Nua Easter Statement
We would also like to take a moment
to thank all of those who have supported us and continue to
support us in our efforts to keep the flame of Irish nationhood
alight amidst revisionist efforts to re-write history and stifle
the ideals of 1916.
There exists an element who would
have us accept the status quo, who have hijacked the name of
Irish republicanism for personal gain when convenient, and
suffocate and suppress the same when not.
We as Irish republicans and those
of you associated with us in today’s task and duty- to pay
tribute to those gallant men and women who gave the ultimate
sacrifice- so that Ireland might live-
Must stand together for the
achievement of the ideals of those very men and women whom we
remember here today.
We’ve all seen written out
Let us not forget that 2016 is not
the end- as long as there remains a foreign occupying force in
any part of Ireland 1916 remains unfinished business!- Connolly
may have said it best-
“there is but one ideal - an
Ireland ruled, and owned, by Irish men and women, sovereign and
independent from the center to the sea, and flying its own flag
outward over all the oceans.”
Those who died in 1916 didn’t do so
for puppet seats in a kinder gentler Stormont, nor did they give
their lives for positions in a stooge Dail Eireann guided by the
unseen hand of the British government!
No, they died for nothing less than
a 32 county Ireland, United Gaelic, and Free!
And today, we say to the
revisionists of history
We will accept nothing less!
To paraphrase a line from James
Connolly’s last statement on May the 9th 1916-
“Believing that the British
Government has no right in Ireland, never had any right in
Ireland, and never can have any right in Ireland, the presence,
in any one generation of Irishmen, of even a respectable
minority, ready to die to affirm that truth, makes that
Government forever a usurpation and a crime against human
That is why we are so committed to
the Eire Nua program,
the concept on which Eire Nua is
based is that of a unitary federation of the four historic
provinces of Ireland that would include all of Ireland's 32
counties under the coordination of a national parliament. This
construct would foster a true democracy and eliminate the causes
for conflict, such as Ireland has experienced for the past eight
hundred years. The Eire Nua constitution with its Charter of
Rights would guarantee all of Ireland's people true freedom, a
home for its children, and a new beginning.
