Hunger Strike Exhibition stalled
It is believed that the group was hoping to hold an exhibition to mark the event when IRA prisoners went on hunger strike in protest against the British government, who had removed special status from paramilitary prisoners in Northern Ireland. A similar exhibition on 'Collusion' was organised by Sinn Fein last year. It took place in the Students' Union and angered many unionist students.
Bobby Sands was the first of ten republican prisoners to die and two weeks ago Denis O'Hearn, a Professor of Sociology at Queen's University, launched a book about Mr Sands at St Mary's College.
