DICHIARAZIONE DEL 32CSM SULLA BLOODY SUNDAY COMMEMORATION

E’ stata rilasciata una dichiarazione da parte del 32CSM (32 County Sovereignty Movement, n.d.r.)firmata da Gary Donnelly, sulla marcia di ieri (1 febbraio 2009, n.d.r.) a Derry in commemorazione della marcia soffocata nel sangue (Bloody Sunday, n.d.r.) dal corpo dal reggimento dei paracadutisti, il 30 gennaio del 1972.
Punti cardine della dichiarazione sono l’internamento senza processo e i metodi oppressivi e le intimidazioni, di cui i repubblicani e i repubblicani socialisti sono continuamente e brutalmente oggetto. Si è osservato un preoccupante aumento di queste azioni praticate dal PSNI/RUC, che hanno in alcuni casi portato al ricovero ospedaliero di molti repubblicani vittime  di percosse o di esposizione a gas CS.
Sono numerosi e troppi i prigionieri vittime o che sono stati vittime dell’internamento senza processo, uno strumento utilizzato dalle forze di polizia per soffocare la voce dei repubblicani. I casi più noti sono quelli Seamus Doherty, Martin Brogan, Mark Carroll, Neil Hegarty, Kevin Murphy, Brendan O’Connor, Sean Dillon, Sean Hoey e Don Mullan. Una particolare nota va al caso di Terry McCafferty, vittima di una vendicativa politica britannica di internamento che ricorda le politiche adottate nel 1972. Rilasciato un paio di settimane prima del Natale 2008, è stato poi ri-arrestato senza una specifica accusa e segregato nell’ala criminale del carcere di Maghaberry. Solo dopo aver iniziato uno sciopero della fame è stato reintegrato nell’ala riservata ai prigionieri politici.
Il fallimento del processo che ha visto protagonisti i quattro uomini di Derry (Derry 4, n.d.r.), è un esempio del fallimento di questa politica. Ma il carcere di Portlaoise rinchiude tra le sue mura altri prigionieri in attesa di comparire davanti alla corte a Green St.

32CSM address to Bloody Sunday event in Derry.
A chairde, On the 30th January 1972 thousands of people took to the streets of Derry to protest against the draconian laws that were being used against the Irish people, laws that allowed internment without trial. In response to the protest march the British unleashed one of the most notorious elements of their murder machine, the Parachute Regiment. These murderous thugs delivered Whitehall’s message in the most barbaric way in what was to become known throughout the world as Bloody Sunday.
Thirty-seven years after this massacre Britain’s imperialist machine is still using draconian and oppressive measures against those who oppose Britain’s illegal occupation of Ireland. In recent years the harassment, intimidation and beatings of Republicans and Republican socialists has continued unabated. There has been a marked increase in the viciousness and vindictiveness of the PSNI/RUC’s treatment of Republicans. Republicans have been hospitalised after severe beatings or being sprayed with CS gas and numerous attempts have been made to frame Republicans using false manufactured evidence. Some infamous cases have been those of Seamus Doherty, Martin Brogan, Mark Carroll, Neil Hegarty, Kevin Murphy, Brendan O’Connor, Sean Dillon, Sean Hoey and Don Mullan as well as others. Having been exposed in their underhand ways to try and send Republicans to prison for decades they have returned to more blatant and traditional methods of oppression.
Such oppression does not stop at the six counties as the British more recently have called on the native collaborators of the Free State administration to do their dirty work. Cases such as Colm Murphy’s highlight how far the Free State will corrupt themselves to appease their British masters. It is a fact that the Free State have deployed internment in the guise of ‘membership charges’ in an effort to silence Republicans and Republican socialists. The recent collapse of the trial of four Derry men has gone some way in exposing the nature of this form of internment. However, Portlaoise Prison is still full of cases of men convicted on the belief of a Garda superintendent, examples are Vinny Kelly, Sean Connolly, Adrian Kirwan and Mark Doran as well as other cases such as Declan Duffy, Eddie Mc Garrigle, John Mc Crossan and others which have yet to come before the illegal court at Green St. These people have been interned albeit with a veneer of legal process for cosmetic purposes.
However, in an unprecedented move the British deployed openly oppressive measures against a North Belfast Republican, Terry Mc Cafferty. Terry Mc Cafferty is a victim of a vindictive British policy of internment which is reminiscent of their policies of 1972. Terry was released from prison a few weeks before Christmas 2008. It was to be his first Christmas with his wife and five children in six years. His family eagerly anticipated this Christmas as they would have been re-united with Terry. Terry went on holiday with his family a fortnight after his release. Terry and his family were returning from their holiday on the 21st December with the intention of doing some Christmas shopping in the few remaining days before Christmas day. However, he was met as he got off the plane by the PSNI/RUC and returned immediately to a criminal wing of Maghaberry Gaol. Only after Terry refused food was he returned to the segregated wing which houses political prisoners.
