In Memoriam - Michael Holden
The RCG pays tribute to Michael Holden, who died recently while on holiday in Ireland. Michael was a lifelong Republican activist, who campaigned tirelessly for the freedom of Irish POWs and against the criminalisation of the struggle for Irish freedom. Our comrades have known and respected his contribution since the 1970s and 1980s, when he supported our publication Hands Off Ireland! and attended the founding conference of the Irish Solidarity Movement. A month before his death FRFI supporters stood with Michael and his wife Kathleen on a demonstration outside Downing Street, calling for freedom for imprisoned Republican Tony Taylor, organised by the Irish Republican Prisoners Support Group, of which Michael had been chair since its foundation in 2009. We send condolences to Kathleen and to all Michael’s friends and comrades.
