    Nice tribute from the GB.

    My mum is South African and my grandparents were both involved in anti-apartheid activism. Bobby Sands is held in very high regard over there. There's always been a great affinity between the anti-apartheid movement in South Africa and the republican struggle in Ireland.

    Brave young men who stood against a tyrant, refused to give in and paid the ultimate sacrifice.


    Superb video by the GB :shamrock:

    That’s brilliant. Love hearing about affinity between republicanism and other common struggles across the world. There’s a street named after sands in Iran.

    Heartbreaking that it wasn't enough to save his life. Visited his grave in 2014 was surreal. I've always admired and been fascinated by the 1981 hunger strikers but now that im a similar age to them it feels even more sad.
