“Somewhere and somehow, and by somebody, a beginning must be made” – Fintan Lalor
éirígí is an Irish socialist republican political party formed in Dublin in April 2006 – coinciding with the ninetieth anniversary of the 1916 Rising. éirígí wants to see an end to the British occupation of the Six Counties and the dismantling of the unjust socio-economic system that currently exists in both the Six and Twenty-Six Counties.
éirígí supports the creation of a new all-Ireland Democratic Socialist Republic based on the principles of sovereignty, democracy, liberty, justice, equality, community and international solidarity.
éirígí believes that such a republic represents the only viable model for the people of Ireland to reach their fullest potential, both collectively as a nation and as individual human beings.
From its original Dublin base éirígí has grown steadily and is now active in many parts of Ireland, including counties Antrim, Armagh, Cork, Donegal, Down, Fermanagh, Sligo, Tyrone and Wicklow.
Since its foundation éirígí has campaigned on a wide variety of issues relating to both the British occupation and socio-economic issues. Full details of éirígí’s campaigns can be viewed here.
Mass Movement For Justice
This co-operation and outreach to other progressive forces cannot be restricted to the island of Ireland. The fight against capitalism and imperialism is by necessity a global one. The emergent global justice movement represents a real and growing bulwark to oppression and exploitation throughout the world. We in éirígí believe that it is from within this movement that a new and truly progressive era of international co-operation and solidarity will emerge. éirígí is committed playing an active role within this movement.
