Green Isle dispute is battle in economic war

Statement by the President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton

During a visit to the striking Green Isle workers in Naas Co Kildare on February 26 -where he met with the two hunger striking workers Jim Wells and John Guinan (February 26)- the Kildare based President of Republican Sinn Féin Des Dalton pledged the strikers the continued support of Republican Sinn Féin and repeated his call for a boycott of all Green Isle products while the dispute continues.

“The fact that this strike has lasted so long is an indictment not just of Green Isle but of the so-called labour laws which we are told protect workers. As in this case employers have been given licence to treat workers, as they will let rulings of the Labour Court without any consequences for them. If workers were to take a similar course they would soon find the forces of the state including the courts arrayed against both them and their union.

“The Green Isle workers need practical support and a boycott of Green Isle products would put immediate pressure on the company.

“Support for the march in Naas today (February 27) is essential in upping the ante on a company, which has shown only contempt for the rights of their workers. It is time for working people to take to the streets in what is an important battle in an economic war. An injury to one is the concern of all.” Des Dalton said.

"We of Republican Sinn Féin are the nucleus, which represents what Emmet represented,
the soul of Ireland,the prophetic shock minority, those who are neither purchased nor intimidated."
