  2. On Monday the 28th of January at 7pm on O'Connell bridge in Dublin, Republican comrades of Doloures Price will be holding a candlelit black flag vigil in remembrance of Doloures who recently passed, and to commemorate her inspiring legacy. The vigil is set to coincide with Doloures's funeral taking place on the same day in her native Belfast, it is only right that republicans in Dublin were she resided up until her passing, do their part to pay tribute to a woman who gave her utmost to the cause of Irish Freedom. The vigil will also be carried out in solidarity with Doloures's sister Marian, who is being forced to grieve Doloures passing behind British prison walls, denied the right to her freedom, not even to bury her beloved sister. So please be present on O'Connell Bridge on Monday evening to give an hour of your time to remember this gallant lady. Black flags to be provided but if you wish to bring your own candles and black flags it would be a big help. See you all there Beannacht

  5. SINN FÉIN’S MARTIN McGuinness has today been appointed the Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead by the British Chancellor following his resignation as a Westminster MP. An ancient British law requires MPs who wish to resign their seat during the lifetime of a parliament to apply for paid offices of the British Crown. McGuinness, the North’s deputy first minister, announced his resignation from his mid-Ulster seat earlier this week as part of his party’s plans to phase out double-jobbing where some members hold seats in the House of Commons and the Northern Assembly. The law, which dates back to 1624, bans MPs from resigning their seat with death, disqualification and expulsion being the only means by which an MP’s seat may be vacated during the lifetime of a parliament. Therefore any MP who wishes to resign their seat, as McGuinness indicated he was doing earlier this week, must go through the process of applying for a paid office of the British crown which then automatically disqualifies them from holding a seat in the House of Commons. A brief statement on the website of the British Treasury today says: “The Chancellor of the Exchequer has this day appointed James Martin Pacelli McGuinness to be Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead.” Before he ran for a seat in the Dáil in 2011 Sinn Féin president Gerry Adams resigned his Westminster seat and automatically became the Crown Steward and Bailiff of the Manor of Northstead. At the time he denied having been consulted or having accepted an office describing this aspect of the British parliamentary system as “antiquated and quite bizarre”. http://www.thejournal.ie/martin-mcguinness-manor-of-northstead-738330-Jan2013/?utm_source=facebook
  6. Just want say a big Merry Christmas and seaaons greetings to all friends and comrades, Ive learned much about socialism and political theories and ideaology from all you and I look forward to working with you all in the future in pursuit of the Socialist Republic.
  7. The other night out of insomnia I got thinking of Amnesty policy for when the Republic comes as a last resort in the Unionist question, especially given the last few weeks carry on. It may seem extremist perhaps xenophobic but I think an amnesty for a voluntary exodus of the Fundementalist Protestant/Unionist population who despite being given offered fair treatment and being able to reap the benefits of the socialist Republic, point blank refuse to accept to be citizens of that Republic and wish to promote racism and two tiered society based on religious supremacy, That these mass internal hostile elements to the Republic as a last resort be offered amnesty to revoke their Irish citizenship and be deported to Britain which they claim citizenship. This is not new in revolutionary thinking, Castro afforded thousands of anti-revolutionary Hardline Catholic Cubans an amnesty to leave Cuba and make way to the States in the 70s, given these Cubans had already exiled their own children to Florida out of fear they would be brainwashed by Communists in schools. Im sure many Protestant Unionists will see sense and accept the Republic but there is worrying porportion I believe wont and will pose a threat in the North East of the Island. A amnesty for an exodus of hardline unioinism/fundementalist Protestants to Britain, Whats comrades views on this?
  8. Heres afew interesting facts about love/hate, The guy who plays the 'IRA leader' is actually in real life a former small time drug dealer who left Ireland after being put out of his home by the CPAD/IRA. Some of the worst most vile tabloid hacks including a women who claimed to have interviewed the late Alan Ryan and stated he was a moron despite having no proof of this alleged interview, are constantly on the set 'advising' and play extras such as guards(there is pictures to prove this), Alan Ryans sister highlighted this and confronted the hack in question through facebook and the coward reported it to the Gaurds. All the actors come from affluent South East Dublin, Wicklow and one main cast member from Portarlington, RTE still using sliver spoon fed Anglo middle class types to play 'tough Northsiders'. One of the writers is the brother of a Special Branchman. Actual people involved in the drug scene were hired to make the show 'realistic' and the content belieavable. So the whole argument 'its only telly', is bollox, its a live action version of a Paul Williams book, complete propaganda exercise against republicans and RTE cashing in on working class woes as usuals. I dont find the show paticular good either in terms acting and realism, Coming from working class background myself I dont identify with any of it, be it the accents, clothing style, content etc Its exactly what it is, a pack of Private school educated sheltered suburban types trying to pretend they know the ins and outs of working clsss Dublin and it comes accross exactly that. What would Donnybrook D4 based RTEs pampered princesses know about the real world anyway! The truth is republicans areant as stupid as portrayed(give or take afew eejits here and there) and the drug barons are far more monsterous

