“Throughout Britain's colonial history, in Kenya, Yemen, Malaya and elsewhere, London broke all accepted moral and legal standards by torturing its opponents. Ireland was no different with British 'water-boarding' detainee thirty years before the USA did the same in Guantanamo. Using statements made by people who were themselves tortured, and declassified official documents, the PFC exposes the continuum of brutality from Kenya, Cyprus through to Ireland.”
Statements read by Seamas Heaney, Pat Lynch & Joanne Duddy.
