“Past revolutions never die but are reborn in the hearts and actions of the new generations of revolutionaries.” as someone once said (me, just now!)
Moore Street – A Revolutionary Spark
The first week of 2016 has been one of inspiration. Communists, Anarchists, Republicans, Lefties, Gaeilgeoirí, musicians and those concerned about historical revisionism came together in resistance to the demolition of the last stand of the 1916 rising, the Moore Street terrace. Those of various political beliefs have travelled from all corners of the country, and further afield, to show solidarity with those occupying the terrace. It is inspiring to know that in time of need, despite our differences that we will unite under a common banner. I am certain that when the revolution arrives on our doorstep that we will be met with the same unity. Just like the various organisations that fought in the rising.
Moore Street is historically significant as it is where the leaders of the rising surrendered, present at the time of surrender were five of the signatories of the proclamation.
