The RSF Easter Commemoration to mark the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Rising will be held in Dublin on Saturday 23rd April 2016.

“The build-up to Centenary of the 1916 Rising is rapidly developing into a battle over not only how we view our past but also the vision we have for our future. We begin the countdown to 2016 and in doing so set out the relevance of 1916 for the Ireland of today....."

When will those who are commerating the Easter Rising recognise the contribution to Irish freedom made by Michael Collins whose leadership of the Volunteers and forward- thinking social and economic ideas demonstrated just how limited Eamon de Valera, our national "hero" was and what a disaster his untimely death was for our country?

author by Sharon. - Individual.publication date Tue Sep 02, 2014 21:52Report this post to the editors

Hi Gerry!

The 'contributions' of both Collins and de Valera are well recognised by republicans. Of that you can be sure.
Also, while I'm at it, could I suggest you continue to 'think the unthinkable' about Collins on this 'Indymedia' thread -

-I'm sure your input would be invaluable. And probably appreciated.

Thanks,
Sharon.

Will citizens of other countries (other than British) be welcome to join the parade and other festivities?

author by Sharon. - Individual.publication date Wed Sep 17, 2014 21:34Report this post to the editors

Hi Bill!

Citizens of other countries (including British citizens) will be most welcome to join us at, for instance, the GPO on that Saturday ( 23rd April 2016) and at whatever other events will be taking place and, indeed, we actively seek them out in the crowds at street commemorations etc as we find that they seem to really appreciate the leaflets, pamphlets etc that we hand out to mark the occasion.
Fáilte / Welkomma / Welkom !

Thanks,
Sharon.

Hi Gary!

Thanks for the favourable comment - appreciated!

The RSF-sponsored website at the 'Related Link' , below, may be of interest to you (and others) and no doubt we will see you (and others!) on a picket, protest and/or commemoration between now and then.

Thanks again,
Sharon.

Hi John!

Thanks for the contact.
Although the actual rising itself began on the 24th April in 1916, the above-mentioned committee have decided that they will commemorate same, in Dublin, on Saturday the 23rd April, 2016, to facilitate other commemorative events which will be taking place, and those attending are requested to assemble at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Square from 1pm, from where a parade will leave at 1.45pm for the GPO in O'Connell Street, on that Saturday (23rd April 2016).
Hope this clarifies the matter for you,

Thanks again,
Sharon.

Hi again, John!

If you make it to Dublin for Easter 2016, John, make sure you are not hoodwinked into attending an Easter Rising commemoration at the GPO or elsewhere organised by false prophets ie at which British 'royalty' and/or State politicians are present - both of those groups are representative of those that fought against the men and women of 1916. But you will be in good company if you can make it to the GPO on Saturday 23rd April 2016 - a smaller gathering, without a doubt, and not as much 'pomp and ceremony' as you'll get from the "official" outing, but you won't feel the need for a shower afterwards!

Thanks,
Sharon.

Sharon,
My wife and I are planning to be in Ireland for the 100 yr remembrance in 2016. I have been to Ireland several times and am looking forward to coming back. I would like to be able to have a list of events that a man of republican beliefs would like to attend. Coming from America, it is always a bit confusing to get to the right places, run by the right people. I am sure you understand. We will be doing our usual B&B lodging thing I imagine, but that is still up in the air. Any advice from you or others would be wonderful
Thanks
Joe

Hi Joe !

Thanks for taking the time to read this thread and to leave a comment on it - appreciated!
The best advice I can offer re your post is , as stated above, 'beware of false prophets' - there are groups here with deep pockets but who are shallow where it matters in relation to 1916 , and they will be organising activities ranging from airplane fly-overs across O'Connell Street to block-booking theatres for weeks on end and, whereas they have the financial substance to do that, they lack the moral substance as, in this instance, they will be preaching a 'do as I say and not as I do' gospel re 1916.

For now, Joe, you could keep an eye out for information updates on this thread and on the 'Related Link' mentioned in the opening post, and have a read about the relevance of the centenary on the 'Related Link' , below. I hope you and your wife make it to Ireland as planned, and that you enjoy your visit - I'll look out for ye on Saturday 23rd April 2016, at the Garden of Remembrance and/or outside the GPO. There won't be any red carpet there, Joe, no fly-overs or theatres block-booked, no hypocritical politicians or so-called 'dignitaries present, but it will be an honest affair, with genuine republicans in attendance.
And you and your good wife are more than welcome to join in!

Thanks again, Joe ,
Sharon.

Thanks Sharon for the info.
We are simple people, we need not a flyover or fireworks. I would prefer to reflect in silence with others who understand the struggle. I have no doubt we will make it there whereas I have been thinking about this for many years. We wont be hard to spot, An Irish man that looks like Clay Morrow from SOA and his Portagee Wife, both wearing the coveted Fenian Claddah rings :) . I will follow this post and hopefully gather enough info to make wise choices.
Thanks again
Joe

Hi again, Joe!

And it's a 'simple' commemoration that will be held at the GPO in O'Connell Street on Saturday, 23rd April 2016 - substance will win out over 'style' (ie no "flyover or fireworks") but all the more meaningful because of it. I hope you and your good wife can share those moments with us to commemorate this 'unfinished business'.

Thanks again,
Sharon.

Hi May i make a humble suggestion , the first man who died during the 1916 rising was a an irish comrade whose name was abraham wix , i believe he died in the GPO, and also daniel sugarman or sweetman who organised arms for Michael collins.
Both these men were proud irish men of the jewish fate, and history seems to have forgotten these men maybe because after the 2nd world war a lot of irish jews returned to Israel/Palestine.
Regardless of our individual feelings we have on the Israel /Palestine conflict ,i myself have lived there for a number of years and shall remain impartial on the subject, but should we not in the interest of all our people both catholic , protestant and dissenter have some type of acknowlodgement for the families of the above people whose lives were lost for the independence of out state.
kind regards Jason

Hi Jason!

Thanks for taking the time to read this thread and to leave a comment here - appreciated.
I don't believe that it's correct to say that "history seems to have forgotten these (Jewish) men..." as they and their comrades are commemorated, acknowledged and remembered each year at Easter, regardless of which religious faith (if any) they were members of.
I myself would not be "impartial" in regards to the conflict you mentioned, but I do respect your right to be so, if that is what you want.

Thanks again, Jason,

Sharon.
