There was a large heavily armed RUC presence around the picket with armoured landrovers lined along the Falls Rd and at each end of the picket. The RUC also kept the picket under constant surveillance with the entire event being videoed.
This very successful event is just one of many that has taken place in recent weeks to highlight the plight Republican POWs have to endure in Maghaberry.
Whilst other people (with short memories) remain silent on the issue, Irish Republicans are taking to the streets demanding that our POWs are treated for what they are, political prisoners.
VICTORY TO THE POWs
