    I heard there was trouble.
    In a far away land. Only a young lad at the time, but to this day only one name stands out in my mind. More of a hero that a solder for me at the time war was not my kind. Listening to everyone talk and watch the tears roll down. There face and then hearing the words he’s in a better place! Bobby Sands RIP

    Bobby Sands, a beautiful, brilliant soul in a brutal, ruthless and ignorant world. Your strength, spirit and all encompassing love for justice and humanity can never be equalled. Your accomplishments and the world’s loss of you literally make my heart ache.

    Shame on my country for how we have treat our Irish neighbours. My unconditional respect and humility goes out to the many victims of the Irish people’s struggle for over two hundred years. Bobby Sands takes his place in history with Steve Biko. He’s in esteemed company. I share your loss, from a proud Yorkshireman and tainted Englishman.

    hi all i was doing a bit of history on the young irelander michael dwyer.and i came accross an old photo of the 1981 hungerstrike protests,and it was the dwyers club from the grosvenor road holding a vigual outside casement park,there was only two members at the banner,as i researched the photo in the dwyers club last week one of the guys in the photo was a man called willie delaney from the leeson street area,as by chance he was in the club hes a 74 year old man now and hes the president of the club,i showed him the photo,and he replied that the 10 men that died were irelands finest and then he blessed himself.i did not know that such a wealth of information could be gathered in such a wee club like the dwyers..jb.

    Yes it was amazing to hear the Tories apologize for the events of ‘Bloody Sunday’.
    How amazing to see them finally climb down from their ‘ British Military can’t be wrong’ high horses.
    How many years did that take?
    They must be getting really thick in the British aristocracy to have only just decided to admit their operational blunders.
    Must be 100 years of aristocratic inbreeding in that Tory party if you ask me!

    It is a step forward for the British Military to be shown to be wrong, as the Saville Inquiry demonstrated.

    More interesting still will be widespread recognition that the British military are terrorists in the meaning of UK Law – specifically Subsections 1(1) to 1(4) of the Terrorism Act 2000.

    See http://chilcotscheatingus.blogspot.com/2010/02/use-off-armed-force-by-uk-military.html for an explanation.

    British soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan are “terrorists” in the meaning of Section 40 of the Terrorism Act 2000.

    As an Australian of Irish extraction I am terribly Proud of Bobby Sands and all the other ‘Hunger Strikers” as well well as all the Volunteers who defeated the “Squaw Killers” of the English Army.

    One day the English Imperialists will be driven from Occupied Ireland.

Got something to say?
