5 maggio 1981 – 5 maggio 2010. 27 anni, 66 giorni di sciopero della fame, 5 richieste mai accettate, 29 anni fa, 9 giovani repubblicani morti dopo di lui. Ricordiamo Bobby Sands, con alcune sue citazioni e alcune magniloquenti fotografie d’epoca.
“Everyone, Republican or otherwise, has their own particular part to play. No part is too great or too small; no one is too old or too young to do something.”
“Our revenge will be the laughter of our children.”
“They won’t break me because the desire for freedom, and the freedom of the Irish people, is in my heart. The day will dawn when all the people of Ireland will have the desire for freedom to show. It is then that we will see the rising of the moon.”
“They have nothing in their whole imperial arsenal that can break the spirit of one Irishman who doesn’t want to be broken.”
