Independent Hunger Strike Commemoration speeches from éirígí and IRSP
While the Provo co-adminstrators of continuing British rule in the six counties have managed to establish a monopoly over the commemorating of the 1981 hunger strikers, more radical forces which continue to uphold the principles for which the ten men died have formed an independent hunger strike commemoration committee. Among them are the Irish Republican Socialist Party and éirígí. As a strong supporter of socialist-republican co-operation and the eventual unification of all the socialist-republican forces in Irleand, I think this is a really positive initiative. Below are vids of Brendan Mac Cionnaith of éirígí, himself a former political prisoner and hunger striker, and Paul Little of the IRSP, a former political prisoner, speaking at the Belfast commemoration last Sunday (August 21).
