Chris has rightly pointed out the 25th Anniversary of what Intelligence Insider has described as Bobby Sands’ suicide.
The other side of this story though are those who are at this time challenging the republican narrative of the hunger strikes. Whilst republicans use their British rights of expression and free speech to celebrate the deaths of ten prisoners, we should not forget that they were not incarcerated for their political beliefs but murder, conspiracy to murder and other such crimes.
