Irish Socialist Republicans (ISR) writes:

To counter the controversial 6 meter high statue of a British Soldier errected in Stephens Green, Irish Socialist Republicans have errected a series of large A1 posters around the Dublin City park that read, ‘Ireland Welcomes the Black and Tans- Murders, Rapists, Criminals, Terrorists!’

The posters have been errected to demonstrate opposition to the shameful glorification of Imperialist War and the slavish celebration of the British Military that the statue represents, a force that continues to maintain an illegal occupation of Ireland and is involved in illegal wars of conqest around the world.
