RFE Looks at Christy Walsh and Michael Burns

Sandy Boyer outlining what is on today's Radio Free Eireann show.

On Saturday April 4 starting at 12 Noon New York time Radio Free Eireann will cover the cases of Christy Walsh and Michael Burns. 

Christy Walsh is on hunger strike to clear his name after being framed by the Parachute Regiment and imprisoned for 7 years. He has emailed First Minister Peter Robinson and his Deputy Martin McGuinness every day but never received an answer. 

Michael Burns has only days or weeks to live but the British government is trying to send him to prison for something that happened in 1977. He got a government letter saying he was safe from prosecution but the Director of Public Prosecutions now claims it was all a mistake.

Radio Free Eireann is heard on WBAI 99.5FM and where each show is archived.
