  1. 40 years ago, the 1981 Hunger strikes ended. I did not understand, then, the sad and tragic results when politics and religion are NOT kept separate. I started studying after that and was Baptized in 1987. I am glad to be neutral and no part of the world .Instead, I am part of a Worldwide loving brotherhood.

      The origins of the strike lay in the British Government's withdrawal of Special Category Status for paramilitary prisoners in 1976.

      After that, anyone imprisoned for Troubles-related offences would be treated as criminals and not political prisoners.

      This meant having to wear a prison uniform, something Republican prisoners opposed.

      The brother giving Sunday's public talk mentioned hunger strikes along with a list of world problems and their reactions. It made me look up some info on this tragic set of affairs.

      Since I am home recovering from bronchitis, I looked up some documentary info. A couple of commenters, who were active during protests said it was pride that made people unwilling to negotiate, Also they featured the fact that protests of all sorts can lead to violence. I am so glad we have Jehovah's instructions and do not have to learn everything by trial and error.
