Sinn Féin Trade Union Dept

James Connolly (1868-1916) foregrounds Dublin’s Liberty Hall, headquarters of the ITGWU and the ICA (Irish Citizen Army) during WWI and the Rising, flying a banner reading “We serve neither king nor kaiser but Ireland.” The building was destroyed during the Rising. The quote, “The cause of Labour is the cause of Ireland, the cause of Ireland is the cause of Labour.” is from an 1916 article by Connolly, ‘The Irish Flag‘. “For a Democratic Socialist Republic.” Rockmount Street, Belfast.
