‘Nationalism – a political poison’ warning

Theobald Wolfe Tone

The Party’s annual Wolfe Tone commemoration, held this year under current Covid guidelines, was addressed by Workers Party and Central Executive Committee member Gerry Lynch (Dublin).

Highlighting the toxicity of all forms of nationalism and the damage it can cause to class based politics. Gerry said,

“Nationalism – both British and Irish – is a political poison that stands in the way of uniting Irish workers, just as it divides workers across the globe. It is something that we must strive at every turn to combat, and we must never give an inch in our struggle against it.

We have seen time and again where that path leads. For us the lessons of Tone and the United Irishmen lies in internationalism and social progress”.

  1. the message of Wolfe tone will never be outdated if we cannot unite Catholics Protestants Dissenters,and the working class if we cannot show empathy for the poor the homeless we cannot call ourselves socialist,hard task but we must strive to achieve this aim.
