Political Status Awareness/Action Day

Source -- NIFC Editorial Staff

Members of the National Irish Freedom Committee (NIFC) staged a very successful demonstration outside the British Consulate in NYC on Saturday October 14. The demonstration was part of the world-wide Political Status Awareness/Action Day to support the escalating struggle for political status by Irish republican prisoners.

Participants passed out leaflets with information on the escalating struggle inside British jails by the republican prisoners. Storyboards were carried by members of the group depicting the ongoing political status struggle beginning with the 1981 struggle in the H–Blocks.

The sidewalk in front of the consulate was busy with people; many of whom posed questions about the ongoing struggle for political status. The NIFC made its position clear by asserting that any attempt to criminalize the quest for a united 32-county federal Irish Republic, free of British occupation, will be resisted at every turn.

The following day, NIFC members taped an interview with a spokesperson from the Republican Prisoners Action Group in Ireland. Richard Walsh, PRO for the RPAG answered questions regarding the Republican prisoners, who are on protest in Maghaberry Prison. This interview -via telephone - was filmed as the first segment of the new NIFC Free Forum Video Discussion Series. It should be online in a few days time. So keep an eye on the NIFC website: www.irishfreedom.net
