The National Hunger Strike 35th Anniversary Commemoration leaves Rosemount in Derry at 2pm where it will make it’s way with the Red Flag of International Socialism leading the Colour Party to the Irish Republican Socialist Movement memorial in the City Cemetery.

“Must we live in the shadow of the tyrant in the chains of slavery? And must we die to shake the shackles from our limbs and taste the fruits of liberty?
Surely it is not to much to ask for freedom and lasting peace in our native land? And surely it is not too much to be treated as we truly are – soldiers of Ireland and of the Irish People”
(INLA Volunteer Mickey Devine who laid down his life for political status on 20 August 1981)
Saoirse go deo!
