Irlandinformation
Stockholm: In solidarity with our comrades

(English further down)

Lördagen den 19 september 2020 besökte aktivister från Irlandinformation och Samidoun den Brittiska samt den Irländska ambassaden i Stockholm.

Vi besökte dessa två ambassader för att visa vår solidaritet med våra fängslade kamrater, både i fristaten och i de ockuperade sex grevskapen.

Vid de båda ambassaderna ställde aktivisterna upp sig med budskapsplakat, banderoll, och en fana för den Irländska Republiken.

Budskapen för de två aktionerna löd:

FREE THE SAORADH 9

FREE DR. ISSAM HIJJAWI

NO EXTRADITION OF LIAM CAMPBELL

Free the Saoradh 9:

I slutet av augusti 2020 blev det republikanska och socialistiska partiet Saoradh utsatts för stark repression i såväl de ockuperade områdena i norra Irland som i den irländska fristaten i söder. Ingripanden genomfördes mot tio representanter för partiet, samt att fyra kontor tillhörande partiet genomsöktes.

I nu läget sitter nio representanter från Saoradh misstänkta för att ha kopplingar till The New IRA.

Free Dr Issam Hijjawi:

Dr. Issam Hijjawi greps den 22 augusti 2020 på flygplatsen Heathrow efter att ha besökt Derry. Dr. Issam Hijjawi greps som en del av den MI5-ledda operationen mot Saoradh som gjort att nio representanter från Saoradh är misstänkta för att ha kopplingar till The New IRA.

Den 16 september nekades Issam Hijjawi att få sin frihet mot en borgenssumma. Dr Issam Hijjawi lider av flera allvarliga hälsoproblem och sitter för tillfället i isolerad på Foyle House, ett fängelse som inte är byggt för att hantera individer med alvarliga sjukdomar.

No extradition of Liam Campbell:

En domstol i den irländska fristaten har beslutat att utlämna republikanen Liam Campbell till Litauen, där han står anklagad för förberedelse till vapensmuggling.

Campbell, som över huvud taget aldrig har besökt Litauen, står på mycket lösa grunder anklagad för att från Irland ha planerat en vapensmuggling som aldrig blev av, och där det finns skäl att ifrågasätta om några riktiga planer alls

Stöd till de hungerstrejkande fångarna:

I samband med rådande situation har Irländska Republikanske fångar inlett en två veckors hungerstrejk. Vi vill i samband med detta uttalande även ge vårt helhjärtat stöd till de hungerstrejkande.

On Saturday September 19, 2020, activists from the Ireland Information Group and Samidoun Stockholm visited the British and Free State embassies in Stockholm.

We visited these two embassies to show our solidarity with our imprisoned comrades, both in the Free State and in the occupied six counties.

At the two embassies, activists lined up with message posters, banners, and the flag for the Republic of Ireland.

The messages for the two activities were:

FREE THE SAORADH 9

FREE DR. ISSAM HIJJAWI

NO EXTRADITION OF LIAM CAMPBELL

Free the Saoradh 9:

At the end of August 2020, the Socialist Irish Republican party of Saoradh was subjected to severe repression in both the occupied territories in the north of Ireland as well as in the Free State in the south. Securitas forces carried out actipns against ten representatives of the party, and four offices belonging to the party were searched.

At present, nine representatives from Saoradh are suspected of having links to The New IRA.

Free Dr Issam Hijjawi:

Dr. Issam Hijjawi was arrested on August 22, 2020, at Heathrow Airport after visiting Derry. Dr. Issam Hijjawi was arrested as part of the MI5-led operation against Saoradh that has left nine Saoradh representatives suspected of having links to The New IRA.

On September 16, Issam Hijjawi was denied bail. Dr. Issam Hijjawi suffers from several serious health problems and is currently in solitary confinement at Foyle House, a prison not built to treat individuals with serious illnesses.

No extradition of Liam Campbell:

A court in the Irish Free State has decided to extradite Republican Liam Campbell to Lithuania, where he is accused of prepatations for arms smuggling.

Campbell, who has never visited Lithuania at all, is accused on very loose grounds of having planned an arms smuggling from Ireland that never happened, and where there is reason to question any real plans at all.

Support for the hunger-striking prisoners:

In connection with the current situation, Irish Republican prisoners have begun a two-week hunger strike. In connection with this statement, we also want to give our wholehearted support to the hunger strikers.

The Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association are glad to report that Dr Issam Hijjawi has finally been taken to an outside hospital for his long awaited MRI scan.

This was first highlighted by the IRPWA on the 13th of September; a scenario that was not called for if the Maghaberry regime had of acted with the due care that it officially holds.

However, the IRPWA are gravely concerned as to the medieval behaviour of the Maghaberry regime towards Issam on his return.

They have forcefully and punitvely isolated Issam for another two weeks on the filthy and dilapidated conditions that exist on Foyle House.

Issam, who has multiple health conditions, has insisted that if this happened he will embark on a hungerstrike. We feel that to put Issam in isolation is being vindictive and a continuation of the concerted, petty targeting that he has endured since entering Maghaberry.

The Republican Prisoners in Maghaberry Roe House and Portlaoise E3/E4 will support Issam in this stance by engaging in a solidarity hungerstrike alongside him.

