As many as 27,000 North Korean prisoners have disappeared from Camp 22, one of North Korea’s notoriously brutal labor camps. According to the director of the Committee for Human Rights in North Korea, Camp 22, which is the size of London and at one time held 50,000 prisoners, recently moved several thousand prisoners to other camps. This leaves approximately 27,000 unaccounted for and feared dead from starvation. This information comes from former prisoners, former guards, and satellite photos.
A march and rally will be held on Saturday, the 3rd of November, to call for the immediate release of Marian Price. The Free Marian Price Dublin campaign would like to invite you to attend this rally and to add your voice to the thousands of other voices calling for her freedom. We would be very grateful if you would pass this information about the rally on to your friends, your comrades, your family and your colleagues to ensure that there’s a great crowd on the steets on the day. Marian’s case is a human rights issue and with your support and presence at the rally, we will be able to send a strong message to the British secretary of state.
Human Rights activist Monsignor Raymond Murray and Clare Daly TD will be speakers at the rally.
The Free Marian Price Campaign is a non-party political campaign and the campaign group asks every political party not to bring political material on the day. Placards, banners and posters will be provided.

Clare Daly TD Condemns Delay in Publication of Prison Report
The Inspector of prisons Judge Michael Reilly submitted a damning report on the treatment of young prisoners at St Patrick’s Institution for young offenders. This report was submitted to the Minister for Justice three and a half months ago. The report published yesterday has been described by the Minister as shocking. It can hardly still be shocking over three months later.
