Public Meeting & Discussion
The recent release of Steve McQueen’s critically acclaimed movie Hunger has led to a renewed interest in both the 1981 Hunger Strike and the broader prison struggle of the 1970s and 1980s.
This is the context within which éirígí has organised a series of 1981 Hunger Strike-themed public meetings which will take place during the month of November.
On Friday (November 21), Kilwilkie Community Centre in Lurgan will be hosting one such event.
The main speaker will be:
Bernard Fox from Belfast who took part in both the ‘blanket’ and ‘no-wash’ protest before joining the 1981 Hunger Strike. Bernard remained on Hunger Strike for 32 days before premature medical complications caused his protest to be ended.
The details are:
