2016 Scotland and the Easter Rising Page 1

As part of our exciting programme to mark the centenary of the Easter
Rising, on Saturday, 5th March at the STUC, the 1916 Rising Centenary
Committee (Scotland) has organised a day of talks, readings and workshops
rounded off by a céili at night.

This is an ideal opportunity to learn about different aspects of the Easter
Rising, which was probably the single most important event in 20th century
Irish history and this makes it especially worthy of commemoration. The
developments that flowed from the Easter Rising fundamentally altered the
political and constitutional make-up of these islands, and for the wider
world the Easter Rising provided inspiration for freedom struggles in
Africa and Asia.

The event will bring together a range of speakers with expert knowledge of
the Rising.

The part played by Irish and Scottish revolutionaries in Clydeside, in the
lead up to and during the Easter Rising will be acknowledged. The leading
role of Edinburgh -born James Connolly, will also be highlighted, together
with the key contribution of women like Coatbridge-born Margaret Skinnider.

The underlying purpose of the Tory anti trade union legislation is to is too crush the remaining power of the unions to protect the interests of working class people. This is in order to facilitate yet further transfers of wealth and income from the working class to the rich and big business.

ACTION and SOLIDARITY can defeat this attack on trade union freedom. Join us in the fightback at our joint trade union meeting. http://clydebanktuc.org/29-meetings/59-west-dunbartonshire-against-the-anti-trade-union-bill
