RUC to Raid Every Home in Drumbeg/Meadowbrook

category armagh | miscellaneous | press release author Tuesday March 17, 2009 00:41author by Richard Walsh - Republican Sinn Féinauthor email tiocfaidh at btinternet dot comauthor address c/- Teach Dáithí Ó Conaill, 223, Parnell Street, Dublin 1, Irelandauthor phone +44-7835 620 592 / +353-87 261 8603 Report this post to the editors

RSF has learnt that the RUC are intending to raid every address in the Drumbeg/Meadowbrook areas of Craigavon, Co. Armagh.

Republican Sinn Féin understands that the RUC are currently seeking what they have termed a “block warrant”, which would enable them to raid each and every home in the Drumbeg and Meadowbrook areas of Craigavon in County Armagh by the weekend. This follows countless raids being conducted over the course of the past number of days, including over thirty premises being raided on Monday, 16th March.

A spokesman said that this would inevitably be met with the resistance of the people of the area, adding that, as always, the youth of the area have shown remarkable courage when resisting the British forces of occupation. He also highlighted other RUC activities over the course of the past week:

“In one instance the person named on the search warrant had not resided at the address for nearly two decades", he said.

“One man was informed by the RUC of a threat to his life by an unnamed Loyalist death squad. Whilst delivering notification of the death threat, the British colonial police laughed incessantly about the situation.

“The number of people being detained is rising constantly, with two of these being held since last Tuesday. It has also emerged that one of the detainees was seriously assaulted by the RUC during the course of his arrest.

“We have also received reports of young women being searched along with their prams when coming into and out of estates in the area. This has become a regular occurence over the past couple of years when the area has been raided.”

Republican Sinn Féin urges the people of North Armagh to stand firm against the brutal repression currently being employed by Martin McGuinness and John O'Dowd's bedfellows in the RUC.

this is a disgrace. your narrowminded views are unwanted by all but a tiny minority. you seem to want to relive the old days of midless violence. grow up, you are a pathetic bunch, who do even understand the current social or political climates. you will not succeed with this propaganda, the people united will never be defeated. and you, do not serve the people.

The pretext that these individuals represent "True Republicanism" if not so serious would be a joke. The heroes from the past that these people are trying to emulate would be turning in their graves. The "repression" they talk about is of their own making. The conditions are in place for every shade of political view point to have an equal footing. Anyone as long as they persue peaceful means can have their say and argue their possition. The sad point for me is that a lot of RSF's social views are ones that I could go allong with, this country needs an opposition to the right wing assembly, but dragging us all back to the past of killing and mayhem is too high a price to pay. If RSF has any confidence in the support they have why not take the leap into the 21st century.

Whether people agree or not with the killing of the colonial soldiers and police they should be able to stand up against repression. Collective punishment by colonial forces for the actions of a small number of people has been unfortunately standard through much of modern history but is wrong for all that.

It's times like these that show who the genuine anti-imperialists are and who are not. The area in question is one of the most deprived in the Six Counties and some people seem content to let them suffer. What is really sickening is to justify that repression or to ignore it.

This story is propaganda at its worst. There is no factual references and it is misleading. Here is two questions for the author,Firstly can you tell me the last time a British Soldier fired a shot at an Irish national and the second question is Who is the only group shooting and terrorizing Irish nationals.

The answer to the first question is long before the 1994 agreement so why are republicans now shooting soldiers.
The only people shooting and terrorizing Irish citizens are Republicans. FACT!
I now see your war mongering has caused the devastation of 3 families and the liberty of two young men who have now been charged. Sounds like republican progress?

The author of this article should read some real books, ones that involved great people who fought real oppression such as Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King and JFK to name a few. They all refer to love, peace and unity.
My point being, the only way to unify Ireland is to unify its people. Take heart from the Ireland Rugby team, no division just one team followed by happy citizens north and south.

I still say we should oppose British colonialist oppression. References to public and historic figures does not change that, but since we're going there it would be worth examining which of the three names was genuinely against imperialism and what happened to him.