  10. Sean Connolly within the last week has been subjected to felon setting and psychological tortue by the establishment media, Gardai and Freestate prison authorities Upon arrival at Portlaoise, he was taken straight to segragation and denied entry onto E3 republican landing which is his right under Frestate law. Not long after the states bulldog Paul Williams wrote an article in the Independent, alluding there was a tout in the IRA. not naming but blatantly alluding it to be Connolly. An obvious attempt by Garda special branch to cause tension among republicans. This plot has failed and the truth has emerged to prove it to be all lies and bullshit, Sean is still in segragation and is refusing food until allowed onto E3
  11. A Tory scheme for stopping the jobless from frittering money on stuff like Sky TV A Tory scheme for stopping the jobless from frittering money on stuff like Sky TV By Andy McSmith Notebook, Opinion Tuesday, 18 December 2012 at 4:37 pm While George Osborne frets about claimants lying in bed with the blinds down, the Tory MP Alec Shelbrooke has turned his mind to what these people spend their money on when they finally get out of bed. Too much, he thinks, is going on “cigarettes, alcohol, Sky television and gambling” – NEDD items, he called them, which stands for ‘non essential, desirable and damaging.’ He introduced a Bill in the Commons today under which the government would stop paying any cash at all to any claimants except those on disability benefits or the state pension. The rest would be given welfare cash cards which they would use only to purchase what they really need, which he listed as “food, clothing, energy, travel and housing”. This, Mr Shelbrooke reckons, would help eradicate child poverty, reduce the strain on the NHS, and restore public confidence in the welfare system. Some people might object that it would be humiliating to have to use a claimant’s card, but Mr Shelbrooke gave that argument short shrift. “If people did not want to be recognised as being unemployed, job centres would cease to exist as people would not visit them for fear of being seen in them,” he said. There is no prospect of Mr Shelbrooke’s bill becoming law, but it says volumes about how some of the Tories regard the unemployed. http://blogs.independent.co.uk/2012/...f-like-sky-tv/ In times of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act - George Orwell

  14. There wasnt much that didnt happen in the criminal underworld without Eamon Kellys approval or say so, afther all he was mentor ans godfather to the young hoods he educated in Crime, I would say without question he had a part in Alans murder, he certainly has the most motive given he was top unchallenged dog on the block until the IRA got its act together an made it clear his drug enabling days were over, I dont think he liked the rub, and his stubborness may have cost him his life. He was an evil old coot who brought and oversaw the destruction of generations of the poorest among the working class. Im glad hes no longer among us

