Marian Price campaign gains momentum
A packed meeting in Belfast on Thursday night heard prominent speakers denounce the continued internment of veteran republican Marian Price.
Organised in connection with International Women’s Day, the meeting was addressed by human rights activists Monsignor Raymond Murray and former Westminster MP Bernadette McAliskey.
Despite an unexpected last-minute change of venue, organisers said the meeting at Conway Mill was “a fantastic success, such was the size of the crowd that attended that people had to stand in the corridor looking in”.
The crowd heard appeals for increased public activism around her case.
Marian is a lifelong republican and was secretary of the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association (IRPWA) at the time of her detention. She has now been interned without cause for nearly a year.
Over the past eleven months her mental and physical health has severely deteriorated until she was recently moved to Hydebank Women’s Prison.
But there is growing concern for her well-being as result of her isolation.
“Marian was never released on licence and the British government are fully aware of this. They claim to have mislaid her pardon. This is quite simply an unbelievable excuse for the continuation of her illegal detention.”
The following report about her plight was provided by the ‘Justice for Marian’ website (http://www.freemarian.co.nr/)
