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.
