IRWG STATEMENT ON CONTINUED INTIMIDATION
The IRWG condemn the continued harassment and attempted intimidation of its members.
Last evening, Wednesday 2 November, a group of more than 30 picketers, led by local Sinn Fein activists, again picketed the home of Anthony McIntyre and Carrie Twomey.
Carrie Twomey, six months pregnant, and one of Anthony McIntyre's children were alone in the house at the time.
The IRWG call for constructive and widespread dialogue to begin immediately that will ensure internecine bloodletting does not occur and will put a halt to the intimidation and tension within the Republican community.
We again reiterate our call for a community inquiry into the murder of Joseph O Connor, and ask for support from all who value freedom of speech.
