Vol. Billy Reid March Glasgow
The 32CSM was present at the WoSBA Volunteer Billy Reid March in Glasgow on Saturday 15th of May. Members of the Vol Charles Carrigan Cumann and the Gaughan/Stagg Cumann were there to support the commemoration of a brave volunteer who gave his life in the struggle for Irish freedom as well as to highlight the injustices, inhumane conditions and sheer brutality currently being endured by todays Irish Republicans, gaoled by the British as POWs and political prisoners, in Maghaberry Gaol.
Our message of solidarity, displayed by 32CSM members holding posters, with the prisoners and our demand for the restoration of political staus for all Irish political prisoners was warmly met by all those attending the days commemoration and march.
All copies of the Sovereign Nation were quickly distributed, demonstrating again that the voice of genuine republicanism has a growing audience in Scotland.
The 32CSM in Scotland will continue at every opportunity to campaign for the restoration of political status and to develop solidarity with those who languish in a British gaol in occupied Ireland. We are confident that support for the demands and with Irish political prisoners will continue to grow.
