LINK TO CALLING ALL REBELS ANOTHER HUNGER STRIKE IN IRELAND
In the seas of time you float serene,
Oh! silver stars of nations born,
And you draw a tear to free men's eyes,
Through dungeon bars forlorn.
Oh! star of Erin, queen of tears,
Black clouds have beset thy birth,
And your people die like morning stars,
That your light may grace the earth.
BobbY Sands died in 1981, in prison after 66 days of hunger-striking, aged 27. The significance of the hunger strike was the prisoners' aim of being declared as political prisoners (or prisoners of war) and not to be classed as criminals. Today Liam Hannaway is 38 days on Hunger Strike, he needs your support and help!
