new all Ireland political party launched, it hasn't been registered anywhere

Davy Jordan was elected its chairperson today facebook.com/Saoradh/ https://twitter.com/EireSaoradh

Saoradh - Press Release - 24/9/16

Today, Saturday the 24th of September 2016, we a significant collective of Irish Republican activists, who for a number of years have acted autonomously, have after a number of years of debate, consultation and organisation today in Ard Fheis organised, constituted and launched a Revolutionary Irish Republican Party, the Party’s name is Saoradh.

Saoradh believes that Ireland should be governed by the Irish People with the wealth and wealth producing mechanisms in the ownership of the Irish People. This can not happen while British imperialism undemocratically retains control of Irish destinies and partitions our nation, this cannot happen while a neocolonial elite in a subservient supposed indigenous administration sell’s the nation's labour and natural resources to international capital.

Saoradh does not believe that British imperialism or capitalist exploitation can be confronted in the structures they have created to consolidate their undemocratic control of the Irish nation. As such we believe any assembly claiming to speak for the Irish People without being elected by the united people of the Irish nation to be illegal. Saoradh will seek to organise and work with the Irish People rather than be consumed and usurped by the structures of Ireland’s enemy’s

Standing on a long and proud revolutionary Irish Republican history of resistance, inspired by the actions and words of Tone of Connolly of Mellow’s of Costello and of Sand’s, upholding the founding documents of our forefathers - the 1916 proclamation, the declaration of independence and the democratic programme of the first Dail, Saoradh hereby declares its commitment to the unfinished revolution, the liberation of Ireland and the social emancipation of the Irish People.

END

Saoradh will retain the right to fight elections where it is deemed, after consultation with the entire membership, to be strategically beneficial.

Saoradh will contest elections, should this be the case, to Westminster, Stormont and Leinster House on an abstentionist basis.

I admire their principles and values, but where do they stand on physical force? Is this a Republican Sinn Fein offshoot?

With Costello cited it sounds like the IRSP.

Is it supported by T. McKearney or B. McAliskey?

Where does it leave Eirigi?

Could be an amalgamation of the IRSP, Eirigi, 32 County SC, 1916 Societies and Republican Network for Unity. I'd like to see the formation of a party that has the capacity to attract a significant number of Protestants sympathetic to the Republican ideal. Further physical force groupings tend to scare the horses.

They've already been involved in violent action, they tried to strangle the English language in their public statement as shown in the first post here.
Is the Costello referred to John A by any chance ?
If only Dermot Morgan was still alive.

'Inspired by the actions and words of Sands' won't be doing much to attract Protestants.

Bobby Sands was almost a pure blood Ulster Scot; casting aside the stuff about the border and the Troubles on a universal human level his writings are deeply inspiring. That said I doubt this group actually wants to reach out to Prods and even if they did I suspect that they have nothing at all to offer them.

What an absolute bloody shower. One can imagine the line up at their first press conference Abstentionist representatives aren't worth a toss, but they're so principled it's their only course of action...pfft. Waffling on about "the unfinished revolution ", whatever that means, and the "liberation of Ireland", really, what does that mean? These people really are caught in a time warp

Regardless of what he wrote, Sands and his Provos are seen as a sectarian muder gang and despised by the vast majority of Protestants. He was in jail for his part in bombing a Protestant owned business ffs. How inspirational is that to Protestants!
