In August Republicans in the Derrybeg estate in Newry unveiled an impressive 24ft long mural demanding Colin's release and an end to Internment by Remand which also affects many other Prisoners. Despite a scathing attack on this project published by former Republicans in an anti-Republican blog, this mural is still there and is seen by hundreds of people every week.
We attended numerous pickets in support of Colin and his family in various places throughout the year.
éírígí defiantly declared that “We will not allow Britain’s occupation of Irish territory to go unchallenged.”
So what lies ahead in 2010?
Well already Republicans in Newry have several major projects in the pipeline for during the year, and we look forward to 2010 with confidence, so watch this space!!!
One thing i can promise you is that Republicanism in Newry will continue to grow and gain support in 2010 and we will be to the fore in the struggle for Irish liberation.
