IAF 2013: Building the alternative to the G8!

In the course of recent weeks the English media was filled with reports from MI5 and the English government warning of republican and nationalist threats against the G8 summit to be held in County Fermanagh in June 2013.

On March 23 the Herald Scotland warned of “militant anti-capitalist threat to G8 summit”. Three days before UTV informed that “G8 security briefed on nationalist threat” and the Guardian quoted RUC sources that they plan to use drones to observe protesters during the G8 summit. Moreover in late February the Nolan Show on Radio Ulster discussed the potential threats to the G8 summit.

It comes as no surprise that the English government and the occupation forces in the 6 Counties fear militant and large-scale protests form nationalists, republicans and anti-capitalist protesters. The economic crisis turned into a crisis of the capitalist system. The ordinary people, the working class, the small farmers, all those who suffer most are forced to pay for the failed corrupt system of WTO and EU. It has happened in Ireland, in Spain, Portugal and Greece. Cyprus is just the most recent example and if we don’t organize ourselves it won’t be the last.

Indeed what the world leaders and the English forces of occupation need to fear most is a real political alternative to the system of occupation and exploitation. Republican Sinn Féin seeks to provide such an alternative to the people of Ireland. Our political and economic programs ÉIRE NUA and SAOL NUA provide a real alternative. They are the framework on which a truly democratic, independent, united and federal Ireland can be build.

The launch of the Seven Signatories Manifesto is just another essential step to develop a political alternative for the people. A first leaflet has been launched at Easter and further material will be launched at the Irish Anti-imperialist Forum 2013 in Belfast. The IAF will be held from Thursday, June 13, to June 15. It will be three days of discussion and exchange of experience with international comrades, political activists and republicans from all over Ireland.

By organizing the Irish Anti-imperialist Forum 2013 Republican Sinn Féin want to provide a political alternative to the G8 summit and the corrupt system of the superpowers. Only such a political alternative provides the foundation to win the hearts and minds of the Irish people. On this foundation we will build a New Ireland.

Republican Sinn Féin urges all republicans and progress people of Ireland and world-wide to support, promote and attend the IAF 2013. All relevant information will be provided over the coming weeks on www.iaf2013.rsf.ie. To get in contact with the organization committee write to: This email address is being protected from spambots.
