The Proclamation




IRISHMEN AND IRISHWOMEN: In the name of God! In memory of the dead generations from which she receives her old tradition of nationhood, Ireland, through us, summons her children to her flag and strikes for her freedom from “An Aristocracy Nua”.

Having been disorganised and drained of her vitality through the State’s secretive revenue gathering organisations, most notably but alas not only Fianna Fail, and through the blatant misuse of the instruments of taxation for the betterment of the few at the expense of the many, having patiently paid her dues, having resolutely waited for the right moment to spread her wings, she now lies destitute, and, unsupported by her exiled children in America and browbeaten by former allies in Europe, she relies in the first on her own strength, which has been systematically sapped by gombeenism and corruption.

We still declare the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland, and to the unfettered control of Irish destinies, to be sovereign and indefeasible. The long usurpation of that right by a labyrinthine Golden Circle and government has not extinguished the right, nor can it ever be extinguished except by the destruction of the Irish people. In every generation the Irish people have asserted their right to national freedom and sovereignty; seven times during the last four hundred years they have asserted it to arms. Standing on that fundamental right and again asserting it in the face of the world, we hereby proclaim the Irish Republic as a Sovereign Independent State, with a fair and equitable burden of taxation for ALL not just the lower and middle income groups and we pledge our lives and the lives of our comrades-in-arms to the cause of its freedom, of its welfare, and of its reclamation of monies long overdue from Fat-Cats, Speculators, Bankers, Corrupt Politicians and cynical tax avoiders such as U2.

The Irish Republic is entitled to, and hereby claims, the allegiance of every Irishman and Irishwoman. The Republic guarantees religious and civil liberty, equal rights and equal opportunities to all its citizens, and declares its resolve to pursue the happiness and prosperity of the whole nation and all of its parts, cherishing all of the children of the nation equally and oblivious of the differences carefully fostered by an inept government, which have divided a minority from the majority in the past.

Until our cries have brought the opportune moment for the establishment of a permanent National, representative of the whole people of Ireland and elected by the suffrages of all her men and women, with fair and equitable taxation for all who hold her citizenship even if they do only “fly in and out for board meetings” the Irish people will never trust in the oireachtais.

We place the cause of the Irish Republic under the protection of the people of Ireland. Whose blessing we invoke upon our pleas, and we pray that no one who serves that cause will dishonour it by cowardice, inhumanity, or allow themselves to be bought by the specious promises of  self – serving politicians seeking re-election. In this supreme hour the Irish nation must, by its valour and discipline and by the readiness of its children to sacrifice themselves for the common good, prove itself worthy of the august destiny to which it is called.

Signed on Behalf of the Irish Republic
