Also, Prisoners' Solidarity Picket Saturday 16th March 2013: 2pm, European Union Parliament office, Dawson St./ Molesworth St, Dublin 1. The picket is timed to be held just prior to the hearing of the appeal of the Spanish state against the judgement of the European Court of Human Rights in Strassbourg that ETA prisoner Inez del Río Prada should be released and paid €30,000 in compensation by the Spanish state and that they should pay the costs of €1,500. The Spanish state in 2006 had introduced legislation to extend the sentences of political prisoners beyond the previously-permissible maximum of 20 years. They also made it apply retrospectively to those sentenced prior to the change in legislation. The Spanish Government has challenged the unanimous ruling of the Strassbourg court panel and refused to release del Río pending the hearing of the appeal. Askapena, a Basque internationalist solidarity organisation, has called for protests to be held internationally around the date of the appeal and the Dublin Basque Irish Solidarity Committee calls for strong solidarity attendance at the this event.

All welcome Details - The 40th anniversary of the Dublin bombings of December 1972 and January 1973 will be marked with a significant commemorative event on Tuesday, 4th December 2012 at 11.30 am. A wreath-laying ceremony to honour and remember the three busmen who were killed will take place in Sackville Place at the site of the pavement memorial: ‘A Fallen Bouquet’. The Lord Mayor of Dublin, the CEO of Dublin Bus, Justice for the Forgotten and family members will lay wreaths. The CIE Male Voice Choir and Ms Grace Bradshaw, grand-daughter of the late Tommy Duffy (killed on 1st December 1972) will provide the music. Nobody has ever been arrested, let alone convicted, of these atrocities. Everyone is very welcome to attend and show solidarity with the families, some of whom will be travelling from overseas to attend the event. Please feel free to distribute the poster widely and get the word out. I appreciate it's not the best time - a Tuesday morning - to get a large attendance, but I believe this was done to allow relatives of all the families to attend, with some travelling from Scotland and england especially for the occasion.
