Left Archive: Documents in the Archive relating to the Hunger Strikes August 8, 2016

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

On this, the 35th anniversary of the Hunger Strikes in H-Blocks it seems appropriate to look at the range of materials relating to them in the Left Archive.

From IRSP Hunger Strike Bulletin’s that encompass the years 1980 to 1981, to Revolutionary Struggle publications that reflect on the strikes, and on to the analyses of the events from a range of viewpoints including the League for the Workers Republic, the Patsy O’Hara Youth Movement, People’s Democracy, Sinn Féin the Workers’ Party and the Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist Leninist).

Interestingly the Archive has no documents from Sinn Féin that examine the hunger strikes at the time. Any materials of this nature that are available would be very welcome.
