government as well as the ongoing struggle for political status being waged by the Republican prisoners in Maghaberry prison in Co Antrim.

Speaking at the picket the Athy based national President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton said that the struggle of the Republican prisoners was part of the fight for a New Ireland: “It is part of the same fight as that against austerity and the troika of the EU,ECB and IMF that is holding this part of Ireland to ransom, it is part of the same fight against the sacrifice of this and future generation to bailout the EU’s banking system. Ireland is being assailed by two imperialisms, the new imperialism of the troika in the 26 Counties and the old imperialism of British occupation in the Six Counties, they are both two side of the same coin. The internment without trial of Martin Corey as well as the continued imprisonment of Marian Price gives the lie to those who would pretend that the Six-County State is a normal democratic state where civil and political rights are protected, their imprisonment expose it for the undemocratic and sectarian entity that it is. We call for their immediate and unconditional release.” Des Dalton said
