Letter in reply to “Seán Mac Stíofáin: An Unyielding Revolutionary”

“I must be honest and say that, like many others, I disagree with what I read as an unfairly generous appraisal of an anti-communist republican.

A Train to Class: A Snowpiercer Review

As Snowpiercer is trending again, we’ve published a review looking at the ideological themes of the show.

Just like now, we see the struggle by a slim minority of us to maintain, sustain and develop an organic link to our class and ultimately facilitate the empowerment and emancipation of our class.

It’s the Wrong Uncle Joe in the White House

Contrary to widespread belief and misinformation from the far right, Joe Biden and the Democrat Party are neither left wing nor communists, in fact, they are politically and economically identical to their Republican counterpart. They simply wrap themselves in the flag of social justice and smile at you while they deprive you or drone strike villages in the Middle East.

The Killing of George Nkencho

The recent shooting of George Nkencho has re-started the debate regarding Black Lives Matter, racism, the role of the Gardaí and all lives/white lives matter. The Connolly Youth Movement has had a few members attend the recent solidarity vigils and many of us have engaged in extensive debate with members of the public.
