Expose the hypocrisy of the 1916 Commemorations!

On April 16th the Irish state is conducting a military style parade of its forces through Dublin city centre in commemoration of the 1916 insurrection and those who lost their lives in it.
Approximately 2,500 personnel representing all branches of the Defence Forces together
with representatives of ex-service personnel and veterans of UN service will be included
as will a large number of the Garda Síochána,
This celebration of resistance to British Imperialism is being funded by the Irish taxpayers, t
he same people who are paying for the murderous forces of the U.S military to use Baldonnel
and Shannon airports for the purposes of war.and imperialist domination in the Middle East.

Baldonnel,straight ahead
Baldonnel,straight ahead

The hypocrisy is glaring.As death and carnage spread through Iraq and as the death toll rises incessantly ,the Irish state stands guilty of complicity in this abhorrent slaughter through our facilitation of the U.S war machine.

There have been international reports which state that prisoners have been illegally transported to the Guantanamo Bay base and other black spots across the world for interrogation and torture at the hands of U.S democracy.. Many may have passed through Shannon or Baldonnell, making Ireland a party to a breach of international law.
We cannot stand idly by as this unfolds daily right in front of us, action must be continued and the cowardly Irish government must be shown up to have the blood of thousands of innocents on their hands.

------PROTEST AT BALDONNEL SUNDAY 16TH APRIL@3PM------
There will be a Anti-War Critical Mass from Heuston Station
at 1pm,bicycle a must!
Grassroots Dissent is calling on all anti-war groups and individuals to join in the protest at Baldonnel.
We must fight this injustice and for peace together.
The State’s hypocrisy while they laud the anti-impoerialism of the past must be highlighted and our complicity in the war must be stopped!.

your parade is proving nothing if you say your anti-imperilism then you should be celebrating the 90th aniversary of the actions of oghlaigh na heireann not highlighting something as insignificant as planes stopping to ru-fuel. you should show your sence of duty to your country and support the irish troops who only attempt to defend their nation and help in peace keeping missions through out the world

Since when is Iraq a "peace keeping mission", and since when does allowing US planes to stop over in Shanon constitute helping Irish soldiers to defend their country ?

imageA Brief Introduction to Modern Day Irish Republicanism. What Can Anarchists learn from Modern Day Re... Sep 29 by Joe Conlon 0 comments

Anarchists can learn a great deal from Republicanism, to make inroads to establishing our ideal in working class communities. We need to create a visible presence in all communities, we need to be seen to be believed. People are looking for answers and are falsely thinking it lies in Republicanism. Within Republicanism lies much of the same which lies in bourgeois society – that is hierarchy and privilege for the few. But I believe the secret to the salvation of society also lies within Republicanism. That is the revolutionary tradition of revolting against oppression, tyranny, and exploitation; which the working class, the oppressed and angry, gravitate towards. And likewise I think Republicans can learn a great deal from anarchism. Maybe from working together on community or workplace struggles we could both learn from each other.
