British Monarch Not Welcome Here - Protest
Sunday May 15, 2011 13:48 by Republican Network for Unity - Republican Network For Unity
As the impending visit of the British Monarch looms ever near, preparations by the State have long been under way to suppress resistance in any way, shape or form.
Many homes have become targets for the State police who have began a series of raids and arrests across Dublin City and further afield. We have witnessed the outrageous decision by Dublin City Council (DCC) to silence the voice of the people by imposing draconian measures to outlaw free speech. Many posters against the Imperialist visit across Dublin are soon to be banned and have already been, ripped down in an act of desperation by those who wish to sabotage and hamper any form of opposition to this unwanted visit. The Ireland as we know it today bears a striking resemblance to a totalitarian police state that is rotten to the core.
Thousands of families are soon to be subjected to what can only be described as a ‘lock-down’ and imprisoned within the confines of a discriminative cordon. This ring of steel has been designed to keep the working class communities segregated from the proceedings of the capitalist class whose hierarchy knows no bounds.
The ruthlessness of the State will be plain for all to see as communities across Dublin feel the brunt of fierce oppression by those in power who maintain their gag on the voice of the people.
The State, through its puppet broadcasting system, RTE, has invariably been polluting the airwaves with pro-British propaganda in an attempt to create a false sense of consciousness among the populace. It continues to manipulate the masses by fabricating false idols and intruding into the eye of the beholder, bogus interpretations of a country that has ‘moved on.’ But the State continues to contradict itself with the ever presence of British occupation visible in the six counties and the scores of neglected working class communities in an Ireland that has far from, moved on!
Over 10,000 gardaí and soldiers will be deployed onto the streets of Dublin to counteract against any resistance proposed by the Irish people. People in their homes are being victimised and interrogated by the Special Branch while sporadic searches of the public continue to prevail. Surface to Air Missiles have also been deployed at Baldonnel Airport. The estimated cost for the security of this visit is in the region of 30 million Euros although the full cost would be much higher and will never be made known to the public.
This visit is also a travesty of justice for the families and victims of the Dublin and Monaghan bombings who will be marking the anniversary of their loved ones deaths on the same day the State facilitates a Royal visit. To date, no one person has ever being convicted for this crime even though evidence points to collusion between loyalist death squads and the British Government. Those responsible for this terrible atrocity need to be brought to justice immediately and held accountable for their crimes.
The Republican Network for Unity will be protesting against this unjustifiable visit on the 17th of May and we encourage all republicans to gather at Connolly Train Station at 12pm where we will then march to the Garden of Remembrance.
