Derry 32CSM Statement in Solidarity with Protest against RUC/PSNI intimidation!!!!

32csm solidarity with Creggan residents

Derry 32CSM wish to thank the residents of the Creggan area for their courage and fortitude of the past few days. On Monday night a protest to highlight the ongoing harassment of the Creggan residents by the unreformed RUC/PSNI forced the route of the olympic torch to change. This was presented by many media outlets as a “dissident” protest disrupting the olympics. In fact it was a protest by people who have now been forced to endure successive nights of house raids and intimidation by the PSNI. During these raids people have had their community flooded with heavily armed British police who have assaulted residents and traumatised children. The focus for the media should not be a disruption of a few minutes to the route of the olympic torch but to the daily disruption the residents of the Creggan area are forced to endure at the hands of the PSNI. The 32CSM will continue to stand by our communities against this thuggery by a colonial police force.
