26-County state signs up to EU army


Statement by the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton

“Another significant step towards the 26-County state’s participation in an EU army was taken with the Leinster House vote on December 7, 2017, in approving and signing up to PESCO, the EU’s military Defence pact. This marks further dilution of the neutrality of the 26-County state, opening the way for the absorption of the 26 Counties into the military force of an EU superstate.

A century ago John Redmond and the constitutional nationalist elite urged Irish youth to sacrifice themselves in the charnel house that was the imperialist First World War in the 21st Century. It seems the 26-County political establishment is prepared to sacrifice this and future generations in the interests of the new imperialism of the EU.”
