Thanks for the post Niall. I'll be there Saturday week
Wish I could have been there.
Thanks for the article and great pics.
Solidarity to Pat,his family and all those continuing to refuse to lie down in the face of shell and the states brutality.
It's true what they say, "A picture is worth a thousand words." One could see the distress, the emotions, and the unflinching support in the posted pictures. We, the Chief's older sisters in the States, are very concerned about his well being and it's reassuring for us to see the enormous amount of support he has. We know that this tribute will raise his spirits and make him proud. A very special thank you to all of you!!!
the pics and the report has sent me to tears - your honesty, integrity There is no price that you and the chief will accept and so all the crimalisation of our local people occurs. Your stand has justice and truth on yer side and this will come out in the end. Ireland is a very corrupt country but your refusal to be corrupted gives me hope for my children. Thank you for your stand-your are doing it for all ireland.
This affair shines an unflattering light on the courts in Ireland. The sentence was greatly disproportionate to the 'crime'. Why was this? Consecutive sentences are an aberration.
Stop for a moment to consider what has probably happened here.
The Chief is no criminal - it's those that put him there should be jailed! Please show your support by any means possible - cards & letters & reading material help allay the boredom of prison.
- The song 'Legal Illegal' performed by Frances Black.
"To poison the rivers the seas or the skies,
And poison the minds of a nation with lies,
It's all in the interest of free enterprise,
Nonetheless it's perfectly legal."
