Many thanks to Liam O’R for forwarding this fascinating document from Provisional Sinn Féin in 1974. A short eight pages long and printed in seven languages, including Irish, it outlines ‘Proposals for Peace in a New Federal Ireland’. In essence it is an outline of the views contained in Éire Nua and argues against a ‘six-county parliament’, arguing that ‘any assembly based on the Six-County entity is inevitably doomed to failure’.
Interestingly it also reiterates the following policies:
Banks to be nationalised.
Mines and mining under public control for Irish profit.
A new Constitution through all-Ireland consultations.
A statute of basic citizens rights.
