Labour's Left is accusing Sir Keir of a "purge" after another party candidate was barred from standing in the General Election, this time for liking a series of posts on X that downplayed accusations of antisemitism.

Remembering Ireland’s Dead at Easter

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Thursday April 01, 2010 00:39author by éirígí PRO - éirígí Report this post to the editors

éirígí chairperson Brian Leeson has called for republicans to remember Ireland’s patriot dead with pride this Easter and attend the party’s commemorations
'Remember Irelands Patriot Dead- Wear an Easter Lily'
'Remember Irelands Patriot Dead- Wear an Easter Lily'

éirígí has organised commemorations in both Belfast and Dublin to mark the 94th anniversary of the Easter Rising, as well as a number of smaller ceremonies across the country.

Breandán Mac Cionnaith, éirígí’s general secretary, will be giving the main oration at the Irish Citizen Army plot in Glasnevin, while former Blanketman and ex-chair of the Belfast National Graves Association Pádraic Mac Coitir will be the main speaker at the Harbinson Plot in Milltown Cemetery.

Leeson said: “While éirígí is organising these commemorations, all republicans who wish to remember those who have given their lives in the cause of Irish freedom are more than welcome to attend.

“These will not be strictly party political events, as evidenced by our choice of main speaker in Belfast, they will, first and foremost, be an opportunity for republicans to remember our patriot dead and recommit ourselves to the struggle for a 32-county socialist republic.

“We extend a particular invite to the families of our fallen comrades, to ex-prisoners and to those young people who have recently taken an interest in the republican struggle.”

He continued: “The state of Ireland today indicates that all republicans and socialists still have a lot to do to make the vision contained in the 1916 Proclamation and the writings of James Connolly a reality.

“Half-a-million people are unemployed in this country, the population in the Six Counties continues to live under an occupation enforced by the British government’s armed forces, while the political institutions in both states serve no one but the wealthy.

“The resting places of Ireland’s patriot dead are the perfect venues for socialist republicans to recommit themselves to ending these injustices and building an Ireland that the signatories of the 1916 Proclamation would be proud of.”

Pádraic Mac Coitir commended éirígí for organising the commemorations.

“While I’m not a member of éirígí, I’m honoured to have been asked to give the oration on Easter Monday. Easter is an important time in the republican calendar and éirígí are to be commended for offering an outlet for socialist republicans to fittingly remember all those who gave their lives in the cause of Irish freedom.”

Dublin: Saturday 3rd April. Wreath laying at the memorial to the Battle of Mount Street Bridge, corner of Percy Place and Northumbland Rd, 1.30pm.
Newry: Saturday 3rd April. Wreath laying ceremonies will take place at the Michael Hughes monument, Derrybeg estate; Derrybeg volunteers Monument, Derrybeg estate; Brendan Watters Monument, Barcroft estate; St Mary’s memorial cross, Barley lane; Republican plot, St Mary’s graveyard.
Fermanagh: Sunday 4th April. Assemble at the grave of Jim Murphy in Derrylin, at 11.45am. Speaker: Bernice Swift. Organised by the Seán Mac Diarmada Society.
Dublin: Sunday 4th April. Assemble at Hart's Corner, Phibsboro, at 1.30pm, for march to Citizen Army plot, Glasnevin.
Belfast: Monday 5th April. Assemble at Milltown Cemetery gates, Falls Road, at 1pm, for march to Harbinson plot.

The heroes of 1916 must be turning in their graves at the actions of modern day Irish traitors that have brought our country to its knees.
These scum will be there on the day with false praise for true heroes as usual. They should be shown up for the traitors and hypocrites that they are and this would be a greater tribute to the men that died for us.
I found it nausiating to see pictures of Bertie Aherne plastered all over the walls of the museum for Michael Davitt in Mayo, What would the men of 1916 have done with Bertie and his pals?

Padraic Pearse went into Arnotts on Henry street a week before the occupation of the GPO and paid off the 7 shilling 2/6d balance he owed on his suit. The suit he got arrested in a week later. Back then, to pass from this life without owing a debt was concidered honourable.
It is Ironic that Bertie Aherne has a portrait of Padraic Pearse hanging behind him on his wall, in his office in Dromcondra. Bertie cant remember where he got all this money or which bank account or how much, and has allowed the greatest rip-off of the people of the Irish Nation, supported US led genocide and sold our resources worth 560 billion..... and...Pearse.....who would not shame himself by dying with debt as he prepared to lay down his life for this country, forsaken by his forebarers.

Glad to see all of you psuedo-republicans celebrating the great war dead. Including those war dead who carried out numerous attrocities during the 30 year "troubles"

The definition of war should be reconsidered however. If it's a bomb below the car of an unarmed member of the security forces, when they are taking children to school etc, its an act of war.
However when the SAS are brought into the equation in response to the calous and cowardly murderers of the Pira / Ira / Sinn Fein / Cira / Inla , its described by the cowards in Sinn Fein as shoot to kill!

How laughable, have it our way (the Sinn Fein way) or no way... the North, still British, Gerry Adams, paid in GB Pounds, the flag over Stormont, STILL the union Jack.

The SAS would not have to 'respond' to anything if they were not there in the first place. And your use of the word 'war' is not apt. War, in case you forgot, generally and in the main, used to mean two armies confronting each other in an open field... Now, the British, the US and yourself believe that sending in heavily armed, sofisticated, trained military personell against a civilian population is war- you could not be further from the truth.
If someone walked into your living room and took over your house you would probably make them a nice cuppa tea, and clean there boots and thank them for their company and let them use your back as a mat..
