BUSH places Irish groups on terrorist list/FBIbritish infiltrates US group

FBI and British agent provocateur disrupts US Irish groups.

Story: BUSH ADMINISTRATION PLACES TWO IRISH GROUPS ON STATE DEPARTMENT TERRORIST LIST; THE GROUPS ARE LEGAL IN ENGLAND AND IRELAND; THE FBI INFORMER WHOM GROUP MEMBERS SAY WAS A PROVOCATEUR IS NOW IN WITNESS PROTECTION

The leader of Northern Ireland's power-sharing government, David Trimble, was reelected as chief of his divided Ulster Unionist Party on Saturday on the strength of his demand for immediate Irish Republican Army disarmament.

Trimble has threatened to resign as first minister July 1 and to bring the Protestant-Roman Catholic government to a standstill unless the IRA begins to give up its stockpiled weapons under the 1998 Good Friday peace agreement--an ultimatum the IRA's political allies in the Sinn Fein party have rejected.

Sinn Fein's Martin McGuinness, who serves as education minister in the provincial government, said, "It's a bit rich for people to be focusing on guns that have been silent for the last seven years when we are witnessing attacks by people who are heart-set on destroying the Good Friday agreement."

The political crisis follows several days of sectarian street violence in the north of the provincial capital, Belfast, in which Catholic children had to be escorted to school through a Protestant area, and pipe bombs and gunshots were traded.

The British government announced Friday that it plans to send an additional 1,600 troops to Northern Ireland; the government also said it has borrowed two water cannons from Belgium.

Meanwhile, activists in the United States are fighting the Bush administration's decision to outlaw any support in the US for the families of Irish political prisoners. Last month the state department barred fundraising for the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association and the 32 County Sovereignty Committee, both of which are legal in Britain and Ireland.

Guests:

John Mcdonagh, with the Irish Freedom Committee and producer of Radio Free Erieann on WBAI.

Lynn Bernabei, attorney with Bernabei and Katz.

Rory Duggan, treasurer of the Irish Republican Prisoners Welfare Association.
