A cairde na laochra agus a cairde go leir failte romhat go dti an comoradh “eiri amach na casca 1916”
On behalf of the republican fraternity of County Wexford we would like to welcome you all to the 96th anniversary of the 1916 Sinn Féin Easter rising. We send greetings and best wishes to those republicans who are sick or in hospital. We also remember with pride and sorrow all those who have passed away recently. We also extend our solidarity to the Palestinian people; we join with them in their legitimate quest for a free and just Palestinian nation.
However today we have a very different republic.
We have a republic of partition.
We have republic of in- equality.
We have a republic that fosters and looks after, to a disgusting degree, the greedy and the wealthiest of this nation, disregarding and alienating the ordinary citizens whom they are walking on and driving into the ground, by their mismanagement of our economy, by the unmanly way they are excepting the troika dictat without even putting up a single solitary argument, and by introducing callous austerity measures that are devastating and causing low income families to crumble.
This can be attributed to the leadership of a party that shamefully claims to be republican, and now are substituted by the coalition of the willing, Fine Gael and Labour.
We must not allow, we must never allow, the stock exchange bell to ring over our land, our people, our nation.
