  1. Petition launched against royal visit

    Ireland: Republicans launched an online petition today as part of a campaign against the planned state visit to the 26 counties by British head of state Elizabeth Windsor, which was confirmed over the weekend.

    The petition demands that Enda Kenny and his incoming government abandon plans for the visit, which is scheduled to take place in May.

    Launching the petition Brian Leeson of left-wing republican group Eirigi said: “The political elite and large sections of the corporate media cannot contain their excitment at the prospect of seeing a ‘British Queen’ paraded through the streets of Dublin.

    “They conveniently ignore the fact that she is the commander in chief of the British army which continues to occupy part of our country and that she is an apologist for war crimes committed by her troops in Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.”
