This document issued during the 1980 Hunger Strikes includes messages from John Nixon, an history of hunger strikes and an outline of the response to the then current one.
The letter from Nixon is of particular interest outlining his involvement in the early stages of the conflict and his eventual move to the IRSP.
Other aspects of interest include a timeline under ‘Mass Resistance’ which details activities in October and November of that year in support of the hunger strikes.
