After closing most social pages connected with the 32 County Sovereignty Movement, a Facebook spokeswoman has revealed to The Irish News security correspondent, Connla Young, that they had reviewed our movement and determined it violated Facebooks dangerous organisations policy.

The Facebook spokeswoman further added “groups that proclaim a violent mission or are engaged in violence have no place on Facebook. As a result, this organisation has been banned from our platforms and we will remove any praise, support or representation of the group and it’s activities.”

We would like to state on record now that we are not a dangerous organisation, we are in no way whatsoever engaged in violence of any kind and we are not proclaiming any violent mission. These spurious accusations are defamatory and designed to fit the narrative being pushed by Britain and their collaborators here in Ireland.

What this essentially boils down to is black propaganda and political censorship, directed by British intelligence in their efforts to thwart anyone still upholding traditional Republican values.

We will take whatever action we deem necessary to highlight this issue and will continue unabated in our activities as a legitimate political pressure group.

Earlier today, Monday 20th September, we bacame aware that almost all Facebook social media pages connected with the 32 County Sovereignty Movement had been closed. This included members personal pages.

Page administrators received emails from Facebook alerting them that their personal pages may have been hacked and details would need verified before the pages would be unlocked. After going through this process, our members were able to gain access to their personal accounts however, page administrators noticed instantly and unsurprisingly, that the national 32csm page along with local cumann pages had been deleted.

This was a coordinated attack and connot be disguised as anything else. For Facebook to send emails to a number of our members claiming their accounts may have been accessed, coincidentally at the same time, and denies the involvement of other agencies, then it calls in to question the integrity of Facebooks security when handling our personal details.

This is not the first time such attacks have taken place against the Sovereignty Movement and what they amount to is political censorship, directed solely by British intelligence to try stop the Republican message getting out. We would like to reiterate to Facebook, do not pander to the demands of British intelligence services, we are not the enemy.

For now we will try to get the pages back however in the most likely case that we don’t, new pages will be opened. In the meantime our website will remain an active tool to publicise our content and further updates on this matter.

The following is the main oration read out at this years commemoration for Volunteer Alan Ryan, Dublin brigade Irish Republican Army.

Alan was murdered on September 3rd 2012 by cowardly criminal elements in Dublin who were working in tandum with counter-revolutionaries and the state (whose agents in special branch tried unsuccessfully to dissuade participants from the days commemoration via harassment at the gates of the cemetery ).

Alan's memory and deeds will live on and his name will be remembered along with all those martyrs who have given their lives in pursuit of freedom throughout the centuries.

Main Oration:

When we stand at the graves of our patriot dead our commitment to the republican cause should be measured by how far our efforts have advanced it.

When we stand at this particular patriot’s grave, our commitment needs to be measured by how far justice for this dual criminal act has been secured.

We have spoken long and in depth on the issue of republican unity. We have articulated well informed and pragmatic proposals that allows for such unity to evolve and progress.

But we cannot achieve this by failing to address injustice, and the perpetrators of that injustice, who presume to have a role in that process.

The murder of Volunteer Alan Ryan by rogue and criminal elements was a watershed event. Not addressing it in the terms that it needed to be addressed was equally such an event. That stigma weighs like an anchor. It is an anchor which needs to be lifted.

Irish republicanism is confronted by modern dilemmas which require a contemporary response. We are right, but irrelevant. We are as one, but do not recognise it.

History and ideology have a role in resolving those dilemmas but unless we grasp the nettle of pragmatic engagement with each other the opportunities available to us now will be lost.

Our role as revolutionaries is not to critique the status quo, but to exploit it. That can only happen through activism.

Prolonged analysis of current events only leads to apathy and stagnation. Trying to gain relevance by attacking those who are inconsequential is self-defeating.

Those who have influence over the national narrative and the national direction are those whom we need to strategise against.

Language is not neutral in our struggle. The terminologies that republicans used prior to the Good Friday Agreement are the terminologies that out opponents are using today.

Irish unity is too vague a concept to have any revolutionary merit. As it stands the term is now used by the Dublin Government to abdicate themselves from actually pursuing it.

Irish unity is being widely talked about, but Irish sovereignty is not. This is the critical difference. To give our position a distinction we cannot get lost in a battle of semantics.

We are struggling for the establishment of a sovereign republic within which the carefully fostered differences between our people can be finally resolved.

The violation of our sovereignty is the root cause of the Anglo-Irish conflict. Partition is the current manifestation of that occupation. Its centenary was marked by rioting from those it was implemented to appease.

It has failed all the people of Ireland. There is no democratic redemption for it. We cannot speak of democratic solutions where the democratic goalposts are in constant flux, to favour one constitutional position over another.

Partition, at its strategic core, is counter-democratic because it seeks to maintain a British gerrymander in Ireland. The Good Friday Agreement is the driving force behind that counter democratic process.

A sovereign Irish republic is the only constitutional arrangement which can deliver and develop a genuine Irish democracy. This is the core position around which Irish republicans must articulate distinct and persuasive arguments.

Our language must change before our arguments can hope to obtain change. We want a sovereign Ireland. We want a sovereign Republic. We want a sovereign democracy for the Irish people.

Beir Bua!
