The Republican Separatist Prisoners of An Cumann Seán Mac Eachaidh Portlaoise Gaol extend our warmest fraternal greetings to you the Republican Socialist people of Alba.
May we convey our most sincere gratitude to you for the efforts you have exerted, the time you have sacrificed and the money you have spent to be here on our behalf.
We replace the negative term division with the logical and truthful term diversity. Everyone has a right to partake in Irish Republicanism and Socialism, no one individual, leadership group or entity can lay claim to this right if you wish to join a political party or movement we encourage you do so, we implore you to study them all intensively until you have found the ethos that best represents your right to be free and to work for that freedom treated as an equal and valued as a comrade.
If you wish to remain independent we encourage you to do so inclusively but we implore you to expound that independence with constant political writings activism or which ever expression best compliments your right to liberty and the pursuit of Sovereign independence.
Incarcerated we were led to believe that there were limits to what we could achieve or what cause we could assist. The unnatural environment of captivity naturally breeds negativity but through simple, responsible and respectful debate amongst friends and comrades we developed a momentum which has confronted these bulwarks against our collective potential and that momentum has led us here to you tonight and the conclusion that there can be no limits possibly imposed upon a free being. There is nothing we cannot achieve.
This is the first public expression of an endeavour designed to inspire people to seize victory through activating your right to pursue National Liberation. To all of our comrades from all the parties, movements and groups who have shown us their respect and support we pledge to return to you the decency and respect you have paid us thus far with actions.
There are no words to express the happiness of knowing we exist outside of a prison cell at night in the minds of the Republican people, no way to explain the pride of knowing homes we left behind are being discussed tonight by our comrades, no relief like knowing this Christmas our children will receive a gift and no elation like that of being sure that prison has not and cannot prevent us from assisting the Cause of Irish Freedom.
We are humbled by your contribution on our behalf tonight and we are eternally grateful to you all. Go raibh maith agaibh!
