Hi!

Between the years 1917 and 1981 , twenty-two Irish men died on hunger-strike in our on-going fight for Irish freedom. These men will be commemorated in Dublin on Saturday 2nd May 2015. Those attending are asked to assemble on the traffic isle facing the GPO in O'Connell Street, Dublin city centre, at 2pm.

The sectarian realities of ghetto life materialised early in Bobby's life when at the age of ten his family were forced to move home owing to loyalist intimidation even as early as 1962. Bobby recalled his mother speaking of the troubled times which occurred during her childhood ; "Although I never really understood what internment was or who the 'Specials' were, I grew to regard them as symbols of evil..." , Bobby was later to say. Of this time Bobby himself later wrote : "I was only a working-class boy from a nationalist ghetto, but it is repression that creates the revolutionary spirit of freedom. I shall not settle until I achieve liberation of my country, until Ireland becomes a sovereign, independent socialist republic..." The fight for the same Cause that Bobby Sands died for in 1981 is on-going today, as six Irish counties remain under the jurisdictional control of Westminster, which enforces that control with military occupation. A commemoration will be held in Dublin in honour of Bobby Sands, the thirteenth republican to die on hunger-strike since 1917: those attending this commemoration are asked to assemble at 2pm on Saturday May 2nd, 2015, on the traffic isle facing the GPO in O'Connell Street, Dublin.

Thanks for reading,
Sharon.

Hi!

On Saturday 2nd May 2015, at the GPO in Dublin, RSF held a rally to commemorate the 22 Irish republican hunger-strikers that died for their political beliefs between 1917 and 1981. The event was Chaired by Josephine Hayden and a representative from Na Fianna Éireann and the RSF International Bureau also addressed the gathering.
The weather was bad, the crowds were sparse, but the atmosphere at the rally was solid and the reason for the event was genuine and properly reflected in the manner in which it was done. Those that made it their business to attend are to be congratulated as are the organisers. A brief report and some pics can be had at the 'Related Link' , below, and a full report and more pics will be carried in the May 2015 issue of 'Saoirse', which goes to print on Wednesday 13th of this month.

Thanks for reading,
Sharon.
