Statement by the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton

In a statement the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton called for a spoil vote campaign in the forthcoming 26-County election to highlight the need for a radical and revolutionary change to the political system:

“We hear much talk about creating a ‘New Republic’. Irish Republicans have long pointed out that Ireland did have an All-Ireland Republic born out of the idealism of the men and women of Easter Week and based on the principles of the 1916 Proclamation. The Democratic Programme of the First All-Ireland Dáil Éireann in 1919 declared: ‘that the Nation's sovereignty extends not only to all men and women of the Nation, but to all its material possessions, the Nation's soil and all its resources’. The two failed partitionist states imposed on the Irish people fall far short of this noble vision.

“Republican Sinn Féin believe our political, social and economic policies Éire Nua and Saol Nua can once more make that All-Ireland Republic a reality for all of the Irish people.” Des Dalton said.
