The IRSP in Derry will be holding a wreath laying ceremony to remember INLA volunteer Colm McNutt who was assassinated by the SAS on 12th Dec 1977.
Colm was just eighteen years old when he was killed in the William Street area of his native Derry by undercover agents of the British state. As a politically aware youth growing up in Derry he witnessed at first hand the brutality of the British Imperialist stranglehold on his country and it was as a result of the occupation that Colm took up arms, not only to defend his city from the British but to fight for a workers’ republic that would indeed cherish all the children of the nation equally. Colm paid the ultimate price in his fight for National Liberation and Socialism.
The wreath laying will be held at the Republican Socialist monument at the corner of William Street and Rossville Street at 2.30pm on Sunday 9th December.
