The IRSP Women’s Group in Strabane have called a white line protest against selective internment.
The protest is to be held in Strabane at Market St on Saturday 1st October to show solidarity and highlight the plight of Republican political prisoner Marian Price.
Marian Price, a 57 year old life long Republican, is currently being held in the all-male Maghaberry prison. Marian Price is being held through revocation of her license. This has been conducted without trial and is plainly modern day internment. We would also state that this also makes a mockery of the notion that the Good Friday Agreement marked an end to the conflict. It is certainly no coincidence that those people currently being pursued by the state are prominent activists who have expressed their opposition to the GFA.
The IRSP Women’s Group are totally opposed to selective internment without trial and we hope to bring awareness to this issue at a local level by calling this white line protest.
