‎2012 Maghaberry Protest Fast – LETTER TO PRINT MEDIA

SUPPORT THE REPUBLICAN POWS IN MAGHABERRY

Dear Editor, 

I was shocked when, I became aware that on 14th August 2012 four well known Tyrone Republican prisoners were forced to undertake a Hunger Strike. This is because they are been denied access to Republican landings in Maghaberry prison. They are still on Hunger Strike as I write this letter. 

These prisoners are on remand because they were arrested and charged by crown forces. Every aspect of their arrest, questioning and detention, points to the fact of a suspicion by the authorities as to a political offence.I have also become aware that they are being denied political status not by their captors, but by a minuscule political organisation with its headquarters at 223 Parnell Street, Dublin.As a life long Republican and former member of the National H-Block Committee and chairman and founding member, I find it unbelievable that any one would deny these men political status. I know that some of those denying such were at one time members of their local H-Block committees. I must ask have they forgotten this or are they ashamed of that part of their lives.I would take this opportunity to remind them that one of the slogans of the National H-Block committee was:

POLITICAL STATUS IS A RIGHT NOT A PRIVILEGE

Is mise,

Des Long
