    Default Petition launched for Sean Garland's release

    An appeal from Tomás Mac Giolla, former Lord Mayor of Dublin

    Former Lord Mayor of Dublin and member of the Irish Parliament (Dáil Éireann), Tomás MacGiolla, has launched the following Petition calling for the withdrawal on humanitarian grounds of the United States' demand for the extradition from Ireland to the US of Sean Garland:-

    I / We call on the Irish government to support a call for the withdrawal of the extradition warrant issued by the United States authorities against Sean Garland, former President of the Workers’ Party of Ireland.

    Sean Garland is 75 years old and is in poor health. This extradition request is nothing more than a vindictive act signed by Condoleezza Rice of the outgoing discredited Bush / Cheney regime.

    Nothing other than the continued persecution of Sean Garland will be served by this request.

    Will Eoghan Harris be signing the petition given that he defended Garland last week.

    Sean Garland is an Irish and working class hero.

    How come there was never any pressure on the Stickies to decommision?
    I remember an Irish News story a few years ago that claimed that they received a container load of gear from Eastern Europe in the mid-to-late 70s.
    The Stickies are an organised crime gang even though the most high profile all jumped ship when the brief fallout of the discovery of a couple of Stickie arms dumps spawned Democratic Left.
    Said Teflons have since polluted the Labour Party and the thoughts of them getting anywhere near power are rather disturbing.

    He's someone who admires North Korea and the former Soviet Union, and of course not forgetting Cuba. Bye, bye stickie.

    No that was Seamus Costello, murdered by Garland's reactionary, gangster, collaborator-bastard pals in the OIRA.

    Better than any backwards sectarian provos. Now go off and rattle your beads, burn down some protestant houses, grin and shake Paisley's hand and then confess it all to your beloved priest. Scummy provo

    Well perhaps hero is too strong a word but he certainly was a working class representative. The fued in the 70s was a terrible bit of business alright. Real waste of good talented people.

    I'm no admirer of the treachery of the provos, but how can they be both 'backwards sectarian' and shake Paisley's hand at the same time?

    Because they are hypocrites who will do anything to get into power. McGuiness is a sectarian politician but he will happily have a fake laugh and smile with Paisley if it means power.
