International Spirit of Eureka

One group of Australians who fought overseas will not get a mention today as they fought not for imperialism but against it in support of the Spanish Republic

These men and women – communists, trade unionists, republicans, socialists and anarchists are the true heirs to the international spirit of Eureka. 

The following fell in Spain.

At least 14 nameless Australians died upon the City of Barcelona ship on the 30th of May 1937 when it was torpedoed by a fascist submarine. The ship had been bringing over 200 international volunteers from France when it was sunk of Valencia.

In The Past Few Days Republicans in Derry Have Come Under ‘Sustained Aggression’ From The BRITISH CROWN FORCES

Homes have been raided, young republicans have been arrested, stopped, searched. Vulnerable people have had their homes raided and they too have been detained under “anti-terrorism” legislation.

Babies, just a few months into this world, have been forced to the street with their mothers whilst their fathers are dragged away by masked and armed members of Stormont’s military wing whilst at the same time ransacking their homes.

This is real, this is happening everyday. This is what republicans have to deal with. There won’t be condemnation from those is supposed positions of power. It will be met with a wall of silence. Although when republicans react to such state force provocation the great and good trip over themselves to whinge and cry about bogey men “living in the past”.

Just the other week Sinn Fein’s Martina Anderson was wailing like an oul banshee about what “armoured cars, tanks and guns” couldnt do. If she opened her eyes she would see they are doing plenty on her very own streets. This isn’t living in the past.

This is present day realities. Republicans are well fit to face this. We are more than capable of facing down Stormont’s armed mercenaries. Solidarity to all those on the receiving end of this onslaught.

I destroy homes, I tear families apart, I take your children, and that’s just the start!

I’m more costly than diamonds, more precious than gold,
The sorrow I bring is a sight to behold.

If you need me, remember I’m easily found,

I live all around you – in schools and in towns
I live with the rich, I live with the poor,
I live down the street, and maybe next door.

I’m made in a lab, but not like you think,
I can be made under the kitchen sink.
In your child’s closet, and even in the woods,
If this scares you to death, well it certainly should.

I have many names, but there’s one you know best,
I’m sure you’ve heard of me, my name is HEROIN.
My power is awesome, try me you’ll see,
But if you do, you may never break free.

Just try me once and I might let you go,
But try me twice, and I’ll own your soul.
When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie,
You do what you have to – just to get high.

The crimes you’ll commit for my narcotic charms
Will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms.
You’ll lie to your mother, you’ll steal from your dad,
When you see their tears, you should feel sad.

But you’ll forget your morals and how you were raised,
I’ll be your conscience, I’ll teach you my ways.
I take kids from parents, and parents from kids,
I turn people from God, and separate friends.

I’ll take everything from you, your looks and your pride,
I’ll be with you always – right by your side.
You’ll give up everything – your family, your home,
Your friends, your money, then you’ll be alone.

I’ll take and take, till you have nothing more to give,
When I’m finished with you, you’ll be lucky to live.
If you try me be warned – this is no game,
If given the chance, I’ll drive you insane.

I’ll ravish your body, I’ll control your mind,
I’ll own you completely, your soul will be mine.
The nightmares I’ll give you while lying in bed,
The voices you’ll hear, from inside your head.

The sweats, the shakes, the visions you’ll see,
I want you to know, these are all gifts from me.
But then it’s too late, and you’ll know in your heart,
That you are mine, and we shall not part.

You’ll regret that you tried me, they always do,
But you came to me, not I to you.
You knew this would happen, many times you were told,
But you challenged my power, and chose to be bold.

You could have said no, and just walked away,
If you could live that day over, now what would you say?
I’ll be your master, you will be my slave,
I’ll even go with you, when you go to your grave.

Now that you have met me, what will you do?
Will you try me or not? It’s all up to you.
I can bring you more misery than words can tell,
Come take my hand, let me lead you to hell.

My tribute to Óglach Martin McGuinness

We started the day with heartbreaking news, tonight we ended it together as a community to remember Martin, the people’s hero.

Martin achieved so much for Ireland that others could not, he was pivotal throughout the Hunger Strike negotiations, & over the years he has even helped our small town in many ways. He was a soldier, a leader, a politician, & a peacemaker.

A true gentleman who always made time for Kevin’s family. Tonight it is Martin’s family who are in our thoughts & prayers.

Martin you will always be remembered in our hearts, and until we meet again, may God hold you in the palm of his hand.
Ar dheis Dé go raibh a anam 💚
