Message of solidarity to Saoradh´s Ard Fheis 2019:

The Ireland Information Group of Sweden wants to send our best wishes for the coming year to Saoradh on your annual Ard Fheis.

This last year has been a year where we have seen an increase in harrassment against the Republican Movement in general, and against Saoradh and your members in particular. We have also seen how you, in spite of these harrassements, have kept the revolutionary flag flying high and never wavered in your struggle or ideals.

The struggle for the united Socialist Republic goes on, north and south of the british border. With or without Brexit. In both the occupied six counties, where the brits show no intet of withdrawing, and in the illegitimate Free State, where the neo liberal-agenda takes it’s toll on the working class community as well as on the elderly, the sick, or otherwise disadvantaged.

The struggle goes on for a republic in accordance with the proclamation of 1916 with ”religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all its citizens”, and also in the words of James Connolly that even “if you remove the English Army tomorrow and hoist the green flag over Dublin Castle, unless you set about the organization of the Socialist Republic your efforts will be in vain. England will still rule you. She would rule you through her capitalists, through her landlords, through her financiers, through the whole array of commercial and individualist institutions she has planted in this country and watered with the tears of our mothers and the blood of our martyrs.”

We are glad to see Saoradh stand fast in that struggle, and are proud to stand by your side in international solidarity.

We are very happy that we were able to meet representatives from your party during the Easter Commemoration this year, and are thankful for the great hospitality you showed us. We are also very happy to have been able to establish further contacts with you and look forward towards further co-operation with you in support of the Republican Struggle in the coming year.

In international solidarity.
