Protest in Omagh town centre Ógra members held posters and a banner demanding an end to the repression in the Basque country and in particular against Segi. Hundreds of leaflets were also distributed.
Speaking from the protest West Tyrone Ógra spokesperson Stephen McGahan said
“We condemn unreservedly the arrest of over 30 pro independence youth activists in the Basque country. The arrest and imprisonment of youth activist who work for independence in the Basque country is wrong and unjust“Such arrests took place against the backdrop of an initiative by the pro independence movement to initiate a democratic process. These arrests go against the very spirit of any such democratic process.
“As we gather in Omagh many more actions are taking place throughout Ireland and abroad in solidarity with the youth movement in the Basque country. On behalf of Ógra I want to again pledge our ongoing support to Segi and condemn these further acts of repression against the Basque youth movement. We once again call for the release of the youth activists and will be highlighting these injustices in the coming days and weeks.
