The above committee is made up of former political prisoners, H-Block activists, aligned and non-aligned republicans who wish to commemorate the 22 Irish Republicans and Socialists who gave their lives on Hunger Strike in the struggle for Irish Freedom and Independence in the 20th Century.
The Belfast Hunger Strike Commemoration is non-party political. We are calling on all republicans who wish to honour Irelands Martyred Dead to support the Independent Hunger Strike Commemoration Sunday 2nd May 2010.
To that end, we are inviting all political parties, H-Block activists, aligned and non-aligned republicans to support the Commemoration. The commemoration march assembles at College of Art York Street at1-30.p.m. and will be leaving at 2-00.p.m. en-route to Dunville Park.
No party political banners or flags will be carried, only black flags and photographs of the Hunger Strikers are to be carried. There will be no party political speeches. We intend to release 22 doves to commemorate each Hunger Striker. Five bands are due to attend.
Greater love than this no man hath, than a man lay down his life for his friends.
