Demonstration Against the U.S. Death Penalty in Dublin,
Ireland on July 4th 1997
Over 50 people gathered at the US embassy to protest against the
death penalty in the US and to highlight the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal.
For over an hour we chanted slogans, passed out leaflets and listened
to talks about the how the death penalty is racially driven in the
US; and how the US state has never had a problem with framing and/or
executing dissidents (like Joe Hill, Sacco & Vanzetti, Black
Panthers, American Indian Movement members).
Organised by the anarchist Workers Solidarity Movement, the
protest was also supported by members of the Anti-Racist Campaign and
the Socialist Party. Media coverage included several mentions on
national radio news and a short piece in the Irish Times (second
biggest daily newspaper)
