'81 Website Remembering Hungerstrikers 25 years on!

category international | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Monday April 03, 2006 23:34author by Ógra B - Ógra Shinn Féinauthor email osf6county at yahoo dot com Report this post to the editors

This year, 2006, marks the 25th Anniversary of the 1981 Hunger Strike. As part of a year-long commemoration, a series of events has been organised throughout Ireland and abroad.

The official website of the Hungerstrike '81 Committee has been launched recently at www.hungerstrike81.com.

The website contains a wide range of information and news coverage of events as they unfolded in 1981, biographies of the Hungerstrikers and upcoming events relating to the 25th anniversary commemorations.

Ógra Shinn Féin spokesperson, Andrea O'Kane, speaking at the launch of the website said,

"Young people in Ireland and internationally should use this website to educate themselves on the true story of the '81 Hungerstrike, and to use it as a tool for developing ideas and ways in which they can commemorate and re-tell the story of '81 to the youth of today."

"We can learn alot from the 'Youth Against The H-Block' committee from 25 years ago, who organised Youth Marches, 'Rock The Block' concerts, torchlight processions, solidarity fasts, rooftop protests and occupations of state buildings - we must mobilise the youth of today behind the heroic sacrifice of these fine revolutionaries - in memory of the ten!"