It is the prisoners and the IRPWA’s belief that this could and should have be averted if the Maghaberry regime applied logic and common sense. There is room on Roe House to safely isolate Issam until the results of a Covid-19 test is complete.

It is widely known that recently an O. D. C prisoner who was on Foyle House had tested positive for Covid-19. To punitively isolate Issam in Foyle House that is not fit for a human being for a day never mind two weeks is proof yet again of the attitude and mindset of the regime in Maghaberry.

The IRPWA urgently call on the Maghaberry regime to step back from confrontation and apply common sense by transferring Issam to Roe House where his needs can be safely and humanely cared for.

The Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association wish to highlight the case of our friend and comrade Dr Issam Hijjawi who was remanded to Maghaberry on the 25th of August.

What follows is the systematic maltreatment that Republican Prisoners face from the Maghaberry regime.

On arrival at Maghaberry Issam immediately made staff aware of his medical conditions. They showed complete ignorance and had a blasé attitude. Issam was showing symptoms pointing to him having cauda equina syndrome. This is a condition that requires immediate attention. On a medical leaflet about the condition, it states twelve symptoms. Issam is displaying ten of these.

It took Issam to write seven letters to the M.O and the governor from his cell in isolation, while threatening a hunger strike just to seek medical attention. This took eight days to achieve.

The physio eventually talked to Issam by phone and said that she would need to see him in person. After this took place the physio declared that he would need an MRI. As of yet Issam still has not received the MRI. Issam suffers from a number of health conditions. From a prolapsed disc to suffering the effects of a heart attack in 2017. He also suffers from prostate hypertrophy, this is a condition that is treated with medication to help one urinate. Without the medication the condition leaves one in excruciating pain. To date the prison has failed to give Issam his medication on three separate occasions.

After Issams heart attack he has been on constant medication with regular blood pressure checks. Even though he has requested his medication and check up he has yet to receive a check up while again the prison has failed to give him the medication when required.

The pain medication that Issam has been given is inadequate for what he currently needs. This is the reality for Republican Prisoners in Maghaberry. They are treated with disdain and a complete lack of basic human rights by a morally bankrupt regime.

The vindictive nature of the regime was laid bare for Issam while he was to have a Zoom call with his wife and family. On entering the room that facilitates the call, Issam seen the screen was blank. He made the staff aware of this, they retorted that "she was there 5 minutes ago". The staff left Issam in the room staring at a blank screen for 20 mins before entering and bluntly saying "she disconnected".

On arrival back on Roe 4 Issam was obviously distressed and because of lock up had to wait an hour and a half before he could phone home to speak with his family. When he did so, his wife was emotionally distraught as she confirmed that the call was terminated by Maghaberry. Issam has now relayed this to his legal team.

Issam is surround by his comrades and they all take strength from one another while confronted by this twisted and vile regime.

The IRPWA stand with Issam and his family, just like we stand with all our imprisoned comrades and their families.

We call on all Republicans to show your support for the prisoners by getting behind your local Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association.

Victory to the Republican Prisoners!

Vi står med Eimhear!

Nyligen har irländsk rebellmusik, den musik som berättar historien om århundraden av kamp och högtidlighåller minnet av de som stupat i kampen, kommit under attack.

Trots att det finns många kända band har en sångerska, Eimhear, särskilt pekats ut. Bakom uthängningarna och mediadrevet ligger så kallade Victims Groups, vilka genomgående tenderar på att söka peka ut IRA-aktivitet under the Troubles som kriminell, medan man blundar helt för att den absoluta merparten av civila dödsoffer föll för kulor från den brittiska armén och lojalistiska dödspatruller.

Vi i föreningen Irlandinformation står bakom den irländska frihetskampen, och då självklart även bakom de som via musik och sång söker upprätthålla minnet av de strider som varit samt hålla glöden vid liv för den fortsatta kampen. Vi ser de attacker mot kulturella yttringar som nu försiggår som förkastliga, och vi står med Eimhear!

We stand with Eimhear!

Recently, Irish Rebel Music, the music that tells the story of centuries of struggle and celebrates the memory of those who fell in the struggle, has come under attack.

Although there are many famous rebel bands, a singer, Eimhear, has been singled out. Behind the campaign and the media drive are so-called Victims Groups, which consistently tend to try to point out IRA activity during the Troubles as criminal, while completely turning a blind eye to the fact that the vast majority of civilian casualties fell for bullets from the British army and loyalist death squads.

We in the Ireland Information Group stand behind the Irish freedom struggle, and of course also behind those who, through music and song, seek to uphold the memory of the battles that have been in the past, and keep the spark alive for the continued struggle. We see the attacks on cultural expressions that are now taking place as reprehensible, and we stand with Eimhear!

Som volontär i södra Irland såg Alan sin roll att försvara arbetarklassen i Dublin, en stad där kriminella och knarklangare förpestar livet i arbetarområden.
Alan var ständigt aktiv och stod i fronten i denna kamp.

If they aren’t able to destroy the desire for freedom, they won’t break you. They won’t break me because the desire for freedom, and the freedom of the Irish people, is in my heart. The day will dawn when all the people of Ireland will have the desire for freedom to show. It is then we’ll see the rising of the moon.
