This document was issued by Drumcondra/Whitehall Action Group, a section of the Armagh/H-Block Action Group, associated with the Communist Party of Ireland (Marxist-Leninist). The publications of the Action Group were often included in CPI (M-L) publications.
The document leads with an article publicising a ‘Successful Cross-Board March’.
The Cross-Border Action Day, organised by Armagh, Louth and Monaghan Action Committees, proved to be a success last Sunday Augsut 20th. Between 8,000 and 10,000 people marched into the square at Crossmaglen. Marchers coming from three points on the Souther side of the border met up with the people of the six counties in the village square.
Other pieces include articles in Irish, another on Section 31 Censorship (asserting that the ‘Government is coming under increasing pressure to abolish Section 31 of the Broadcasting Authority Act’), ‘Police Harassment’, ‘Hunger Strike News’ and a note about how:
