Press Release

Republican Sinn Féin, Teach Dáithí Ó Conaill, 223 Parnell Street,
Dublin 1, Ireland

US State Department McCarthyism

Statement by Ruairí Ó Brádaigh, President, Republican Sinn Féin

Republican Sinn Féin is a separate and distinct political
organisation dedicated to the national liberation of Ireland. It has
no military wing nor is it the political wing of any other

The US State Department, which has been notoriously pro-British over
the decades, in its current report says that Republican Sinn Féin is
an alias for the Continuity IRA. This is a blatant misrepresentation
and an attempt to brand a long-standing Irish Republican organisation
as a candidate for the latest bout of McCarthyism under the cover of
the recent Patriot Act enacted since September 2001.

It also seeks to repress legitimate opposition to the Stormont
Agreement and the promotion of the ÉIRE NUA alternative to it. The
President of Republican Sinn Féin has been banned from the USA for
over 30 years and other leading members have been likewise excluded
in recent years.

This repression and misrepresentation will not deter our members from
their political activities at this time or in time to come.
