On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the 1918 General Election, the last Democratic expression of Irish Self Determination during which our People overwhelmingly ratified the Republic proclaimed in Arms in 1916, Irish Socialist Republicans have launched a new campaign to defend and rebuild the Irish Socialist Republic- ‘This is Our Mandate, This is Our Republic’
2019 marks the 100th Anniversary of the establishment of the Irish Socialist Republic with the formation An Chead Dáil on January 21 1919.
Building on the 1916 Rising, at that first meeting of the Revolutionary Dáil Éireann the democratically elected representatives of the people of Ireland declared our Independence and released three documents to confirm the establishment of the Irish Socialist Republic.
These documents were the Declaration of Irish Independence, A Message to the Free Nations of the World and the Democratic Programme.
Of these documents the Democratic Programme is the most important.
With the 1916 Proclamation, the Democratic Programme outlines the Revolutionary Socialist nature of the Irish People’s Republic and sets out the type of society that would be established in the People’s Republic.
The socialist nature of the Democratic Programme struck fear into the hearts of Irish Capitalism and British Imperialism. This led that axis of evil into an alliance to brutally suppress the Irish Socialist Republic by violent counter revolution.
Although suppressed, the Republic never died. We assert that the Irish Republic is inalienable and non judicable. The Proclamation and Democratic Programme remain our mandate for the reestablishment of the Irish Socialist Republic.
As part of the new campaign thousands of copies of the Democratic Programme have been reproduced as an eye catching A3 poster and will be distributed across the country.
The campaign aims to build support for the People’s Republic through the repopularisation of the radical message of the Democratic Programme amongst the Irish Working Class and will include campaign stalls, public meetings, door to door poster distributions, distribution and events in towns and cities across Ireland and through direct actions.
The campaign is open to all who owe their allegiance to the Irish Socialist Republic proclaimed in Arms in 1916.
If your ready to get involved, get in touch today.
