Statement from the Family & Friends of Republican Prisoners, Maghaberry
14th May 2012
We the Family & Friends utterly condemn the series of raids and arrests of prisoner family members and their supporters over the last number of days.
This is another example of the states attitude to republican’s who dare to stand up for the rights of political prisoners in Maghaberry.
During these politically motivated raids all material relating to the protest ie posters, placards, minutes of F&F meetings, prison crafts and prisoner’s letters/cards were seized.
The Family & Friends will not tolerate this blatant attempt to suppress our voice, this will only leave us more determined to increase our efforts to achieve a just and fair settlement to the current protest.
PRO, Family & Friends of Republican Prisoners, Maghaberry
