On behalf of the Irish Republican Socialist Party, may I send
greetings, support, and solidarity to the hunger strikers in Chile in
the protest against the cover up of the bloody crimes of the Pinochet

In 1981 three of our own comrades, Patsy O'Hara, Kevin Lynch, and
Mickey Devine, all Irish National Liberation Army volunteers along
with seven comrades from the Irish Republican Army, died on hunger
strike in the struggle for the recognition of the political nature of
the struggle against British imperialism.

We know the courage required to embark on the hunger strike, we know
the fortitude required to see it through to the end, and we share the
burning sense of injustice that sparks a hunger strike.

We know that you have struggled long years for justice. We salute
your valour, courage, determination, and thirst for justice.
