category international | history and heritage | event notice author Wednesday February 19, 2014 22:11author by Sharon. - Individual. Report this post to the editors

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?

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.
