Merrion Road, Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.
Anti Imperialist Action writes:
To mark the 40th Anniversary of the launch of the 1980 Hunger strike, Anti Imperialist Action renamed Merrion Road in Dublin that houses the Brit Imperialist Embassy, as Bóthar Breandan MacAodha/ Brendan Hughes Road.
Road signs were erected to cover the current signs at the junction of the road that houses the Brit Embassy, at the Embassy itself and on the Bus Stops close by to honour the courage and sacrifice of the Republican Soliders in the H-Block who commenced a Hungerstrike Against British attempts to criminalise the Republican Struggle 40 years Ago this week.
Brendan Hughes the O/C of the Republican POWs and a deeply committed Socialist Republican led the strike against the Brits and it is fitting to rename the road that houses the epi-centre of Brit Imperialism in the Free State in honour of his heroic action and life long fight for Irish National Liberation and Socialist Revolution.
