Protest outside Maghaberry jail

Around sixty protesters attended the Republican Sinn Féin picket outside the maximum security Maghaberry Gaol in County Antrim on Saturday, November 28th. They marched to the gates of the gaol and declared their support for the Republican Prisoners of War held within the heavily fortified perimeter walls, and for the ideals which had resulted in their incarceration.

A large British colonial police presence surrounded the gaol and the roads leading to it. Protesters' cars were torn apart by the RUC and individuals searched. They maintained a presence outside the gates as well as within the outer gate of the gaol.

The so-called prison authorities (screws) were abusive to visitors and prevented them from leaving the gaol after their visits until such time as the protesters had departed. However visitors to Republican PoWs thanked those present for attending to show their support for their loved ones. Other relatives were forbidden to take their scheduled visits.

True Republicans will continue to fight for the prisoners, including further solidarity protests for the “Men Behind the Wire”.

"We of Republican Sinn Féin are the nucleus, which represents what Emmet represented,
the soul of Ireland,the prophetic shock minority, those who are neither purchased nor intimidated."
