Force Feeding is Torture

Description:

This poster is one of a series produced by supporters of eight republicans convicted of exploding car bombs in London in March 1973. The ten week long trial at Winchester High Court saw strict security precautions. After being sentenced the republicans almost immediately began a hunger strike demanding to be moved to jails in Ireland. They were eventually transferred in 1975. White text on a red background, banner style.
