This publication is a unique addition to the Archive. As the preface notes:
The Captive Voice/An Glór Gafa is a quarterly magazine written in its entirety by Irish Republican POWs currently being held in Ireland, England, Europe and the US. It is publish by Sinn Féin’s POW Department. Irish republicans have always recognised that resistance to British misrule does not end upon their arrest. The battles to be fought and the tactics to be employed may change but the enemy remains the same.
Unsurprisingly given this is a Winter edition there is a strong focus on Christmas and prisoners. There is also a concentration on issues of interest to prisoners – extradition, and so forth. And mention is made of Antonio Gramsci and his Prison Notebooks in relation the ‘politics of cultural struggle’. There’s also an article with the accounts of Basque political prisoners.
