Irish Anti-imperialist Forum 2013, Belfast, June 14/15

Irish Republican Alternative to the G8
Republican Sinn Féin will be holding an Irish Anti-Imperialist
Forum as a counter to the G8 Summit in June. The Anti-Imperialist
Forum/Republican Alternative to the G8 will take place in Belfast on
June 14 and 15. The forum will discuss all aspects of imperialism
both in terms of British imperialism in Ireland as well as the new
imperialism of the EU, ECB and IMF as experienced by the people of
the 26 Counties. Delegates from international anti-imperialist
organisations will provide a world perspective.
It is intended as a forum for political and community activists
from throughout Ireland and abroad to discuss the various political,
social and economic aspects of imperialism from both an Irish as well
as an international perspective. Such a debate can be used to chart a
way forward towards building an Irish and international alternative
to the neo-liberal political and economic policies of the G8 and
other trans global imperialist organisations.
Anti-Imperialist Forum: Towards a New Ireland and a better world
In a statement on March 1 the President of Republican Sinn Féin
Des Dalton said:
“In Western Europe Ireland is one of the few countries to suffer
the effects of both the old and new imperialisms. In the Six
Counties an abnormal and undemocratic statelet continues to deny
even the most basic of civil and political rights to those who even
voice support for the right of Ireland to national independence
whereas in the 26 Counties the new economic political and
imperialism of the troika of the EU/ECB/IMF is engaging in a
wholesale attack on the Irish people in order to bailout the
discredited and failed EU project.
“That is why the decision of the British Government to bring the
G8 Summit to Fermanagh, in British-Occupied Ireland, provides an
opportunity to draw international attention to the role played by
the two imperialisms in Ireland.”
“On June 14 and 15 Republican Sinn Féin are holding an Irish
Anti-Imperialist Forum as an Irish Republican Alternative to the G8
in Belfast. The forum will be a platform for discussion and debate
for anti-imperialist activists from Ireland and abroad to discuss
alternatives to the imperialist world order as represented by the G8
group of states.
“Delegates from abroad will provide an international perspective
and allow Ireland’s struggle against twin imperialisms to be
viewed in its international context.
“Imperialism is trans-global so consequently it is important that
progressive and anti-imperialist forces have a strong international
dimension also. In Ireland we must consider the political, social
and economic effects of imperialism and how we fight back.
“This involves considering every aspect, from building a radical
and effective trade union movement to harnessing the energy of the
many community activist groups and organisations in support of
building a New Ireland based on the principle of the 1916
Proclamation.
“If the words of the Proclamation: ‘We declare the right of the
people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland’ are to mean anything
that New Ireland must be a true political, social and economic
democracy.
“The issues facing Ireland today are many and varied from control
of our resources, the attacks on the health, education and ability to
care for our people must be resisted if future generations are not to
be condemned to live with the dark legacy of the EU/ECB.IMF troika.
The Stormont and Leinster House political class have betrayed the
interests of the Irish people to Westminster and Brussels
respectively.
“We are calling on those interested in contributing to the debate
on a New Ireland to join us in Belfast on June 14 and 15 and begin
the process of building a network of solidarity among all peoples
striving a New Ireland and a better world.
“Culminating with the annual Wolfe Tone commemoration in
Bodenstown on June 16 it will be truly a weekend suffused with the
spirit of anti-imperialism.”
More details of the Anti-Imperialist forum will be released over the
coming weeks.For more information see: http://iaf2013.rsf.ie/ and
