As noted in the document in the Archive, the BWIG although not a political party had an avowedly political stance. In the document it notes that:
The BWIG has been going since 1983. Our aim is to get people interested in what is happening in the North of Ireland to to win support for the struggle of the Irish people against British domination. We believe that there should be an end to the British military presence in the six counties of Northern Ireland and we support the Republican struggle for a united socialist Ireland free from British control.
