Prisoners protest to be held in Derry.
A demonstration is to be held in Derry to highlight the ongoing detention of Marian Price and Palestinian hunger-striker Hana al-Shalabi.
Organised by Palestinian solidarity campaigners and the Prisons Crisis Group, the demo will be held at 5pm on March 21 in Guildhall Square.
Betty Doherty, spokesperson for the Prisons Crisis Group said: “Our group has been focused on prisoners in the North and particularly Marian Price.
“But the parallels with Hana’s case are striking. Both are in prison without charge or trial on the say-so of politicians. That is to say, both are political prisoners who have felt compelled to resort to hunger-strike to make their situation known and their voices heard.
“Linking the cases reminds us that the struggle for justice is the same the whole world over. We ask people to bring banners and placards to the Guildhall at five o’clock but most of all to bring themselves.”
