" A wealth of information..."

"1169 And Counting is a wealth of information on our Republican past and present , and demonstrates how the Irish political landscape , like that of any nation, will never be a black and white issue..."

(From the ‘e-Thursday’ section of the ‘Business Week’ supplement of the ‘Irish Independent’ , 21st August 2008.)



This blog was listed as one of the 'Finalists' in the '2016 current affairs/politics' category of the Littlewoods Ireland blog awards - but we didn't win the award. But not to worry -thanks to everyone involved for getting us to the final stage of the competition and sure we'll try again the next time!

PICKET THE BRITISH EMBASSY IN DUBLIN IN SUPPORT OF IRISH POW's !


"This citadel, this house of hell,
Is worshipped by The Law.
It's built upon a rock of wrong
With hate, and bloody straw.

They came and came their job the same
In relays n'er they stopped.
'Just sign the line!' They shrieked each time
And beat me 'till I dropped.

They tortured me quite viciously
They threw me through the air.
It got so bad it seemed I had
Been beat beyond repair.

The days expired and no one tired,
Except of course the prey,
And knew they well that time would tell
Each dirty trick they laid on thick
For no one heard or saw,
Who dares to say in Castlereagh
The 'police' would break the law!"

(Bobby Sands)

Despite what some anti-republican elements would have you believe , there are Irish Republican prisoners on this isle : more information on the POW's can be found here.
The POW Department of the Republican Movement will be placing a two-hour picket on the British Embassy in Ballsbridge, Dublin , on
Saturday June 28th 2008 , beginning at 1pm.
Your support would be appreciated!


POLITICAL STATUS FOR REPUBLICAN POW's !


Thanks,
Sharon.
