I am overwhelmed with your support and amazed with your energy, it is hard work when the State incarcerates women who are doing the work that the Irish State should be doing. Protecting our neutrality, bringing justice, affirming its devotion to the ideal of peace and friendly co-operation amongst nations founded on International justice and morality. In other words your succinct slogan Caring not killing.
We are delighted and honoured to announce that LINTON KWESI JOHNSON, world-renowned reggae poet and recording artist, will read some of his poems at the GIG. For more info about his creative work visit: http://www.lintonkwesijohnson.com/
Peter Hallward, author of Damning the Flood, Caribbean Labour Solidarity, the George Padmore Institute and New Beacon Books have endorsed the event. Please tweet, like, email … and most importantly join us on the day.
Advance tickets here.
