Still Not Free

Éirígí (web) board with the “Democratic Programme Of The first Dáil Éireann” 90 years ago in 1919, declaring “the right of the people of Ireland to the ownership of Ireland, and to the unfettered control of Irish destinies”.

This is the first éirígí poster in the PM collection; previously we had only seen stencils (M04501 | M04535). It became a political party in 2007.
