Éirígí launches election campaign for Brian Leeson, Saturday, 17 November, 7pm, Mill Theatre, Dundrum

The official launch for Brian’s election campaign for the Local Elections which will take place in May 2019. The launch is on from 7.00pm to 8.30pm in The Mill Theatre in Dundrum on Sat, Nov 17th.

Clare Daly TD and MIck Wallace TD will be in attendance as special guests. Food, music and drinks in The Eagle after the launch for those that want them.

A political activist since 1989, this is Brian’s first time running for public office. Probably no other candidate in the Dundrum Local Electoral Area has been involved in so many progressive political campaigns over such a long period of time.

From supporting the then-isolated nationalist community in the Six Counties in the early 1990s to fighting for housing justice today, Brian has consistently stood with oppressed communities and working class people in opposition to injustice, exploitation and inequality.

Brian is a former Sinn Féin National Organiser – back in the days before SF’s capitulation to the system.  He was part of a small group who left SF in the wake of its decision to sit on policing boards in the north.  This group established Éirígí in 2006.  As the current Cathaoirleach of Éirígí, he has a proven track record of working with others to advance the cause of a new all-Ireland Republic based upon the principles of democracy, liberty, equality, sustainability and community: a workers’ republic.

On Saturday he will expand on Éirígí’s vision of what that new Republic would look like and outline how he would use a council seat if elected in May 2019.

The launch is open to all but the organisers would appreciate if you could let them know if you intend coming, so they can plan for seating and eating!
