Please join us to commemorate the life of Bobby Sands and to celebrate the release of a new selection of his prison writing: Our Only Weapon Our Spirit.

To remember his sacrifice and honor his struggle, we are releasing this new edition of his prison writing.

Our Only Weapon ...Our Spirit Selected Prison Writings of Bobby Sands

edited by Samuel Conway and Patrick Stanley

From the Back Cover:

After sixty-six days on hunger strike, Bobby Sands was legally killed by British intransigence. He died resisting the claim that eight-hundred years of Irish rebel history had been purely illegitimate and criminal. He had been a volunteer of the Irish Republican Army, an Irish speaker, elected Member of Parliament and writer.

Thirty years later, his legacy as a cultural figure, freedom fighter and writer continues to resonate with people struggling for freedom throughout the world.

This new selection of his prison writing commemorates his life and his legacy. We hope this book contributes to his vision of a just, united and free Ireland, and helps to sustain the liberation struggles of people world-wide.

All proceeds from the sale of this book go to the benefit of the wives, families and dependents of prisoners through the Bobby Sands Trust.
