RSF Protest Against US State Department in Edinburgh
28 Sep 2004
Irish Republicans stage protest outside the US Consulate in Scotland to draw attention to the US State Department's attempt to smear Republicans with the "terrorist" tag throughout the world.
FROM IRELAND IMC

PRESS RELEASE

Date: 25 September 2004

From: Republican Sinn Fein (Scotland)

Members of Republican Sinn Fein staged a picket
outside the American Consulate in Edinburgh this
morning. It was held to protest against the US State
Department's designation of our Party as a "terrorist"
organisation.

Republican Sinn Fein has no military wing nor is it
the political wing of any other organisation. It is
the oldest political party in Ireland and will be
celebrating its centenary next year.

We view this false claim as an attempt by the
pro-British US State Department to repress Republican
opposition to the Stormont Agreement. However this
misrepresentation shall not deter our members from
engaging in legitimate political activity, as is our
democratic right.

ENDS
