Where is Liberty: The Prosecution of Irish Republicans in the United States is a 32 page booklet that outlines the personal background, location, etc., of more than two dozen Irish POWs being held in American prisons. The prisoners are held for offenses relating to immigration violations (i.e. fleeing British persecution and imprisonment), arms procurement and similar activities to support PIRA and INLA. Many of the prisoners had successfully escaped British prison camps and were living law abiding lives in the US when arrested by the US government. The plight of these prisoners has been all but ignored in the US. This excellent booklet gives a personal look at the prisoners, their lives, why they are imprisoned and the US government's open collusion with England to crush the Irish independence movement.
An upcoming issue of PLN will report on Saoirse, the international movement seeking the immediate, unconditional release of all Irish POWs and political prisoners. Anyone desiring a copy of this booklet or more information should contact: Saoirse, 1032 Irving St. Suite 722, San Francisco, CA 94122-2216. (510) 273-9833.
