Not long ago we have posted levels of inmates in Dochas Centre prison in Dublin. We wrote, that Martha has the highest level.
Our sites are observed by prison officers.
Someone suddenly decided to change Martha’s level and further to humiliate Martha, her family and friends.
Today, when Martha checked booking of her sister’s visits, she learned, that her level was lowered from Enhance to Standard.
No reasons were given and Martha was not informed about this.
Nothing was happening, Martha didn’t do anything wrong.
The lowering of level was supposedly because Martha went to the yard in shower slippers. Martha doeasn’t recall anything like that happening.
Degradation of Martha’s level would have it’s impact on all the privileges: lowering payments by €4 a week, but more important are the other things – only one, half an hour visit, and only one phone call daily.
Is this a continuation of Martha, her family and friends being humiliated?
Is this a way of showing, that if Poles will not keep in line, if they will write different sorts of things in the internet, then we, the Irish, will find a way to further discomfort Martha?
Martha’s case causes deep concern in Poland. In the opinion of majority of people in Poland, Martha suffers a glaring injustice.
The Irish society is more divided in their opinions.
One-sided presentation of Martha’s case by the media for the last few years did it’s job.
What’s worse, every action against Martha, even those inhumane, seem to be accepted by Irish society.
Because for them, Martha is a Killer, an Ice Queen Killer.
Recently we have learned, that Mrs Viceconsul wasn’t permitted into the prison, because she didn’t booked herself somewhere. She came specially to the prison, but she wasn’t let in to meet Martha. She came to intervene at the request of Polish citizen.
After publicizing Martha’s case, we have received signals from Poles in Ireland, about the will to organize a demonstration in Martha’s case. We’ve tried to calm, ease emotions.
There are situations, when we start doubting the reason of calm waiting for Justice, Mind and Humanity in Ireland.
But what can we do?
Until medicine will find a cure for Stupidity, Callousness and Stubbornness, we will still try to remain the same:
to value Good, to Stigmatize Injustice.
Martha, remain yourself, even if others more and more debase themselves.
