  • This activity is in every sense non-republican and counter revolutionary. Republicans of all hues need to stick together, as much as is possible in the same sense as the Labour party has many different shades of red and other more radical parties within its ranks. British sinn fein are where they are now, as a direct result of the ultimate sacrifices and hard work of previous generations of traditional Irish republicans most of whom were interned like Stephen at one time or another. Stephen comes from a traditional Irish republican family with a noble history so does Conor Murphy, this simply makes no sense what so ever!

    This divisive activity is playing into the Brits hands. Stephen Murney is a victim of British neo-colonial repression in Ireland. The Unionists may have serious divisions among themselves but at the end of the day they know when to keep their powder dry and will always stick together that is why they are able to dominate. A delegation on behalf of Stephen Murney needs to visit Conor Murphy's clinic and discuss this with him and take notes with a view to as much unity as is possible.

    At the end of the day we are all Irish and claim to be republican.The British have worked night and day fro 800 years to divide us and have us at each other's throats. Ii is time to be smarter, put our ego's to one side and look for the common ground we have without surrendering long term principles.Those who engage in this activity need to remember, the street is always watching and does not forget!

    Is mise le meas,
