Over 10,000 Proclamations Distributed
Tuesday July 04, 2006 02:27 by Cormac Ryan PRO éirígí - éirígí
City-wide Distribution Continues
The profile of the "Recalim the Republic" campaign is continuing to grow with one Proclamation for every 50 homes in Dublin already distributed by éirígí activists and supporters. Those interested in supporting the campaign or obtaining a copy of the Proclamation can contact éirígí below.
The number of poster-size copies of the 1916 Proclamations distributed by éirígí over the last month has now exceeded 10,000, with the most recent distribution seeing almost 2,000 homes in west Tallaght receiving their copies. This represents approximately one Proclamation for every fifty homes in the city. The response from people across Dublin has been overwhelmingly positive with many making financial donations to the campaign, thus ensuring that ever-larger number of Proclamations can be printed and distributed to homes across the city.
Who Owns Ireland?
This mass-distribution is part of the “Reclaim the Republic” campaign being run by éirígí to mark the ninetieth anniversary of the Easter Rising. The campaign is encouraging people to compare the Ireland of today with the Ireland envisioned by those who penned the Proclamation. The campaign is further asking what degree of Irish freedom has been achieved and whether the Ireland of today truly cherishes “all the children of the nation equally”.
By distributing so many copies of the 1916 Proclamation, a move which the Dublin government has noticeably shied away from, éirígí hopes to trigger an awareness of just how short modern-day Ireland falls from that hoped for by Connolly, Clarke and Pearse . When all of the pomp and ceremony of the Dublin government’s 1916 commemoration has faded there will still be serious questions to be answered about who has ownership of Ireland – Is it we the people or is it a privileged, wealthy elite?
Supporting the Republic
Displaying a copy of the Proclamation of the Irish Republic at home or in the workplace serves as an act of visible support for the ideals of 1916; an independent Ireland based upon equality, and provision for all of the people.
To date copies of the Proclamation have been distributed at shopping centres, in public houses, outside of cinemas, Croke Park and the GPO as well as door to door in housing estates.
Those individuals or groups wishing to assist the campaign can do so by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by phoning 086 236 72 98.
Get your Copy
Individuals interested in obtaining a copy of the Proclamation can do so by e-mailing or phoning details above. Those involved in sports clubs, community groups, resident’s associations, trade unions etc who are interested in distributing Proclamations within their own group should get in touch and let us know how many copies they require.
