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. Please note that the DIBSC asks for no party material and will supply placards and flags.
