Statement from Republican Prisoners Roe 4 Maghaberry 11/09/15
For 3 weeks Republican Political Prisoners, Roe 4, have been refusing jail meals. This protest action was commenced because of the further enclosing of our already restrictive living space when a steel hatch to allow food and proper ventilation was closed. The decision to further attack our limited regime was taken by Security Governors.
This morning, at around 10.30am, two such Governors came to Roe 4 landing and were challenged on the closing of the hatch and other issues. The two Governors, David Savage and Andrew Tosh, refused to engage and hit the alarm bell so as the Riot Squad would be brought on to Roe 4. Later that afternoon, Governor Brian Armour arrived onto the landing and he too was challenged and likewise refused to engage with the prisoners. All such actions by Governors in Maghaberry are in sharp contrast to those attempting to bring about a conflict free environment.
David Savage, Andrew Tosh, Brian Armour and all the other bigots will be challenged by Roe 4 Republican Political Prisoners regardless of Riot Squads or threats of charges.
