Martin Ferris, a TD (MP) from Irish republican party Sinn Féin, is touring Australia speaking on the ongoing struggle for Irish reunification and independence. Ferris will speak on the challenge of the ongoing peace process and will outline the economic crisis unfolding across Ireland, including the mass opposition to the government’s austerity measures and the IMF/EU ‘bailout’. He will also discuss the legacy of the 1981 hunger strike in which 10 Irish republican prisoners died in the protest for political status in Long Kesh prison.
