Republican Newry Says No to the PSNI

14/02/10

With the Six County establishment parties scrambling desperately to secure their shady deal on the PSNI and sectarian marches, éirígí’s Different Name, Same Aim campaign reached Newry during the week.

éirígí activists in the city unveiled a number of banners proclaiming British Police Out of Ireland and RUC-PSNI: Different Name, Same Aim on Camloch Road, Derrybeg and Ray McCreesh Park in Patrick Street. More banners are to be erected in the area in the coming weeks, while thousands of leaflets will be distributed highlighting the unchanged paramilitary nature of the PSNI.

éirígí general secretary Breandán Mac Cionnaith said: “éirígí will be rolling its Different Name, Same Aim campaign out across the Six Counties in the coming weeks. Our activists in Newry will undoubtedly play a prominent role in this campaign and they are to be commended for getting the message out that republican Newry is implacably opposed to the activities and existence of the PSNI.

“The PSNI is an irreformable, paramilitary, sectarian force that has, as its primary objective, the protection of the British occupation. The devolution of limited policing and justice powers to Britain’s Stormont administration, if it ever happens, will not alter this reality.

“Even after devolution, the head of the PSNI would still be accountable to the British secretary of state in matters relating to what is euphemistically ‘national security’, but what is, in fact, the interests of the British state in Ireland. The PSNI would still work hand-in-glove with MI5 and the British army and protect the profits of the business class.

“This is why éirígí is making the battle against the political police a key part of its campaign for a British withdrawal from occupied Ireland.”