    Free Marian Price picket, Dublin, this Saturday

    Long story cara, very long Long story short its been done under auspices of the MP Dublin campaign by people not directly involved. Have two anti-internment banners procured so hopefully highlights overall issue aswel as Marians cause
  18. RSF member and prominant republican Cait Trainor from Lurgan was arrested today at a POW whiteline picket and was immediately interned in Hydebank internment camp. The real reasons given for her being held captive is she was present at a march attended bt the CIRA in which she gave a speech at. The real reason is she a popular and respected spokeswoman for a growing republican family.
  19. 'it is easier to kill a child in the womb then the Guerilla in the hills' This is a quote from Che Guevara, and after much diliberation within myself regarding how I feel about abortion, and as simplistic as it sounds this quote has made my up on the issue, I am utterly opposed to it. What I draw from the quote of Comrade Che is he is telling is its in the imperislists and capitalists interests to kill the children of the working class or the children who will be sick or troubled. Afterall these children will grow up to burdon their corrupt greedy states, worse still they my revolt against the state as guerilla revolutionaries, better for the capitalist/imperial social excluders destroy these children early on and make a tidy profit in doing so. I cant see it any other way now. And for all those trendy trot traitor liberals who cheerlead private abortion clinics and denounce all those who oppose abortion as 'anti-abortion', well if it was good enough for Che its good enough for me, and he was a ravid anti-sexist.
  20. Best of luck to Mickey McKevitt and Bernie Sands, appealing one of the greatest framings and miscarriages of justice in the recent history if this state, lets pray Mickeys out soon. http://m.brne.ws/ireland/mckevitt-begins-new-appeal-against-conviction-for-directing-terrorist-activities-571788.html
  21. RNU recently decided on more emphasis on Marxism within the network which I think is welcome
  22. It must be exhausting to be a monarchist, forever finding ways to pretend a family of cold, talentless snobs are better than the rest of us. They have to make gold out of mud. The system of monarchy -- selecting a head of state solely because of the womb they passed through, and surrounding them with sycophants from the moment they emerge -- produces warped and dim people, and demands we scrape before them. What's a poor monarchist to do? They can only lavish a thick cream of adjectives -- 'dignity,' 'charm,' 'majesty' -- over the Windsor family in the hope that some of us are fooled. This process corrupts even the most intelligent monarchists. A strange case study is the new authorized thousand-plus page biography of Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon , The Queen Mother, by William Shawcross. He is a smart man: his study of the secret bombing of Cambodia by Henry Kissinger is extraordinary. Yet as a monarchist he has an impossible task. He has to present a cruel, bigoted snob who fleeced millions from the British taxpayer as a heroine fit to rule over us. His mind turns to mush. Before the real Bowes-Lyon is lost in a frenzy of royalist rimming, we should remember who she really was: more Imelda Marcos than the good fairy Glinda. By the time she died, Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon was treating the British Treasury -- our tax-money -- as her personal piggy bank, with her bills running way beyond the millions she was allotted every year. Even the ultra-Tory Chancellor Norman Lamont complained that "she far exceeds her Civil List and the Treasury gets very het up about it." She used the money to pay for eighty-three full-time staffers, including four footmen, two pages, three chauffeurs (what do they do, split her into three parts for transportation?), a private secretary, an orderly, a housekeeper, five housemaids... the list goes on and on. She even insisted that it was a legitimate use of public funds to maintain a full-time 'Ascot office', whose job is to do nothing but keep a register of members of the Royal Enclosure and send them entry vouchers. She presented this spending -- enough to open and run a new hospital that would save thousands of lives every year -- as an act of selfless patriotism. Michael Mann, the former Dean of Windsor who knew her very well, explained: "She feels that Britain is Great Britain and that, therefore, ours must be no banana court. To lower standards [i.e., her spending on champagne, caviar and limos] is to denigrate the country and, insofar as high standards require big spending, so be it." When single mothers take 0.1 percent of this sum from the state, the same newspapers that laud Elizabeth as "the best of British" savage them as "scroungers." If they refused to pay tax -- as Elizabeth did -- they would have been put in prison. What did she do to earn these vast sums? Her parents were 'Lord' and 'Lady' Strathmore, and from birth she was waited on by a gaggle of servants including a butler, two footmen, five housemaids, a cook and numerous room maids. She grew up with four palaces at her disposal -- but it wasn't enough. She was obsessed with "bloodlines," which she believed determined a person's worth, and wanted to marry into what she regarded as "the best" -- the Windsor family. At