Radio Free Eireann Broadcasting 10 June 2017

Martin Galvin announces the return to the airwaves of Radio Free Eireann.

Radio Free Eireann returns this Saturday June 10th on WBAI 99.5 FM radio or wbai.org at 12noon New York time or 5 pm-6pm Irish time. Or listen any time after the broadcast on wbai.org/archives.

We will feature up to the minute analysis of the Westminster Election where British Prime Minister Theresa May's snap election gambit for an increased majority has boomeranged and cost her the party's majority while in the six counties the DUP hope to align with May as kingmakers and both the Ulster Unionist Party and Social Democratic and Labour Party were shut out.

Kate Nash of the Bloody Sunday Justice March committee will talk about community anger at the Free Derry Museum's decision to memorialize the names of British crown forces up alongside their victims and protests demanding return of items including artwork which had been donated by our one time co-host Brian Mor.

Co-hosts John McDonagh and Martin Galvin will report on their recent news-making visits to Ireland, including Martin's speech in Derry at the unveiling of a mural for slain IRA Volunteer George McBrearty, joining Gerry McGeough for a protest by the Molly Maguire AOH Division against environmental and cultural destruction by a Canadian gold-mining company in the beautiful Sperrins Mountains, and John's receipt of a major award in Dublin.
