IRSCNA: 2011 Easter Solidarity Message
The IRSCNA marks the 95th anniversary of the Easter Rising and sends solidarity greetings to comrades.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
23 April 2011
Irish Republican Socialist Committees of North America
2011 Easter Solidarity Message
On this, the 95th anniversary of the Easter Rising, the Irish
Republican Socialist Committees of North America pay respect to the
spirit of 1916, and in particular the contributions of the Irish
Citizen Army and the distinct republican socialist tradition.
We celebrate the Easter Rising of 1916, when the Irish Citizen Army
and the Irish Volunteers rose in arms against British imperialism. 95
years later, their task remains incomplete. The northern Six Counties
remain colonized and occupied by the British state, while the
southern Twenty-Six Counties are a lackey state for the imperialist
world order. The historic task of republican socialism, to liberate
Ireland from the shackles of both capitalism and imperialism, remains
to be completed by a mass movement of class conscious workers.
Despite the constant lies and slander from the desperate lackeys of
the bosses who have tried to convince the world that the Rising was
sectarian or simply mad, the Easter Rising remains an inspiration to
all freedom-loving exploited people. It is a fitting time to remember
our comrades who gave their lives for a Workers' Republic.
We recognize the Irish Republican Socialist Party as the inheritor of
the republican socialist tradition, Ireland's incorruptible tradition
of anti-imperialism and class struggle. We are honored to continue
representing the IRSP in North America. We salute the hard work of
our comrades who daily build the party in the footsteps of James
Connolly, Seamus Costello, Ta Power, and Gino Gallagher.
We also take this opportunity to send our greetings to republican
socialist prisoners of war in British and Irish prisons. They, like
our martyred fallen comrades, remain an ever-present inspiration to
us in our efforts. We likewise send greetings to all those in Ireland
and around the world imprisoned because of their participation in
anti-imperialist and/or class struggles, including republican
prisoners of war.
The IRSCNA would like to recognize the hard work and commitment of our
friends in the Irish Freedom Committee, and we look forward to coming
together with them again later this year to commemorate the 30th
anniversary of the 1981 hunger strike, in which three members of the
Irish National Liberation Army gave their lives in struggle along
with seven members of the Provisional Irish Republican Army.
We are living in a time of extended and unresolvable crises. A
collapse in which the failure of the Good Friday Agreement and St.
Andrews accords are obvious. No longer are the bosses' agreements
serving to cover the divisions and fault lines in the occupied Six
Counties. As long as Britain remains, there will be no peace in
Ireland, and no genuinely democratic settlement is possible.
In Ireland, conditions are growing for a republican socialist
alternative to fill the void in revolutionary politics. On May 5th,
voters in the North of Ireland go to the polls for council elections.
For the first time in three decades, five IRSP candidates in Belfast,
Derry, and Strabane are on the ballot offering a republican socialist
alternative. We urge working class voters to cast their votes for that
In North America, the IRSCNA can report that our organization and its
activity level continue to grow each year, and we are proud to
continue our representation of the IRSP and build support for
Onward to victory, comrades!
