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....."

Hi!

The Republican Sinn Féin '1916 National Centenary Committee' has announced that the 100th anniversary of the 1916 Easter Rising will be marked in Dublin on Saturday 23rd April 2016 - those attending are requested to assemble at the Garden of Remembrance in Parnell Square, from where a parade will leave at 1.45pm for the GPO in O'Connell Street. See the 'Related Link' , below, for related information from the Republican Sinn Féin '1916 National Centenary Committee' website.
(More details will be posted on this thread in due time.)

All genuine republicans welcome!

Thanks,
Sharon.

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?

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.
