Smashing H-Block
Liverpool University Press

This chapter focuses on the creation of the National H-Block Committee in 1980. It describes the anti-H-Block march organised by the committee from Belfast to Long Kesh, the location of the Prison Maze in Northern Ireland and the speaking engagement of its chairman Piaras O'Duill at the annual Irish Northern Aid Testimonial in New York. It suggests that through the H-Block campaign they were reaching a wider audience, the situation of the prisoners still reflects the powerlessness characteristic of the movement.
