Easter Morn

The Treason Felony Blog

Jimmy Steele published a poem called Easter Morn in the Belfast republican newspaper,Resurgent Ulster in 1953. It issubtitled Belfast Prison 1944,meaning he must have written at the end of 40 days on hunger strike that year. In a debate in Stormont in May 1946, Cahir Healy described the condition of David Fleming after the forty days on hunger strike with Jimmy: “hunger strike left its trace upon both mind and body. He was a nervous wreck then.” The hunger strike had followed his escape (and recapture) in 1943, the 1943blanket protest and repeated violent attacks on republicans by the prison staff (and the dreadful conditions in the prison). Also, thedeath of Rocky Burns during an exchange of gunfire with the RUC in February 1944 (Rocky was O/C Belfast at the time), cast a considerable shadow over those of his friends inCrumlin Road prison.
