Members of Republican Sinn Fein attended the very successful annual William Wallace Commemorative March & Rally in Elderslie, Renfrewshire on Saturday, 23rd of August and sold copies of SAOIRSE. On this day 698 years ago William Wallace, was Judicially murdered on the direct orders of the English King Edward 1st at Smithfield in London.

Wallace, the Patriot who defied and fought the might of the invading English Army under the command of Edward 'Longshanks' for many long years was betrayed by Scots traitors and delivered into English hands.

This act of Judicial murder did not have the effect that King Edward intended. William Wallace became a martyr and a bright flaming beacon to the people of Scotland. The fires of patriotism thus kindled became a raging conflagation that culminated nine years later in the decisive victory of Bannockburn where the Scots and their Irish allies were victorious.

Let us remember him and his example with pride and imbue ourselves afresh with the desire to liberate our Celtic nations from the their foreign colonial yoke.
