    Default Dissident republicans - someone please explain

    Republican SF, the 32 County Soveriegnty Committee, R.I.R.A, C.I.R.A.

    What others are there?
    What is the difference between them?
    Which "army" is affiliated to which party?
    If there is a future, it will be Green.

    CIRA and Sinn Féin are not dissidents from anything. They are The Republican Movement.

    They are certainly dissidents from the will of the people, in election after election.

    What mandate is there except the will of the people?
    If there is a future, it will be Green.

    Sorry, I'll take back my pro-democratic remarks, I now realise they may offend some.

    To be a dissident Republican would mean that you have dissented from Republican principles. It is the provos who are the dissidents.

    Okay I'll rephrase the question.
    Let's call them the various different groups calling themselves republicans.
    If there is a future, it will be Green.

    You could try their websites.

    rsf.ie and 32csm.org

    These will explain what these organisations stand for.

    Just give it time and you'll have them on here, coming out with something like this:

    SCREAM SCREAM SCREAM - KICK YOU IN THE SHINS - SCREAM - MAMMY, THEY'RE CALLING US 'DISSIDENTS' AGAIN. SCREAM! WHY WON'T THEY LISTEN. WE'RE NOT 'DISSIDENTS' BUT TRUE REPUBLICANS. WE'RE THE TRUEST OF THE TRUEST, SO THERE! SCREAM! WE DON'T EVEN SHARE SWEETS WITH NON-REPUBLICANS. WE'RE EVEN THE GOVERNMENT OF THIS COUNTRY, IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED. DUH!

    WE'RE NOT DISSIDENTS AS DISSIDENTS DON'T HAVE SPOTS. IF YOU CALL US 'DISSIDENTS' AGAIN, WE'LL CALL YOU SOMETHING WORSE.

    I WAS A TRUE REPUBLICAN AND VOTED AGAINST THE DECISION TO DROP ABSTENTIONISM BEFORE I WAS EVEN BORN.

    I'M CONTRIBUTING TO THE WAR EFFORT BY TRYING TO WIN MORE TOY SOLIDERS BY PLAYING 'HOOK-A-DUCK' AT THE LOCAL FAIR.
