A British Diplock Court in Ireland has found Gerry Mc Geough guilty. Mr Mc Geough had his bail revoked and was taken from his wife and children and is now in Maghaberry Prison awaiting sentence. Please keep him in your prayers and speak out against this British injustice.
Write to Gerry and express your SOLIDARITY with him...
Flood him with cards/letters.

British Government and PSF collusion to silence McGeough
The politically motivated arrest and now conviction of Gerry McGeough was a set up as soon as Gerry challenged PSF in the 2007 elections on an anti-psni platform at the time Adams/McGuinness were telling everyone to 'cooperate' with them. It's more than a sell out, it's treason. They worked hand and hand with the Brits to silence McGeough.
The only way to pay PSF back is at ELECTION TME and I would expect that anyone who is against injustice will give PSF the shaft they deserve when that time comes.
I can't begin to explain the sadness and disgust I feel at this time. If all these Irish republican groups, here and abroad, would put their egos in check - there is still work to be done on behalf of McGeough and all other Irish political prisoners.
In the USA, Gerry would be entitled to an appeal. I'm in the process of contacting his attorney to see what can be done.
Please continue to monitor the freegerry.com web site for updates and action items. An injustice of this kind (being sold out by his own comrades) should only serve to bring about a more united front against PSF, as they have proven to be the cunning cowards they are by their blatant silence with regard to his arrest and trial these past 4 years, not to mention their obvious absence from the diplock court today when Gerry's verdict was handed down.
I realize there are a number of people who do not share Gerry’s religious or political beliefs and that’s fine. However, they should not allow that to get in the way of them standing up to injustice, regardless of who the person is or what they believe. I have not been a PSF supporter since the signing of the GFA, but I didn’t let McAnespie hang out to dry in the last 4 years because he is a shinner.

MCGOUGH FOUND GUILTY - MCANESPIE WALKS
Gerry was found guilty on all counts and had his bail revoked and was dragged out of the court. McAnespie was found not guilty and walked. Pictures will follow tomorrow from the court.
STATEMENT BY GERRY MCGEOUGH ON EVE OF VERDICT
On the cusp of this so-called "verdict", I would like to take the opportunity of thanking all those who have stood loyally by us throughout the ordeal of these last four years.
In particular, I would like to mention Helen McClafferty, Martin Galvin, John McDonagh, Sandy Boyer and Pam Somers to name but a few of our many good friends in the United States. Among those who have stood fearlessly with us in Ireland are our friends and neighbours in the Justice for the McGeough Family Pressure Group. To all of you, and countless others, we owe a debt of gratitude.
By now, most people are aware of my position on this "legal" saga that we have endured ever since my arrest following the 2007 Assembly Elections here in the Six-Counties.
The whole thing is one massive charade, a total and utter contemptible sham. It has been a pathetic attempt by the British to intimidate and silence me; and it has failed miserably. I am not frightened by the British. I shall never be intimidated by them and even if they throw me in their jails others will speak out on my behalf. The voice of Irish Freedom and Independence will never be silenced. Our enemies have failed in their objective, regardless of the outcome of their little "verdict".
The British have no right to "rule" in any part of Ireland. Their presence in my country is illegal and immoral and it is imperative that they leave our shores immediately and forever.
I urge people not to be despondent if things go against me. Rather, avail of the opportunity to expose the cruel and vindictive nature of the British State in Ireland by organising an International Campaign to highlight the injustice of this persecution. Tyranny must not be allowed the last word.
Finally, for now, I thank you all for your prayers and good wishes. Always keep in mind the fact that no Englishman has the right to pass judgement upon any Irish Patriot on Irish soil, and by the Grace of God our Nation, and we its people, will one day soon witness an end to this evil foreign dominance of our country. May God Bless you all and Long Live the Irish Nation and its people, both at home and amongst our Diaspora. Éirinn go Brách!
