Support For The Treaty By Trade Union and Labour Leaders Signified a Definitive Going Over To the Side of Capitalism–This has continued ever since!!!

The period 1918- 1922 was a period in which unprecedented social upheaval took place together with the military campaign for Irish independence.  All these processes were linked. Irish independence could only be achieved by ending British rule. As British laws governed economic and political life, grievances of workers, small farmers and small business people could only be eliminated by resisting British rule and combining together to fight its local agents. Any suggestion that the war of Independence consisted solely or mainly of guerrilla warfare with passive support from the population is totally untrue.
