Tony Taylor issues direct appeal to Derry public two years after his return to jail

Tony Taylor last night issued a statement from Maghaberry to mark the second anniversary of his return to jail.

In it, Mr Taylor called on the public to attend a short march from Derry Courthouse to Guildhall Square at lunchtime this Saturday, March 10, to highlight his case.

The statement reads:

It is now approaching 47 years since the British government enacted the Special Powers Act and began the process of internment without trial.

Then like today, people from right across the city and six counties were dragged from their families imprisoned indefinitely without due process.

Unfortunately, contrary to what the British Government, its forces and its media outlets would have you believe internment without trial is alive and well in Ireland today.

Almost two years to the day I was dragged from our family car in front of my wife and children detained and imprisoned in Maghaberry Jail where I have been ever since.

I have not been afforded a trial and remain imprisoned upon the word and secret evidence of the British State intelligence agency MI5.

As we approach the 47th anniversary of the introduction of interment in 1971, it is telling, is it not, that the British government is still employing such draconian legislation to imprison those in political opposition.

As a consequence, and as a victim of such action, I once again need and ask for your attendance this Saturday evening March 10 at a rally organised calling for my immediate release. Gathering outside Derry Court House at 2pm, ending in short walk to Guildhall Square.

In finishing, I would like to emphasise that it is vital that we get as many people as possible to attend this event and the many others organised right across Ireland and further afield. Therefore, I call on all to make every effort to mark this event because without you and your voice me and my family would be very much alone in this fight for justice.

So once again thank you to each and every one of you for your continued support, myself and my family will be forever grateful.

Tony Taylor
