Anti Colonial Working Group condemns the shooting of Vinnie Ryan in Ireland. Our thoughts are with the Ryan family in this hard time as they suffer yet another tragedy at the hands of criminals while once again the police turns a blind eye. This shooting, like the murder of Alan Ryan his brother shows that collusion is alive and well not just in the occupied Six Counties, but also in the freestate. It is quite clear that Vinnie, like his Alan was targeted because of all the positive work that they have done for Irish Republicanism and their community. As such the media, the freestate police, and institutions have blood on their hands.
