No-rent manifesto poster issued by the Irish National Land League signed off on by the imprisoned leaders of the Irish National Land League calling for a campaign of passive resistance by the entire population of small tenant farmers, by withholding rents in order to obtain large rent abatements under the second 1881 Irish Land Act. Small printed note [originally pasted to the verso of the frame this broadside was once in (now removed)] reads: "Some text missing. Examined by Mr. Murphy Q.C., desposed - from '78-'32, I have in the same neighbourhoodand the last witness. I visited this house immediately upon hearing the outrage. Prior to the attack, I found the following note posted in the neighbourhood - "No Rent by order of the executive, signed Charles Stewart Parnell, President, Kilmainham Gaol, A.J. Kettle, Honorary Secretary, Kilmainham Gaol, Michael Davitt, Honorary Secretary, Portland Prison, Thomas Brennan, Head organiser, Kilmainham Gaol, Thomas Sexton. Head organiser, Kilmainham Gaol, and Patrick Egan, Treasurer, Paris." I heard there were other notices posted in the neighbourhood but I only saw this one myself. The Court then adjourned."
