26 years after the death of Bobby Sands - what Belfast anarchists wrote

The WSM has recently added 6 PDF's of anarchist publications from Ireland or about Ireland of the period from 1970 to 1983 (WSM was founded 1984). Today we make available an article published by the Belfast anarchist paper Outta Control written at the start of the Hunger Strike.

A second Hunger Strike has begun, with Bobby Sands, who is serving 14 years for possession of a gun, refusing food on Sunday, March 1st. He will be joined later by others, including it is thought, 2 of the previous women hunger strikers from Armagh.
