The 32 County Sovereignty movement in Belfast condemn the politically motivated arrests of members of a local cumann which took place in Derry .
Houses were hit in early morning raids by members of the British RUC/PSNI tactical support groups who forced entry to homes and in their usual brash fashion proceeded to systematically take the houses apart, apparently looking for and removing materials linked specifically to the 32 County Sovereignty movement.
Warrants named the organisation which once again proves, if any proof were needed, that Political activism which is in opposition to the farcical document that is the Good Friday agreement leads to instantaneous arrest.
The dilution of Human and civil rights laws seem to be acceptable now amongst those now shoring up the British institutions. By buying into the sectarian puppet parliament and ignoring the increasing abuses inflicted day and daily on the Nationalist/Republican people, they have bought into the servile mentality that for years they had accused others of.
Derry city had more than it's share of sectarian discrimination by the supposed law enforcers and opposed the civil rights abuses almost to the man and woman in this city. Derry was the torch bearer and led the way in standing up for the human and civil rights of those targeted by the British state and Loyalist domineered statelet.
Now the people of Derry are being asked to close their eyes, to turn the other cheek as the bullyboys of the RUC with the backing of Stormont, discriminate and attempt to bully the families and children of Republicans. This, for having the audacity to have a political opinion which differs from the croppy servile mentality they want to drip feed onto our community.They arrest and Intern perceived Political opponents and with a nudge and a wink, hint that this is for the greater good.
They want a mindset where to question injustice is an affront to them and apparently punishable by visits to the local interrogation centre and/or immediate Internment as they try to figure out what can lies and falsified evidence they can introduce to keep Political activists/opponents in gaol.
The British Government, their quislings in Stormont and their bootboys in the RUC rely totally on the blind eye being turned,the media censorship and inaction of the public to continue to discriminate against in targeting one section of the Community. The freedom to have a varying political opinion is at risk.Derry once stood proud at the forefront of tackling the gerrymandering and political discrimination inflicted on our community.Stand proud again and oppose the Political Policing and Political and sectarian apartheid now being used punitively.
First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.
Then they came for the socialists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.
Then they came for me,
and there was no one left to speak for me.
