Capitol Hill. Monday, August 31, 2020— England’s partition of Ireland is universally seen to be a perfect example of the ” hubris of Empire.” And now there is a video on social media networks to prove it!
The Capitol Hill-based Irish National Caucus is promoting a ONE IRELAND internet Petition :”Ireland, too, has the right to be One Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” The Petition has been signed by over 15,000 people—with many more to come—dedicated to justice, equality, unity, solidarity and international human rights.
Fr. Sean McManus, Caucus president said:”Our Petition is the perfect response to the upcoming 100th Anniversary of England’s disastrous and undemocratic partition of Ireland, enacted Thursday, December 23, 1920. We put up a video, ‘One Ireland Petition’ (3 minutes and 22 seconds) on social media networks on Saturday, August 29, 2020—https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlIzvDzNF2Y
And today, Monday, August 31, 2020, we put up another video ‘England’s Partition of Ireland’ (5 minutes and 31 seconds)—https://youtu.be/B6Etux7szuc
Fr. McManus concluded:” We think signing this Petition this is an excellent and responsible way for Irish-Americans, the Irish in Ireland, and the Irish worldwide to express their feelings about England’s cruel and undemocratic partition of Ireland.”
