Cool IRA зовет!

Вобщем, получила на днях загадочное послание из далекой страны:% Привожу текст:

Today, Gerry Adams publicly addressed the IRA through a press release.

It is an unambiguous summary of the situation through the past 30-plus
years to the current stalemate.

However, this statement is in itself an extraordinary, unprecedented
event and is indicative of potential future events in the near future.
However, speculating is a waste of time and counter productive.

Media bias, political cant and speculation needs to be treated as
totally unreliable.

Stay tuned.

The following is the text of an address directed to the Irish
Republican Army by Sinn F?in President Gerry Adams:

I want to speak directly to the men and women of Oglaigh na hEireann,
the volunteer soldiers of the Irish Republican Army.

In time of great peril you stepped into the Bearna Baoil, the gap of
danger. When others stood idly by, you and your families gave your
all, in defence of a risen people and in pursuit of Irish freedom and

Against mighty odds you held the line and faced down a huge military
foe, the British crown forces and their surrogates in the unionist
death squads.
Eleven years ago the Army leadership ordered a complete cessation of
military operations. This courageous decision was in response to
proposals put forward by the Sinn Fein leadership to construct a peace
process, build democratic politics and achieve a lasting peace.

Since then despite many provocations and setbacks the cessation has
And more than that, when elements within the British and Irish
establishments and rejectionist unionism delayed progress, it was the
IRA leadership which authorised a number of significant initiatives to
enhance the peace process. On a number of occasions commitments have
been reneged on. These include commitments from the two governments.

The Irish Republican Army has kept every commitment made by its
leadership. The most recent of these was last December when the IRA
was prepared to support a comprehensive agreement. At that time the
Army leadership said the implementation of this agreement would allow
everyone, including the IRA, to take its political objectives forward
by peaceful and democratic means.

That agreement perished on the rock of unionist intransigence. The
shortsightedness of the two governments compounded the difficulties.
Since then there has been a vicious campaign of vilification against
republicans, driven in the main by the Irish government. There are a
number of reasons for this.

The growing political influence of Sinn Fein is a primary factor. The
unionists also for their part, want to minimise the potential for
change, not only on the equality agenda but on the issues of
sovereignty and ending the union.

The IRA is being used as the excuse by them all not to engage properly
in the process of building peace with justice in Ireland.

For over thirty years the IRA showed that the British government could
not rule Ireland on its own terms. You asserted the legitimacy of the
right of the people of this island to freedom and independence. Many
of your comrades made the ultimate sacrifice.

Your determination, selflessness and courage have brought the freedom
struggle towards its fulfillment.

That struggle can now be taken forward by other means. I say this with
the authority of my office as President of Sinn Fein.

In the past I have defended the right of the IRA to engage in armed
struggle. I did so because there was no alternative for those who
would not bend the knee, or turn a blind eye to oppression, or for
those who wanted a national republic. Now there is an alternative.

I have clearly set out my view of what that alternative is. The way
forward is by building political support for republican and democratic
objectives across Ireland and by winning support for these goals

I want to use this occasion therefore to appeal to the leadership of
Oglaigh na hEireann to fully embrace and accept this alternative.

Can you take courageous initiatives which will achieve your aims by
purely political and democratic activity? I know full well that such
truly historic decisions can only be taken in the aftermath of intense
internal consultation. I ask that you initiate this as quickly as

I understand fully that the IRAs most recent positive contribution to
the peace process was in the context of a comprehensive agreement. But
I also hold the very strong view that republicans need to lead by

There is no greater demonstration of this than the IRA cessation in
the summer of 1994.

Sinn Fein has demonstrated the ability to play a leadership role as
part of a popular movement towards peace, equality and justice. We are
totally commited to ending partition and to creating the conditions
for unity and independence. Sinn Fein has the potential and capacity
to become the vehicle for the attainment of republican objectives.

The Ireland we live in today is also very different place from 15
years ago. There is now an all-Ireland agenda with huge potential.

Nationalists and republicans have a confidence that will never again
allow anyone to be treated as second class citizens. Equality is our

The catalyst for much of this change is the growing support for
republicanism. Of course, those who oppose change are not going to
simply roll over. It will always be a battle a day between those who
want maximum change and those who want to maintain the status quo. But
if republicans are to prevail, if the peace process is to be
successfully concluded and Irish sovereignty and re-unification
secured, then we have to set the agenda - no one else is going to do

So, I also want to make a personal appeal to all of you - the women
and men volunteers who have remained undefeated in the face of
tremendous odds.
Now is the time for you to step into the Bearna Baoil again; not as
volunteers risking life and limb but as activists in a national
movement towards independence and unity.

Such decisions will be far reaching and difficult. But you never
lacked courage in the past. Your courage is now needed for the future.

It won't be easy. There are many problems to be resolved by the people
of Ireland in the time ahead. Your ability as republican volunteers,
to rise to this challenge will mean that the two governments and
others cannot easily hide from their obligations and their
responsibility to resolve these problems.

Our struggle has reached a defining moment.

I am asking you to join me in seizing this moment, to intensify our
efforts, to rebuild the peace process and decisively move our struggle
По-моему довольно забавно... восстановление мира-равенства - и справедливости МИР-ТРУД-МАЙ какой-то...
