The New Republic we need – public meeting, Dublin, 4pm, Saturday, January 20

 

Public launch of a major new Éirígí policy document – ‘A Democratic Programme For The New Republic’ – 4pm, January 20th, 2018, Wynn’s Hotel, Abbey Street Lower, Dublin. Main speaker: Cathaoirleach Éirígí, Brian Leeson. Coinciding with the 99th anniversary of the adoption of the ‘The Democratic Programme of the First Dáil Éireann’, this event will also include a talk on that historic document by the renowned historian Dr Ruan O’Donnell.

The Ireland of 2018 is a pale imitation of the Ireland envisioned in the 1916 Proclamation and the 1919 Democratic Programme of the first Dáil Éireann. The country remains partitioned with endemic inequality, deprivation and injustice in both the Twenty-Six and Six Counties. In both states the interests of private capital are placed ahead of the needs of the people – a scenario which is facilitated by a corrupt political establishment based in Leinster House and Stormont.

Éirígí believes in a New Republic that will put the needs of the many ahead of the greed of the few; a New Republic that will protect and manage our natural environment for the benefit of future generations; a New Republic that will be secular, equalitarian and internationalist; a New Republic that will support our native language and culture; a New Republic that will provide secure, properly paid employment for everyone that can work and support for those that cannot; a New Republic that will provide all of our citizens with the housing, healthcare, education and other essential services that they need to reach their full potential.

Come to Wynn’s Hotel to hear more about Éirígí’s vision of a new Republic and our ideas about how we can get there. This meeting in open to everyone and free of charge. We hope to see you there.
