Since re-launching the Éire Nua campaign in the United States by the National Irish Freedom Committee (NIFC), the response has been positive. However, many Irish Americans are not aware of the occupied counties, or partitioning, or the British colony on Irish soil. Parliament’s Act of Ireland in 1920 undemocratically seized the six northeastern counties of Ireland: Antrim, Armagh, Derry, Down, Fermanagh and Tyrone for simply economic benefits, satisfying a minority transplanted English voters. In 1971, republican leaders, Ruairi O Bradaigh and Daithi O Conaill developed a governmental program known as Éire Nua. This program has been one of universal disbelief and dismay, having been deprived of the opportunity to evaluate Éire Nua. It has been subjected to a blanket suppression by the beneficiaries of status quo.
Established in 1971, Éire Nua seeks an All-Ireland Constitutional Convention leading to a four province, federal democratic Republic comprising of all Ireland.
Éıre Nua is endorsed by Cumann na Saoırse Náısıúnta, a U.S. based Irish Republican organization. CnSN believes the Good Friday Agreement, and the St. Andrews Accord, far from being the only path to peace, is actually postponing a true and lasting solution. The current “peace process” promises mutually contradictory goals to the opposing political and religious communities and has instituted those opposing ideologies in government and promoted apathy towards Irish unity among the people of Ireland and amongst the Irish Diaspora worldwide
Éıre Nua, unlike the Good Friday Agreement, is an Irish authored, Irish centered plan to establish a permanent peace in Ireland, not a temporary show of peace which will end when the rock-throwing youth growing up in the steadily increasing sectarian society, trades in their stones for guns. The “Big Lie” that the GFA is the only path to peace can be witnessed in our own Congressional Record of June 19th, 1973.
Éıre Nua remains the only plan for peace endorsed at any time by the Unionist community as acceptable in the event of a complete British withdrawal. As such, it holds credentials far surpassing the current process in potential to provide stability and facilitate the development of the Irish nation.
Éire Nua is a proposed governing format that offers a solution to the ongoing British occupation in Ireland and guarantees equality and maximum devolution of power at provincial and subsidiary levels in a unitary federal system comprising the four provinces of Ireland.
Éire Nua is not imposed, it is proposed. It is non-sectarian and inclusive.
