The perfect response to England’s partition of Ireland, enacted December 23, 1920

 CAPITOL HILL— Saturday, August 29, 2020—The popular and fast-growing Irish  Internet Petition is now a video on social media.
The One Ireland petition — “Ireland, too, has the right to be One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”— has already been signed by over 15,000 people all across the globe. And now this video presentation is expected to significantly increase the number of Signers.
The video can be viewed at any of the following three links:

Fr. Sean McManus, President of the Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus, which is sponsoring the Petition said: “We are very grateful to the over 15,000 signers of the Petition. We see the Petition as the perfect response to England’s partition of Ireland, enacted December 23, 1920.”

 Fr. Mc Manus, who is also the narrator of the video, says in the video: “Everyone, Irish or not, who respects international human rights and national self-determination should be happy and proud to Sign this Petition.

While it is based on the famed American Pledge of Allegiance, it evokes the spirit of Martin Luther King, Jr. and his teaching on The Beloved Community—and Saint Pope John Paul II’s teaching that “peace is the fruit of solidarity.”

This Petition is about equality, justice, unity, and reconciliation—with liberty and justice for all.

And this Petition is particularly well-timed because December 23 is the100th Anniversary of England’s partition of Ireland. (I say “England” because we can hardly blame Wales or Scotland).

This Petition gives all of us the perfect response to England’s partition of Ireland… Let your area and the whole world know that you reject England’s cruel and undemocratic partition of Ireland. … That you stand for unity, not for outdated imperial division and partition.”
