Description
Steve Sailah interviews Sinn Fein Vice-President, Maire Drumm on her release from prison. Drumm tells how and why she refused bail; how she had been kept in solitary confinement for 7 days; and how the Republican prisoners are continuing to fight for political status. She condemns the British Government as the invaders and aggressors, calls the Irish Government a puppet government, and dismisses Prime Minister Liam Cosgrave as the son of the man who originally sold out (i.e. W. T. Cosgrave).
