Info Picket and Banner Drop today at Kitchener Farmers Market raise awareness of the plight of Tony Taylor

14632827_10157641257345611_5422958018409890893_nToday members of Anti Colonial Working Group held an info picket outside of the Farmers Market demanding the release of Irish Republican prisoner Tony Taylor. Taylor has been held for over 200 days without charge or trial in Maghaberry for what amounts to a blatant violation of his basic rights simply because of his politics.

We handed out over 400 leaflets and the reception was quite good. Seeing this we went inside the farmers market dropped a banner stating “Free Tony Taylor” and gave a impromptu speech that was heard by everyone there demanding that Tony Taylor be freed and that internment be stopped. When security removed us we got a standing ovation. As we were leaving we saw many people approach security and ask them about Tony Taylor and they had to explain who Tony Taylor was to people. (to be fair they actually did not do too bad a job they said a Irish person imprisoned by the British for his politics).

Next week Anti Colonial Working Group will be joining the 32CSM on a panel that includes the Venezuelan Consulate and other representatives of the ALBA to discuss the case of Tony Taylor and the Craigavon Two. We look forward to this as well as discussions with our comrades from Argentina about the illegal occupation of the Malvinas Islands

    I’m sure people at the market have no idea who this criminal Tony Taylor is and could care less whether or not he is in jail.You people really should find better things to do with all your free time….like getting jobs maybe???
