Anti-Internment Picket Set for Newry

The Revolutionary Republican Party Saoradh have announced plans to hold an Anti-Internment picket in Newry at the end of August.

Announcing the party’s intentions Saoradh’s Newry representative and former Republican Prisoner Stephen Murney said “Due to the Covid pandemic there hasn’t been an Anti-Internment picket in Newry for a couple of years.

“The 50th anniversary of the reintroduction of Internment takes place in the month of August. However the practice began long before 1971 and indeed continues to this day with Internment by remand and the revocation of draconian licences. 

“This picket will afford people the opportunity to remember the internment of the past whilst highlighting present day Internment.”

Murney concluded “Therefore we are delighted to announce that we will be holding an event on Friday 27th August on the Downshire Road, facing the British Courthouse assembling at 7pm”.
