INTERNATIONAL DEPARTMENT OF THE 32 COUNTY SOVEREIGNTY MOVEMENT HOLDS COMMEMORATIONS FOR THE VICTIMS OF THE ENGLISH GENOCIDE OF 1847 ACROSS CANADA

Today, international day to commemorate the 1847 genocide of the Irish people by England, the international department of the 32 County Sovereignty Movement held actions in Toronto, Kitchener and Montreal.

In Montreal, under the pouring rain, a small group gathered at the Irish mass grave, and sang a song at the monument erected there by Irish workers in the 1850s.

In Kitchener, a group of people went to the Farmers Market and disrupted business as usual, while passing out over 200 flyers.
n Toronto, the march began at the British Consulate, and continued onto Ireland Park, where another Irish mass grave is located.

There will also be a religious service, a mass, held in honour of the 6 million Irish that perished or were displaced because of this genocide in Kitchener.

Refugees fleeing from the English Genocide were forced to cross the Atlantic in terrible conditions. Many of them died on the way, and upon arrival.

We have listened to our Irish comrades, and we refused to revise history and call it a famine when it was a genocide. Just as today, we refused to recognize the legitimacy of the Good Friday Agreement as a step towards peace, when in reality it simply entrenches war even further into Ireland, pushing Ireland away from reunification,sovereignty and socialism.

We salute all the Irish people that resisted British colonialism, and that still do to this day. We must unmask the past and present of British colonialism and European imperialism, until Ireland has it’s own 32 county Socialist Republic.
