Support prisoner solidarity protest, Cork, this Saturday (Sept 29)

The No Wash/Dirty Protest inside Maghaberry against beatings, strip searching, torture and now the chemical spraying of cells,  continues.  On the streets, solidarity also continues. The Cork-based Prisoner Solidarity Group will hold a picket at Daunt Square at 3pm, Saturday, September 29.

The PSG is calling on those that have supported the pickets in the past to come and join the protest this Saturday and show a united front both in support of the prisoners and against the recent political policing by the Special Branch.  Please let others know about this protest and encourage as many people to come along as you can.

Special Branch harassment of prisoner protests in Cork has led to court summonses for obstructing traffic and breaching public order

PSG activists and supporters have received summons and fines for white line pickets and postering, all very basic activities that all groups should defend.

The Special Branch hasn’t even bothered with the usual practice of stopping people and getting their names and addresses – they clearly have all these and just pass them on for the gardai to move on prosecutions for trumped-up accusations of blocking traffic and disturbing public order, even though the pickets are peaceful, legal and informational.

Defend Cork’s right to peaceful protest!

Victory to the Prisoners!

Beir bua.
