fact that we have Irish republicans incarcerated in
British and Irish prisons although negative in one
sense has a positive aspect in that their internment
reflects the reality of the truth that our Nation
has not lost its 'anawim' or faithful few. It also
shouts to Adams and McGuinness and their mafia of
lundies that the spirit of Bobby Sands is alive and
well and roaring like the late summer wind across
the City of Derry as I pen these few lines of solidarity.
there is any fool out there that believes that the
Belfast Agreement is the basis for a free and self
determining Ireland then why are Irish patriots denied
the human right to be free? Why are lovers and servants
of their homeland incarcerated by the forces of a
foreign power and the toady quislings of the Dublin
Establishment? Why as our fellow patriots lie in prisons
do the so called free part of our country permit the
USA establishment to fuel their planes of hell in
the latter's thirst for revenge and geographical power
and control? Why! Why! Why!
answer: the revolutionary is a harbinger of a new
order! He or she are light years beyond the thought
of those minds who are the lap dogs of capitalistic
imperialism. Not alone are they willing to risk their
freedom for the welfare of others they will risk even
life itself for the same objective. They can not and
will not tolerate lies and conditions which prohibits
the full realization of Emmet's epitaph. They will
not accept the so called 'new Ireland' flogged under
the lies of the Belfast Agreement. A partitioned Ireland
that the southern political establishment supports
for it will not rock their corrupt control of the
ordinary descent man and woman of the 26 counties.
A fake Ireland where unity is deposited to the bin
of friendly border co-operation and the acceptance
of an injustice, that is, foreign occupation in the
name of a false peace.
those imprisoned know that there cannot be authentic
peace without authentic justice. A justice whereby
the right of Ireland to be free and one is the basis.
An authentic peace providing the conditions whereby
the means of production, distribution, and exchange
are in the hands of the people not an elitist minority.
I salute you, you are in my thoughts. . . and will
do whatever in my power for the realisation of our
shared objective. It is an objective which I have
pursued since I was 15 years old in 1955 many
years before some of you left the wombs of your mothers
but an objective which in a sense is a vocation
to us all. Our day will come, in that I have no doubt!
