Love this appeal from the Socialist Workers Party to Sinn Fein members from 2005. It was distributed around the Sinn Fein Ard Fheis.
The Leaflet tells Sinn Fein Members all sorts about entering into coalition with Fianna Fail or power sharing with the DUP as well as plenty of other things. It end though by stating that the proper way forward is by “forging an alliance with the socialist organisations on the ground –rather the political scum who are attacking you today.
