Derry 32 County Sovereignty Movement

Derry 32 County Sovereignty Movement | SocialAction2014 | Scoop.it
The 32csm acknowledge that the decision to drop the politically motivated charges arising from the 2011 Easter commemoration against  Marian Price, Patrick MacDaid, Marvin Canning and Frankie Quigley  was the only logical outcome.
Spurious charges were brought against these 32CSM members in an attempt to intimidate all engaged in spreading the Republican political message. With the dropping of these charges it is becoming ever more clear that there is no legal or moral right for the British government to continue the internment of Marian Price. Marian was released on bail on the original charges before being interned for unspecified "security reasons" on the word of a British secretary of state Owen Patterson. Marian was given a pardon upon her original release from jail and was not released on licence and therefore her imprisonment has no legitimate legal basis. The British government has claimed that they cannot find this pardon or have shredded it. 
This blatant disregard for human rights and due process is an example of British justice in Ireland. We thank all those who have raised concerns and joined the campaign to call for Marian's immediate release. The eyes of the world are watching the six counties once again as the British government continues it's shameful legacy of internment and abuse of Republicans. We call on them to release Marian, whose health has deteriorated to the point that she cannot even attend court. We will not stop our campaign until she is at home once again with her family.
