which I think bears thinking about, is this:
will never allow Republicans to sit in the seat of
power unless they are completely defenseless. So they
continue with the D demands: Decommissioning, disbanding
of the IRA etc., while Loyalists terrorize our people.
problem lies with the so-called Good Friday or Belfast
"agreement". It promises everything to everyone
and cannot possibly deliver anything but 6 counties
under British control. Talk of demographic changes
can be forever subverted as was done in the forced
creation of the artificial state in the first place.
us not forget that Ireland as a whole voted for one
free Ireland in the last real all Ireland election.
so-called Republicans accepted the terms of internal
consent (under British Rule) it was all lost. There
are no "stepping-stones to the 'republic"
as it has been called. If a solution is not an all-Ireland
one, it is a not a solution at all.
minimum requirements for a real solution are:
Statement of intent of British forces and Government
to withdraw from Ireland within the life of British
Government and actual withdrawal in stated time.
Setting up of an all Ireland constitutional convention
to work along the lines of Eire Nua, which is the
only solution not yet tried.
settle for less only provides Unionism with a false
hope of somehow retaining power over Occupied Ireland
for the indefinite future. Thus putting off the day
Ireland will be united. The sooner Unionists are told
there is no other option the better. To do otherwise
is both unfair and unwise. Reuniting Ireland does
not threaten Unionists. Rather it would protect their
right to be whatever they want to be - be it British
and/or Irish. We Republicans in Ireland have long
cherished all our children regardless of heritage.
Unionists will be a minority in Ireland yes, but a
larger one than they are in the British system. They
should play their part in the future development of
Ireland as one united nation. If all the energy that
has been expended in a futile war for and against
occupation is turned instead to building a strong
and vibrant nation think of the possibilities.
hope the message is clear to all those who live in
fantasy land of the Good Friday "agreement".
It will not work; it was not really meant to work
for the Irish people, but rather to copperfasten Union
with Britain. Thus they retain influence over all
of Ireland directly and indirectly.
Ireland needs is an Irish solution to the problems
that have been created by Britains involvement
in Ireland. The best thing Britain can do is work
with us to bring about freedom and justice for too
long denied our people. If indeed they have no selfish
interests in Ireland let them finally do this. It
is the only way Britain can redeem itself for all
the wrongs they have done in Ireland. We who have
suffered the most from Britains wars against
the Irish people want peace the most. But peace without
justice is a false peace. And will never endure.
unfree shall never be at peace is as true today
as it ever was.
welcome a discussion with anyone Irish, British or
whoever on this subject.
