ireland. lil piece of IRA history
Ο Bobby Sands και άλλοι 9 μαχητές του IRA χάσανε τη ζωή τους μετά από εξοντωτική απεργία πείνας το 1981, ενάντια στην οποία η Θάτσερ επέδειξε δολοφονική λύσσα. Αρνούμενη, παρά την παρέμβαση ακόμη και του Πάπα(!), να ικανοποιήσει τα αιτήματα των απεργών, τους οδήγησε στο θάνατο. Mηδενική ανοχή η σιδηρά κυρία. Tους καταδίκασε σε θάνατο.
