Commentary From The Cedar Lounge Revolution
28th August 2017
Many thanks to the person who forwarded this to the Archive.
This short eight page document was produced seemingly in response to the talks in the late 1980s and very early 1990s that were a part of the peace process. In particular it fixes upon the statement by the British government that it had ‘no selfish strategic or economic interest’ in staying in Ireland.
The pamphlet is scathing about the prospects of such talks and restates Republican Sinn Féin policy on these matters. It argues for the establishment of a Constituent Assembly, the drafting of a new 32-county Constitution, a declaration by the British government to withdraw its forces within twelve months of that Constitution being adopted and an amnesty for all political prisoners.
It argues that in such a context there ‘would be no necessity for the continuance of armed struggle’.
It also states that readers can contribute to peace by publicising the proposals.
