Justice, Prisoners, Protests

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.
If you require further information regarding the rally please contact us at freemarianpricedublin@gmail.com or phone 085 7355217.
