Boycott Crossmaglen policing meeting

The 32 County Sovereignty Movement call on the people of South Armagh to boycott the upcoming DPP meeting which is to be held in Crossmaglen on september 4th.

The DPP is nothing more than a public relations stunt aimed at fooling people into believing that the RUC/PSNI can be held accountable and in the process getting them to accept British policing in Ireland. The fact is that the only people the RUC are accountable to is the British government.

The RUC/PSNI is an illegal police force tasked with upholding Britain's illegal sovereign claim over a part of Ireland and denying the Irish people their democratic right to freedom and independence. While the issue of national sovereignty remains unsettled British policing will remain political policing and no republican should support such a force.

It is also a slap on the face that this meeting is to be held in Crossmaglen a town where once no member of the crown forces could be safe. It is exactly because of Crossmaglen's republican reputation that this meeting is being held there, the rational being that if it goes ahead without incident then it should be no problem holding these meetings in other parts of South Armagh in the future.

Throughout the conflict the people of South Armagh have suffered injustice and oppression at the hands of the Crown forces. They have been tortured, imprisoned and lost family and friends yet have remained unbroken. We call on them to retain their spirit of resistance and to not allow themselves to be bought off or co opted into accepting the occupation as the constitutional nationalist parties have been.

I.R.A. claim double bomb attack

The following is a statement given to a Newry paper by a spokesperson for Óglaigh na hÉireann (whom the media refer to as the Real IRA) and forwarded anonymously to a member of the editorial board of The Sovereign Nation.

"On Sunday 15th July an active service unit of Óglaigh na hÉireann planted a bomb in the Upper Fathom Road area of Newry in the vicinity of the railway line. A booby trapped anti personnel device was also left in the area with the intention of killing members of the RUC/PSNI, only they know how lucky they were. We reiterate our call to civilians to keep their distance from crown force personnel and facilities as more IRA attacks are imminent"
