Condemnation of attack on IRWG member
Socialist Democracy condemns absolutely the recent physical attacks and death threats against Anthony McIntyre, a member of the Irish Republican Writers Group, by a Sinn Fein supporter who had been involved in earlier acts of physical intimidation against the writer.
Our condemnation is all the stronger when we learn of Sinn Fein statements following the attack which effectively justify the assault.
It was claimed that the Good Friday Agreement would democratise the North. Instead it appears that those who criticise the settlement and organise politically against it have to face not only the British and the RUC, but goons anxious to punish anyone who criticises Sinn Fein.
