People Before Profit Calls For Attendance At Tony Taylor Protest In Belfast


People Before Profit has called on people to join the protest in against the continuing detention of Tony Taylor, this Saturday at the international wall in West Belfast. PBP Councillor Matt Collins commented:

“The case of Tony Taylor should be of concern to all progressives. Tony has been interned for over 700 days without any proper court hearing or due process. He is locked up at the say so of the Secretary of State. This is internment plain and simple.”

“The state should not be allowed to incarcerate people without a proper trial. Civil rights mean nothing unless they are civil rights for everyone, whatever their politics.”

“History is replete with examples of the disastrous effects of internment on communities here. I am calling on Secretary of State Karen Bradley to release Tony Taylor as a matter of urgency.”
