Relaunch of the Friends Of Colin Duffy campaign

Kilwilkee Support
The family and friends of Colin Duffy wish to announce the relaunch of their campaign. The campaign was "put on hold" in order to allow the family and friends of Colin to focus their attention on the recent protest in Maghaberry involving all republican prisoners of which Colin was a part of. As a result, Colin's family and friends played a significant role along with other families and ex-prisoners in forming the successful Families, Friends and Ex-POWs campaign group. The successful outcome within Maghaberry has allowed the space for Colin's campaign to get back on track.

While the relaunch of the campaign will mainly involve highlighting issues and lobbying specifically on Colin's behalf, Colin's family are also mindful of the volatile situation which still exists within Maghaberry and pledges to continue to assist all republican POWs and their families in the future.

Colin's family would like to take this opportunity to thank all those who have campaigned on behalf of Colin since his incarceration over a year and a half ago and also acknowledge the recent highlighting of Colin's situation by republicans. It is the hope of the campaign group that all those involved will redouble their efforts in the coming weeks and months.

Colin's family's involvement in the Families, Friends and Ex-Pows campaign allowed the family to come into contact with many republicans during that campaign. We would appeal to those who were involved to assist Colin's campaign in the future by emailing us at friendsofcolinduffy@googlemail.com or by using the contact us page on the website at Contact Us - E-mail address: friendsofcolinduffy@googlemail.com
