Irish Freedom Committee to oppose Black Watch in Boston

Irish Freedom Committee

The Boston Cumann of the Irish Freedom Committee will confront the appearance of the murderous Black Watch Regiment and Welsh Guards with pickets this Sunday, January 29th, at the Fleet Center in Boston.

The Irish Freedom Committee consider this appearance, timed one day before from the 34th Anniversary of the Bloody Sunday massacre in Derry, as an outright offense to the Irish American community and to all who support peace with justice in Ireland.

The record of the Black Watch in Ireland is one of bloody enforcement of British military rule in Ireland. The Black Watch Regiment of the British Army did eleven tours of duty in the Occupied North of Ireland, during which time their soldiers murdered twelve innocent civilians, including a Polish journalist whose body was brutally mutilated by soldiers. The history of the Black Watch includes decoration for combat against American citizens during the Revolution for United States Independence.

The Welsh Guards, touring with the Black Watch, are an armed infantry who have carried out five six-month and one two-year operational tours in Northern Ireland. The Welsh Guards serve as sentries to the Queen of England at Buckingham Palace.

PICKET THE BLACK WATCH IN BOSTON

The murderous Black Watch regiment will perform in Boston one day before the Anniversary of the Bloody Sunday massacre in Derry. This appearance is a slap in the face to Irish America and to all who support peace with justice in Ireland. Please join the Boston Cumann of the Irish Freedom Committee in protesting this offensive event!!
