Cork in support of Porturlin prisoners and Erris Community

category cork | rights, freedoms and repression | news report author Friday July 13, 2007 14:13author by Elinor - Cork shell to sea Report this post to the editors

This morning cork shell to sea members staged a promenade and vigil along the Quays and on the two main bridges in the city centre. The theme was grim, protesters wore black gowns, carried "deathly" Erris water bottles and regailed passers by with depressing stories of recent events in Erris.

Patricks Bridge

During this mornings rush hour cork shell to sea members who were unable to travel to Erris to offer solidarity at this mornings picket staged a vigil and grim promenade on the two main bridges in the city centre in Cork.
Taking advantage of the date friday the 13th and the fairly miserable weather the theme was bleak. Support was good plenty of horn honking and people stopping to show spport, ask questions and read the various leaflets. Black humour proved a usefull strategy for drawing peoples attention and putting a smile on a few wet workers faces !

Perhaps it should read 'Would you find me a job?'. I'm so pissed off with people who have enormous time and energy to do everything but work .

well done Cork S2S. You're a long way from the action but you know injustice when you see it.
Thank You.

we're in England for a couple months but would like to support S2S in their campaign against the rape of Erris. how can we send message of solidarity to the Porturlin Three?

As the Porturlin 3 are currently out on bail you can contact them care of Pat O Donnell, Porturlin, Ballina, Co. Mayo.
Future contact details will be posted on

I am sure that shell shocked will be reassured to learn that everyone on fridays action in Cork works at socially usefull and rewarding jobs aswell as all the unpaid hours they put in to create a better world for all of us.
