July’s An Phoblacht
‘What now?’ after the sensational election results
GERRY ADAMS leads the July front page with the declaration:
“We must deliver… Sinn Féin needs to be ready for government on our terms, agree our policy priorities and political platform, and our commitments need to be deliverable.
We are ambitious for change and believe we can deliver on jobs, housing and health.”
Of particular interest may be the following [WBS]:

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