Here are a few quotes relating to my recent hungerstrike articles:
Among the best traitors Ireland has ever had, Mother Church
ranks at the very top; a massive obstacle in the path to equality and freedom.
-Bernadette Devlin McAliskey
In a physical contest on the field of battle it is allowable to use tactis and strategy, to retreat as well as advance, to have recourse to a ruse as well as open attack; but in matters of principle
there can be no tactics, there is one straight forward course to follow and that course must be found and followed without swerving to the end.
-Terence MacSwiney, 1920
If our last bullet had been fired, our last shilling spent & our last man were lying on the ground with his enemies howling round him with the bayonets raised ready to plunge into his body, that man should say – true to the tradition handed down – if they say to him “Now, will you come into our Empire” – he should and he would say “No, I will not.”
-Cathal Brugha, 1921
You have got your pound of flesh, now give us our rights, Do not for one minutes think that we will allow you to rob us of our principles. There are more Bobby Sands in these Blocks and we will continue to die if need be to safeguard these principles.
-Republican Prisoners in Long Kesh, May 7th, 1981
Let the fight go on.
