Craigavon Trial is an attack on civil rights

The trial of 37 people – including the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton and Vice-President Fergal Moore – for participation in an anti-internment march in Lurgan Co Armagh in January of last year is due to take place in Craigavon Courthouse, Co Armagh on January 10, 11 and 12.

In a statement Republican Sinn Féin described the prosecutions as an attack on the right to publicly express a political opinion.

“In the Middle East people are being applauded for coming out on to the streets to demand political change but in the Occupied Six Counties Irish people are being prosecuted by the British state for doing the same thing. The prosecution of people for participating in a protest march – held on January 23 last to call for the release of veteran Lurgan Republican Martin Corey who has been held without trial in Maghaberry prison since April 2010 – is clearly an attempt to force Irish Republicans off the streets and to silence anyone who refuses to accept British occupation.

“Not for the first time Irish Republicans find themselves before a British Court for upholding the principle of “the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland” and in defiance of laws designed to silence the voice of protest. This political trial puts the political reality of the Six-County state under the spotlight and shows it to be still fundamentally undemocratic.”
