West Tyrone Ógra Shinn Féin organised a tour of Long Kesh Concentration Camp, last Friday 29th September. The tour was very emotive as the delegation visited the hospital wing where 10 Irish Republican Prisoners bravely give their life on Hungerstrike 25 years ago.

The Cages, and H4 were also visited.

All together 16 Young Republican activists attended the tour and witnessed at first hand Long Kesh, the site of so much tragedy and torture, yet also massive resilience and struggle.

We salute the Prisoners, the Blanketmen and the Hungerstrikers! read full story / add a comment

On Saturday 27th May, Ogra Shinn Fein in strabane held a "Smash Political Policing" protest at railway street in the town. The protest was in response to the recent harassment of young Republicans in west Tyrone by the RUC/PSNI. During the protest, a number of Ogra Shinn Fein activists occupied the rooftop of the library and dropped a banner reading "Smash Political Policing Now". The protestors sounded airhorns and whistles to get the public's attention, while activists on the ground distributed information leaflets on political policing. While returning from the protest one young activist was approached and grabbed by a member of the RUC/PSNI, though when confronted by another group of protestors the harassment ceased.

In an unheard unity of opinion the UUP, SDLP and Sinn Féin sang from the same hymn sheet at a debate by their youth wings in Omagh. The only thing, however, they agreed upon was that the Socialist Youth – which had branded them as sectarian parties – was talking rubbish.

The debate took place at the training room of Omagh District Council on Tuesday Night and a panel of some 11 members drawn from the UUP, Ógra Shinn Féin, SDLP and Socialist Youth debated various issues. The DUP declined to send a team.
