Who Are You Out For?


 

We are out for Ireland for the Irish. But who are the Irish? Not the rack- renting, slum-owning landlord ; not the sweating, profit grinding capitalist; not the sleek and oily lawyer; not the prostitute pressmen – the hired liars of the enemy…. but the Irish working class….

– James Connolly April 8 1916.

WHO ARE YOU OUT FOR?

“Only the Irish working class remain as the incorruptible inheritors of the fight for freedom in Ireland” -James Connolly, 1910.


We received word that a company was hired by danskbank to move onto Paddy Floods home to remove farm machinery and scrap cars ect over the weekend. We have barricaded the front entrance and Paddys friends and neighbors kept watch at the gates overnight. This is an attack on rural Ireland, an attack on a very vulnerable 70 year old man by a foreign bank.
Paddy made every effort to pay off a very small loan ( not a mortgage ) but the bank refused his offers,Please head to hilltown, castlepollard co.westmeath

Maybe its time to stop harping around?


 

 

James Connolly

 1899

After Ireland is free, says the patriot who wont touch socialism, we will protect all classes, and if you won’t pay your rent, you will be evicted same as now. But the evicting party… will wear green uniforms and the harp without the Crown… Now isn’t that worth fighting for? –

( Dudley Edwards, Ruth, James Connolly, Gill & Macmillian, 1981, p.31.)

Just because we take away the term “King” doesn’t mean we’ve solved the problem of oppression.

 Not ancient history, just history repeating itself:

 

Luke Byrne – 07 March 2013

A terminally ill woman, who was subjected to a failed eviction attempt, will leave her home if emergency accommodation can be secured……
