A little history for y’all: James Connolly was executed where the cross stands. He had been shot during the course of the Easter Rising in his leg and had developed gangrene. He was already dying from his wounds but the execution was ordered to go on. Because of his injuries, he was unable to stand so they tied him to a chair and shot him. When this story spread through Ireland, it infuriated the population. This turned the tide of public opinion to sympathy for the rebels and pushed them to martyrdom. • • • #ireland #irelandtravel #eire #ireland🍀 #ireland_daily #history #ireland🇮🇪 #dublin #dublinireland #travelblogger #travel #travelphotography #traveller #travelgram #travel_drops #travelbook #kilmainhamgaol #abandonedplaces #jamesconnolly #easterrising #kilmainham #history #abandoned #travelguide #travelholic #womenwhotravel #historylovers #igers #globetrotter #jaw_dropping_shots at Kilmainham Gaol

When James Connolly envisioned an Irish Workers' Republic, he envisioned a nation of citizen soldiers where every citizen was armed with a rifle and organized democratically within their community which also would have cannons. This was to keep political-economic power in the hands of the masses within an egalitarian tradition and to prevent the reconquest of Ireland by the British Empire. #jamesconnolly #socialism #socialist #communism #communist #nationalism #nationalist #irishrepublicanism #irishrepublican #irishrepublicanarmy #irishrepublicanandproud #irishcitizenarmy #ica #ira #irishrepublic #politics #economics #socialjustice #economicjustice #politicaljustice #1916 #1916rising #1916easterrising #anarchism #anarchist #marxism #marxist #nationalliberation

Our second #WomenOfTheWeek is Winifred Carney (1887-1943) #IWD19 ⠀ ⠀ Winifred worked as secretary for the Irish Textile Workers’ Union, set up by James Connolly in 1912 as the women’s section of the Belfast Transport and General Workers Union. Carney and Connolly co-wrote the Manifesto to the Linen Slaves of Belfast in 1913. As a committed nationalist Carney also became an active member of the Belfast branch of Cumann na mBan when it was formed, together with Nora and Ina Connolly. ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Connolly sent for her before the Easter Rising began, and she provided secretarial support to the leadership, typing up despatches and other messages. Carney was the first woman to enter the GPO, as a member of the Irish Citizen Army and aide-de-camp to James Connolly. She surrendered together with the Republican leadership and was imprisoned in England for a time afterwards. Carney stood unsuccessfully for Sinn Fein on a Workers’ Republic platform in east Belfast in the 1918 election.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #InspirationalWomen #iwd #reclaimtheagenda #thetimeisnow #women #riseup #womenriseup #trustwomen #timesup #notconsent #feminist #feminists #belfast #rally #northernireland #enoughisenough #womenempoerment #womensrights #resist #empowerwomen #ACenturyOfWomen #tradeunion #1916 #JamesConnolly

This was in 1936 and we STILL did not win a 30 hour week here in the United States of America. With 2019 wealth and technology, we can probably survive and thrive with a 20 hour week. Challenge capitalism. Challenge the status quo. Change the debate. #jamesconnolly #socialism #socialist #communism #communist #nationalism #nationalist #irishrepublicanism #irishrepublican #irishrepublicanarmy #irishrepublicanandproud #irishcitizenarmy #ica #ira #irishrepublic #politics #economics #socialjustice #economicjustice #politicaljustice #1916 #1916rising #1916easterrising #anarchism #anarchist #marxism #marxist #nationalliberation #statenisland #socialistanyc
