This statement was issued anonymously to The Sovereign Nation.

The leadership of Óglaigh na hÉireann extend revolutionary greetings to our volunteers and supporters on this the 90th anniversary of the Easter Rising. We offer our continuing condolences to the families of all those who have died in the pursuit of Irish freedom. Their memory is an inspiration to us all. We also send solidarity greetings to our imprisoned comrades at home and abroad. We salute your courage and your continued resistance to the policy of criminalisation.

The Republican position is again under threat by revisionists within the Free State establishment. Their attempts to misrepresent the Republican position will be exposed by those who still hold true to Republican ideals. This Easter those who have usurped Irish sovereignty will parade past the GPO and attempt to reclaim the legacy of 1916. Republicans will again resist the attempts of constitutional nationalists to portray themselves as the legitimate successors of Pearse and Connolly.

We remember with pride the ten Óglaigh na hÉireann and INLA volunteers who died 25 years ago in the pursuit of political status and we reaffirm, in their memory, our commitment to the ending of British rule in Ireland and the restoration of national democracy and national sovereignty.

Former comrades have usurped the constitution of Óglaigh na hÉireann and have accepted Britain's right to interfere in our affairs. This is an intolerable situation and the leadership of Óglaigh na hÉireann pledge to remain true to our constitution and its aims and objectives.

Irish sovereignty is being undermined on a daily basis, not only by the British Army in the north, but also by the American warplanes which land illegally in Shannon. Our national resources are being stolen by multinational capitalists and their Free State allies. Republicans stand for the complete ownership of Irish national territory and its resources for the benefit of the Irish people in accordance with the proclamation of the Republic.

The causes of the conflict in Ireland remain unchanged. Britain refuses to declare its intent to withdraw and the so called government of the Irish people refuses to demand their withdrawal. While this remains the case Óglaigh na hÉireann will continue to exist to defend Irish sovereignty and the Irish nation.
