An Phoblacht – April/Aibreán – Issue out now… March 31, 2012

Posted by WorldbyStorm in An Phoblacht, Sinn Féin.

From the editorial:

The same bullying approach by the political establishment will be evident again, over the next few weeks and months, as they attempt to coerce voters into endorsing the Eurozone Austerity Treaty on 31 May.

This treaty seeks to surrender what limited fiscal power remains in the hands of Irish people to unelected officials in Brussels. It is anti-growth and anti-jobs and if ratified will place an economic straightjacket on Ireland for decades and lead to further austerity, more unemployment and more emigration.

Issue includes:

The Neo-Con, Brit faux elite mind-set seems catching: Trust them and this will be expunged from Alba come the independence referendum.

Meantime, trust you sort out your own gang of variants & hope a new political paradigm is being forged on these isles that will consign the whole shebang of them to the historical garbage can.

Fair play to her – it’s what happens when you mix an outdated medical procedure and religious dogma.

I’ve only ever seen honour Ireland’s dead before. Is honour Ireland’s heroes new, or have I just missed it?

‘New US film by Tea Party darlings from Tyrone and Donegal is backing fracking’-intriguing.

‘Truly Remarkable’ – Unionist reaction to Declan Kearney’s An Phoblacht article

I’m guessing they ignored the unionist politicians’ response.


Mick - April 3, 2012

Ciaran, I’m guessing you didn’t read the article because if you did you would see that An Phoblacht didn’t ignore unionist politicians’ response. But it is worth noting that unionism is bigger and broader than individual unionist politicians! Perhaps you should read it – http://www.anphoblacht.com/contents/1390
