éirígí Newry Blog launched

In a welcome development, éirígí in Newry have launched a blog to keep the community up to date with relevant Republican news.

Local éirígí activists have also been distributing a local monthly newsletter every month without fail since April.

This newsletter provides the working class communities with invaluable up to date republican news, most of which the mainstream media and those in positions of power would rather keep out of sight. PSNI harassment, rise in unemployment figures, POW issues, continued British occupation, local activism and anti-social behaviour have all been covered to date.

These are all important issues and éirígí should be commended for keeping us up to date with important news.

This type of activism gives republicans a chance to interact with the ordinary working class people regarding ordinary everyday issues. There is nothing better than LOCAL Republican activists bringing local issues to the doorsteps.

July's edition which has just been distributed features articles about recent PSNI harassment, rising unemployment figures and the recent arson attack in Derrybeg

It's clear that this group is growing and gaining support and long may it continue
