The Granville Hotel Document

To Fellow Campaigners and Fellow Citizens, We would like to commence this communication with a Sincere Acknowledgement and Appreciation of the Struggles of all National Campaigners even those with only recent participation better late than never. We believe as long as there are Campaigners like you striving for Something Better this Country will always have Hope, but that Hope will only ever become a prelude to a reality when the entire Nation strives for it. This is why we are appealing to all Campaigners to work together Nationally to Inspire and Facilitate the General Public at large to participate in a National Day of Unity. For us personally, as Irish Citizens and Campaigners the Capitulation and Outsourcing of our Sovereign Responsibilities to a Governing Elite and our Insistence to be led by them is totally alien to us because there is absolutely no Political Ideology, or Leadership more important than the Ideals of Justice, Fairness and Equality, Democracy, and Liberty and it is to these Ideals, and these Ideals only that We pledge our allegiance to. It is with these Ideals in mind now that we would like to see the inclusion of a Citizens Signature Referendum Mechanism enshrined in our Constitution (see Article 27 Amendment) that could be enacted by a percentage of our Citizen’s signatures to Facilitate the outcome of National Referendums on any Issues of National or International Importance. We believe the inclusion of such a mechanism enshrined in our Constitution followed by an Adequate Period of Impartial and Professional Debate and Deliberations on the Issues or Issue would allow us the Sovereign Citizens of this...

A National Day Of Unity

A National Day of Unity will require Fellow Brothers and Sisters Families and Friends to take to the streets of Towns, Villages, and Cities, across the Nation on a given day to Facilitate and Celebrate the Establishment of what myself and Joe Guilfoyle and all of the Great Campaigners we have had the privilege to meet over the years consider to be the most Important Component of any True Republic and that is of course a United People looking out for one another. Such an event would clearly re-establish a sense of Pride in Ourselves and our Country and draw a line under the Destructive Retrograde Aspects of our Culture that would then lay the foundation for the emergence of a True Democratic and Progressive Republic and all that that would entail. The days of casting our votes and hoping for the best must come to an end because the Solutions Required for our many Social and Economic Problems and the Development and Modernization of the entire Country do not exclusively lay at the heart of any particular Political Ideology who are after all merely the facilitators of an outcome, but more importantly lays with the Implementation of the Right Progressive Policies, for the Right Progressive Results that are in the Best Interests of this Country and all of its citizens. So Crucially it is us the Sovereign Citizens who must decide what those Progressive Policies should be and us the Sovereign People with one United Voice must Demand the Implementation of such Policies because a Political System not held to account by its Electorate is a Governance that has no Meaning, Purpose or Direction that...

Betrayal

Oh omit the Words that Passion Evoke, for Liberty, Old Eireann Alone against an Empire Spoke. Oh omit the Spectre of Valour that intent a Murderous Hand, that cast a Grieving Sorrow to Free Old Ireland. Oh omit the Hearts that Loved this land,. oh Hearts drew Death in Easter Stand, guided, lead pierced aim, by Foreign Command. Oh omit my Seething Dark that Enrages Within, and may the “Treacherous Govern Cast, no shameful Loss, not Win. M.P.Walsh September 2009 Prior To The Lisbon Treaty 2 There is absolutely no Legal, Political, Moral or Fellow Citizens view point that can refute the fact that the Lisbon Treaty is an Undemocratic Process. It’s Current Architects have denied many Citizens their Right to vote and has Arrogantly Ignored those who have, this is not the basics for Trust, Transparency or Accountability, on any Issue period, and will be dogged by Mistrust and Strife. As long as the European Project remains a process by the Elite, for the Elite, it is doomed to Fail at Enormous Cost to the Citizens of Europe. This is why we must hold out for a  Democratic Europe, anything less will be a Betrayal and Sell Out of such an Aspiration, only a process by the People, for the People, will achieve slow but assured Democratic Objectives. As for all those who now Conspire to Promote the Betrayal of my Countries hard won Democracy and Freedom, I hold in Contempt in the Highest Order. On Reflection 03/10/2009 Is Eireann a Helpless Tizzied Mistress, who depends on her Foreign Suitor to pay her way? Or is Eireann a “Man with...

Evolution, And An Aspiration For Something Better

I am not an Irish Republican myself, although this is probably due to the fact that I have had the Good Fortune to be born and reared on a part of this Island that was Free from the Oppression and illegal occupation of English Rule. I was however Very Much Opposed to English Rule on this Island, and would have been today if it were not for the Courageous Leadership taken by the Protestant and Catholic Elect, to Establish what I personally consider to be an Evolutionary Process that will in time Unify this Island and all of it’s People. I can though unlike some Southern Critics more than Fully Appreciate the Level of Frustration that some Fellow North Eastern Citizens are having with the slow pace of Change with this Process, but that’s what it is Change, and to take the Life of a Fellow Human Being in the name of the Irish Republic in the Ireland of today is in my Opinion, Unnecessary so therefore Amoral. My own personal views of the English Ruling Classes of the past and relatively recent past, was one of Arrogance, Hypocrisy and Oppression. While their Brave and Courageous People Fought and Died in two World Wars, for the Democracy and Freedom of Humanity, their Governing Ruling Classes, with their Pompous, Grandiose Speeches of fighting them on the beaches while Simultaneously Imposing their Will on Nations like Ireland, was Profoundly Hypocritical and Arrogant. I do not see that Arrogance though in the English Governance of today; in its place I see Hope, Potential, Opportunity. Opportunity to Change things utterly for the Better....

A Deafening Shameful Silence

It is fair to say that the Minority of our Fellow Citizens who have Campaigned against Some of the Many Failures of the State over the years, on this Island, consisted of Close Family Friends and Relatives of those Most Afflicted by those Failures, and some Fellow Citizens like myself who were outraged at the lack of Political Will to resolve those Issues, and knowing that our Failure to do so would probably one day result in those Failures Afflicting us or Someone we Care about. As for the Majority of our Fellow Citizens, many of whom now find themselves Angered in Incrimination, we have had a Deafening Shameful Silence, and Apathetic Indifference, over the years, and it is these aspects of our Culture along with our Tribal Divided Political blind Loyalties and Begrudging Self-Interests, that is at the Root Cause of all that Ails this Country, and not our Inept and Corrupt Bankers, Politicians and Developers, etc. who are merely a consequence of our Deafening Shameful Silence. These are the aspects of our Culture I was referring to when I wrote about a Culture Revolution, and it is these aspects of our Culture that myself and Joe and Others want to see the back of, because we know nothing is going to change for the better on this Island until we change these aspects of our Culture for the better and see it into fruition by having a National Day of Unity across the Island of Ireland. The cause Joe and myself and Others have pursued was and still is to the best of our abilities a quest for Justice and Fairness for all, and to see the Establishment of a True...
