World-wide support for Irish republican Prisoners

International Day of Action to be held on October 27
Irish Republicans and their supporters all over the world will hold
an International Day of Action for Irish Republican Prisoners of War
on October 27. There will be at least 16 protests in 11 countries on
3 continents such as New York, Sydney, Rome, London, Rome,
Manchester, Toronto, Paris, Glasgow, Hamburg, Colorado, Darmstadt,
Dusseldorf, Magdeburg, Utrecht or Goteborg.
The International POW-Day 2012 is organised by the International
Committee ‘Support the POWs!’. Dieter Blumenfeld, spokesperson of
the Committee ‘Support the POWs!’ said: “More than 30 years
after the H-Block Hunger strikes ended, Irish prisoners are once
again forced to protest for their rights. Some of these men are on
dirty-protest for more than a year. Injustice in Ireland is growing.
Marian Price and Martin Corey are both interned for more than a year
and an Irishman held in a Lithuanian jail is denied his basic human
rights. We urge all Irish republicans, their supporters and political
activists to show support for the Irish republican prisoners on
October 27. Only international pressure can be successful in the
campaign to support the Irish republican prisoners.”
The republican prisoners in Maghaberry jail sent greetings to the
Committee ‘Support the POWs!’ saying: “The support we have
received from those across the world makes us more determined and
resolute, we are indeed grateful for such support, and ask for your
continued support and activism on our behalf. We applaud those of you
who take to the streets all over the world in protest at the detention
of true Republicans.”
Republican Sinn Féin will also hold pickets in support of the POWs
in Lurgan, Co. Armagh, Dublin and a stall in Galway. The Prisoners
Solidarity Group Cork will host their monthly POW-picket on October
27, too.
