Last night an éirígí banner on the Camloch rd had paint thrown over it in a cowardly late night attack. It's clear that anti-Republicans were responsible for this in an unsuccessful attempt to stop éirígí from spreading the message that British policing will never be acceptable to Republicans.
Those who carried out this attack wasted their time, i have spoken to several éirígí activists in Newry and they have an unlimited supply of these banners.
Are those responsible worried about the message that éirígí are putting across?
Do they fear the truth?
It's obvious that the irrelevants who done this are fearful of éirígí's potential and they are scared of the message that éirígí are sending to people.
At the end of the day these banners are only pieces of cloth but they are very effective at sending out a clear message to thousands of people.
If those responsible think that attacking Republican banners will silence Republican activists then they can think again, i have no doubt that this will only make the éirígí activists more determined to spread the Republican message.
We have a fair idea as to who was responsible for this as they didn't do a great job of covering their tracks and they will be challenged about it.
Republicans are in this for the long haul and won't be going anywhere and will continue to expose, oppose and highlight British policing in Occupied Ireland.
