In 1916, the Irish Republic was declared by small group of dedicated militants. Central to this insurection against British rule was the Marxist James Connolly and the Irish Citizen Army–one of the first working-class armies. Connolly and several other ICA volunteers gave their lives for the cause of an independent socialist Ireland in which the nation and all its resources would belong to the people of Ireland. Long overdue to be realized, Connolly’s vision stands as a guide for Irish Republican Socialists in the continued struggle for national liberation and socialism.
Join us for a film and discussion on the role of James Connolly and the Irish Citizen Army in the international struggle against imperialism and capitalism.
