State Repression Intensifies Against Irish Republican Socialists

Despite what the Establishment Parties in Ireland would have you believe, political policing has never ceased and has recently been on the rise in both the
occupied six counties and the Free State. The suppression of alternative political beliefs and views has been at the top of the agenda of both the PSNI and An Garda Siochana, at a time when the
never ending and ever increasing flaws of both puppet governments’ on this island has been all too clear for the people of Ireland to see.

In the Free State, where resistance to the anti working class decision of charging people for the use of water, has become stronger and stronger, activists
have been trailed from their homes by the Gardai, brought to court and handed large fines and at times, prison sentences. Solely due to protesting against
the decision of the capitalist Free State Administration to bleed more money out of ordinary people who simply have no more money to give.


In the North, the persecution and harassment of anti Good Friday Agreement Republicans has become a daily occurrence. At a time when Stormont flounders from
one petty sectarian argument to the next, and with politicians who serve no-one only their massive ego’s and wallets, the armed wing of the British State in
Ireland (PSNI) and their masters in Mi5, have been to the fore in trying to intimidate Republican activist’s and their families. Dozens of Republican
Socialist Activists homes have been torn apart in the last 2 months. Many stop and searches and Mi5 approaches have been conducted against members of the
IRSP and other Republican groups.


The Establishment Parties at Stormont and Leinster House have remained tight lipped and silent on these serious issues, sadly including many ‘Republicans’ who
were once subjected to the same harassment for their beliefs.

Their silence is deafening!
