Letter from Mairead Maguire, Nobel Peace Laureate to the Global Women's Strike in support of Margaretta D'Arcy

 I am sorry I cannot be with you at this important action in support of our dear and courageous Margaretta D’Arcy, but I will be with you all in spirit.

Margaretta is an inspiration to us all and we are deeply grateful to her for her great Witness and reminder to us all of our responsibility to call Governments to uphold human rights and International laws, and the Irish Government to uphold its constitution and protect its neutrality.

Dear Women,

I am overwhelmed with your support and amazed with your energy, it is hard work when the State incarcerates women who are doing the work that the Irish State should be doing. Protecting our neutrality, bringing justice, affirming its devotion to the ideal of peace and friendly co-operation amongst nations founded on International justice and morality. In other words your succinct slogan Caring not killing.
