1989 – The Parade of Innocence September 24, 2009


25 years ago, A parade to celebrate the release of the Guildford Four and to continue to the pressure for the release of the Birmingham Six. The Birmingham Six were eventually released in March 1991.

The Birmingham Six, Guildford Four and The Maguire Seven were amongst the wrongful (and plainly so) convictions of Irish men and women in Britain during the troubles. Their cases were constantly covered by media for years before their eventual release and exoneration.

Communist Party Of Ireland (Marxist-Leninist)- ‘Marxist-Leninist Weekly’ Feb 3rd 1988 September 22, 2009


A copy of Marxist-Leninist Weekly from 3rd Feb 1988. Hits out at Britain and also Israeli Zionism. I’m not sure if this is the full version of the paper or a smaller pamphlet (Tabloid!) version of that weeks edition.

I can only presume that the group organizing the advertised Rally and march to the British Embassy ,”The Spirit of Freedom Committee” was the CPI-ML in ‘disguise’. A theme that runs through a lot of the Irish Left literature I have and I’d imagine internationally.