first she tried to woo Edward Windsor, but when he wasn't interested, she settled for his stammering, highly strung younger brother, George. When Edward became King, she plotted to force his abdication so George could ascend and she could become 'Queen.' His "crime" was to fall in love with a divorcee -- and one with such poor bloodlines! Once Edward was successfully toppled, Elizabeth insisted he and his wife Wallace be driven into exile and blanked by royal circles. (The couple had plenty of real flaws, but Elizabeth was blind to them: it was the American-ness and the ambition and the divorce that she loathed.) This was her way with any relatives who displeased her by showing vulnerability. When her cousins became mentally ill, they were locked in asylums and never seen again. Elizabeth's entry in Who's Who falsely announced they were dead. This icy ruthlessness startled people who met her. In 1939, French Prime Minister Edouard Daladier said she was "an excessively ambitious young woman who would be ready to sacrifice every other country in the world so that she might remain Queen." The most striking aspect of Shawcross' biography is that once she had contrived to marry, Elizabeth really didn't do anything else for the rest of her life except spend, spend, spend -- our money. He has to pad out whole decades. She didn't even raise her own children: she would see them for an hour a day, and get them to chant: "We are not supposed to be normal. We are not supposed to be normal." But to be fair, she did do one more thing. In her spare time, she supported far right politics. She was a passionate defender of appeasing Adolf Hitler, lobbying behind the scenes to garner support for Neville Chamberlain. The reasons are plain: even fifty years later, she bragged to Woodrow Wyatt that she had "reservations about Jews." Once the war began, she was rebranded as a symbol of Britain's heroic resistance to the Nazis -- but what did she actually do? Unlike everyone else, she didn't live on rations, but was fattened by pheasants and venison on the royal estates. She didn't stay in bombed-out London anything like as much as the myth suggests: she spent much of the war in Windsor, Norfolk and Scotland, far from the Nazi planes, surrounded by battalions of servants. Elizabeth Bowes-Lyon kept up her support for far-right politics throughout her life. She did everything she could to bolster the torturing of white minority tyrannies in Rhodesia and South Africa, because -- as the journalist Paul Callan, who knew her, put it -- "She is not fond of black folk." Our beaming Queen Mum was Alf Garnett in a tiara. She believed Britain's class system reflected a natural hierarchy -- and the people below her creamy upper tier were inferior. She told Woodrow Wyatt, "I hate that classlessness. It is so unreal." At first, she was appalled by the idea of her eldest daughter marrying Phillip Mountbatten, because his "bloodlines" weren't good enough: his family had fallen from power, so they weren't "really" royal. When Diana Spencer started hugging AIDS victims and lepers, Elizabeth was disgusted. When Diana started rebelling, Elizabeth announced to friends the girl was "schizophrenic," but she was bemused because Diana came from "a good family." The rest of us, by implication, come from "bad families," where you would expect schizophrenia and other lower-class disorders. The defenders of Elizabeth were left claiming that her drunken inactivity was itself an achievement. W.F. Deedes, the late Telegraph columnist, claimed that "in an increasingly earnest world, she teaches us all how to have fun, that life should not be all about learning, earning and resting. In a world where we have all become workaholics, there she is...grinning at racehorses. Bless her heart." He was in favor of the dole after all -- provided it was worth three million pounds, and went to one single aristocrat. William Shawcross has won the favor of his fellow monarchists by taking this curdled life and presenting it as the best of British. It's the single most unpatriotic claim I've ever heard. If you don't think Britain can do better -- far better -- than this nasty leech and her stunted family, then you don't deserve to live in this Sceptred Isle.

  23. Are you serious? I'm not even going to bother getting into that debate. Is that all you can say? oh well the rag tabloids said it therefore there is absolutely no truth in it? It's a completely immature position to take The dogs on the street within republicanism know that many (not all) in these groups are up to their eye balls in all manner of dodgyness The notion that these groups who are mixed up in the criminal underworld (not saying they're criminals) have not got dirt on their hands and are pure, the IRA etc, needs to be debunked amongst republicans before we can move on and restore our image (and our reality) as a virtuous one to the Irish people

    People on the Streets in Donaghmede

    There is a silent revolution going on in working class communities. The people have realised the politicians, state institutions even councilors have no sustainable power nor ability to bring influencial evil doers on both sides of the legal structure like Developers or drug barons to account. So communitees are being formed enacting the most purist yet effective actions such as boycotts, marches and refusal of payments. Its still on a small level but growing none the less
