Al Jazeera on Martin Corey PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 12 April 2014 17:00

The story of Internment in 1970s Northern Ireland is a sore and beleaguered one, mass arrests and imprisonment without charge or trial, of citizens opposing the absence of their civil liberties and endless discrimination at the hands of the state, of allegations of brutality from state forces, ranging from the physical to the psychological, a rather familiar sight today for Palestinians at the hands of Israeli troops in the Occupied West Bank.

Cait Trainor still remembers as a child her family home being raided by British soldiers and her father being hauled off for questioning, she does not identify with a the mainstream media narrative that events in Northern Ireland are a kind of catholic emancipation exercise, instead, she sees her struggle as a republican fighting for the removal of British occupation.

Martin Corey: Statement from POW Department, Republican Sinn Féin PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 22 January 2014 08:17
THE release of Martin Corey from Maghaberry jail in Co Antrim on January 14, 2014 was “not before time” according to Josephine Hayden, a spokesperson for the POW Department, Republican Sinn Féin who welcomed his release in a statement on January 15.
She said “The treatment meted out to Martin Corey for nearly four years was nothing short of barbaric and it was difficult to get the general public and the media interested in Martin Corey’s internment from the beginning. While, quite rightly, we saw/see criticism of the mistreatment of prisoners in other countries - on social media and in the press -- the case of Martin Corey was ignored, with a few honourable exceptions, by people here at home.

Finalmente después de casi cuatro años de internamiento, Martin Corey fue liberado de la cárcel Maghaberry, Condado de Antrim, el 15 de enero de 2014. Martin fue internado con pruebas secretas recogidas por la policía secreta y retenido sin cargos ni juicio desde abril de 2010.

El Gobierno británico, secretario de Estado y todos los involucrados en el internamiento de Martin Corey mostraron desprecio por los derechos humanos y participaron en una política despótica de gobernar por decreto.

Nos gustaría dar las gracias a todos los involucrados en la campaña para la libertad de Martin Corey, Republican Sinn Féin, los incontables activistas que estaban en los piquetes y los que fueron a la cárcel por poner de relieve el caso de Martin.

Aprovechamos esta oportunidad para dar la bienvenida a Martin a su casa y le deseamos la mejor de las suertes en el futuro.

Après quatre années d’internement, Martin Corey a finalement été libéré de la prison de Maghaberry, dans le comté d’Antim, le 15 janvier 2014. Martin avait été interné sur la base de preuves secrètes rassemblées par la police secrète, et détenu sans accusation ni procès depuis avril 2010. Le gouvernement britannique, le secrétaire d’Etat [à l’Irlande du Nord] et tous ceux qui ont été impliqués dans l’internement de Martin Corey ont montré leur mépris pour les droits de l’homme et ont pratiqué le despotisme de la lette de cachet. Nous voudrions remercier tous ceux qui se sont engagés dans la campagne pour la libération de Martin Corey et ceux qui ont été eux-mêmes emprisonnés dans le cadre de la défense de la cause de Martin. Nous profitons de cette occasion pour souhaiter à Martin un bon retour chez lui et le meilleur pour l’avenir.

Michael Campbell und die EU Präsidentschaft: Litauens Heuchelei PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 07 September 2013 12:07

Am 1. Juli 2013 übernahm Litauen für die kommenden sechs Monate die Ratspräsidentschaft der Europäischen Union von der Regierung in Dublin.

An diesem Tag wurde in Brüssel das Programm der litauischen Präsidentschaft vorgestellt. Vor dem Hintergrund der Behandlung des irisch-republikanischen politischen Gefangenen Michael Campbell und seinen unmenschlichen Haftbedingungen nannte der internationale Sprecher von Republican Sinn Féin, Dieter Blumenfeld, das Programm „reine Heuchelei“.

Das Programm verspricht dafür Sorge zu tragen, dass „die Institutionen der EU weiterhin aktiv den Schutz grundlegender Menschenrechte sowohl innerhalb der Union als auch darüber hinaus gewährleisten.“ Und weiter: „Bezüglich der südlichen Nachbarn wird Litauen den Fokus der EU auf eine tiefgreifendere Umsetzung des Europäischen Nachbarschaftsprogramms fördern und damit die Förderung von Demokratie und inklusivem und nachhaltigem Wachstum, basierend auf der Förderung von Menschenrechten, besonders gleichen Rechten und Freiheiten von Frauen und einer engeren Zusammenarbeit mit der Exilgesellschaft.“ Und schließlich behauptet das Dokument, die EU sei „bereit, beim Schutz von Menschenrechten die Führung zu übernehmen.“

In correspondence to both the Ministry of Justice in Vilnius and also the Lithuanian Ambassador to London the League have called for a review of the circumstances surrounding the imprisonment of Irish man, Michael Campbell, and endorsed calls for his repatriation to Ireland.

Michael Campbell & the EU Presidency: Lithuanian hypocrisy PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 29 July 2013 20:27

On July 1, Lithuania has taken the Presidency of the Council of the European Union from the 26 Counties Administration in Dublin for the coming twelve months. On this day, the programme of the Lithuanian EU-Presidency has been published in Brussels. Referring to the illegal treatment of republican prisoner Michael Campbell and the inhumane treatment in prison, Republican Sinn Féin International Spokesperson Dieter Blumenfeld called the programme of the Lithuanian EU-Presidency as “pure hypocrisy”.

The programme of the Lithuanian EU-Presidency vows to safeguard “that the EU institutions remain active in their protection of fundamental human rights both within the EU and abroad“. The programme continues: “Regarding the Southern neighbourhood, Lithuania will support the EU focus on more effective implementation of the European Neighbourhood Policy aiming at promoting democracy and inclusive and sustainable growth, based on promotion of human rights, especially the equal rights and freedoms of women, as well as closer cooperation with civil society.“ Furthermore the documents claims: “The EU is ready to take on leadership in protecting human rights.

The chapter D “Justice and Home Affairs” starts with: “The Council dedicates particular attention to the protection of interests and the needs of citizens and other EU residents, in order to ensure respect for fundamental human rights and freedoms.

Release of Marian Price welcomed PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 31 May 2013 21:46

“Not before time” is how Republican Sinn Féin welcomed the decision by the Parole Board in the Occupied Six Counties to release Marian Price on May 30, 2013.

For over two years the British authorities made Marion Prices’ life a living hell because she refused to bend to, or accept, British rule in Ireland.

Spurious charges were levelled against her and though granted bail by the courts, the British state refused to release her. Marion Price should never have been jailed in the first place.

Ramsey Clark supports release of Martin Corey PDF Print E-mail
Saturday, 18 May 2013 20:59

Ramsey Clark, President, International Anti-imperialist Coordinating Committee (IACC), and Founder, International Action Centre (IAC) has issued the following statement:

Martin Corey has been held in Maghaberry Prison illegally since April 2010 without any charge ever being placed against him. In fact no one knows why he is there, not even the judges who reviewed his case. Human Rights Judge Lord Justice Colman Treacy ordered in July 2012 his immediate release and placed no conditions upon him. With a blatant disregard of the judicial process the British Secretary of State overturned this order, and Martin remains detained in Maghaberry to this day. He is being victimized in prison in many ways and his basic rights are denied. I have long urged the release Martin Corey and once more reiterate that his detention is a violation of his fundamental human rights and he must be immediately released.

Ramsey Clark
