Republicans from all over Ireland will gather in Bundoran, Co Donegal at 3.00pm, on Saturday August 30 for Republican Sinn Féin's annual 'H Block Hunger Strike' commemoration . With the stepping up of the campaign for segregation and political status by Republican prisoners in Maghaberry and Magilligan jails, this years commemoration takes on an added significance.

The main speakers include Seán Ó Brádaigh, author of a recently published biography of Robert Emmet, RSF Ard Chomhairle member Fergal Moore, Monaghan, Mick McManus, Fermanagh, Bob Loughman, New York and anti-war campaigner, Mary Kelly who was recently acquitted by a jury at Kilrush Circuit Court of causing 'criminal damage to a US warplane which was being refuelled at Shannon during the recent US led war on Iraq. Guests of honour on the day will be relatives of the ten men who died on hunger strike in 1981.
