The latest issue of the An Phoblacht magazine is now on sale!

This edition of An Phoblacht marks the 40th anniversary of the 1981 hunger strikes with some great contributions, including articles from former Republican prisoners Síle Darragh, Jim Gibney, Chrissie McAuley and Pat Sheehan MLA. They are powerful first-hand accounts of the events of 1981 inside and outside prison.

Palestinian Ambassador to Ireland Dr Jilan Wahba Abdalmajid writes an exclusive article for An Phoblacht on Israel’s latest deadly attacks in Gaza and the inhuman onslaught facing the Palestinian people. 

With growing inequalities and systemic economic underdevelopment in rural areas, the potential offered by embedding a Community Wealth Building Strategy (CWB) in Irish society is significant. Sinn Féin TD Mairead Farrell gives a Left analysis for building community wealth, while Joe Guinan explains how CWB has transformed regions in the USA and Britain.

New An Phoblacht Podcast will challenge establishment perspective

To meet the demands of a growing audience for the politics of radical republicanism, and to adapt to the fast-developing world of social media, An Phoblacht has launched a new Podcast series, which complements, enhances and deepens the experience offered by our quarterly magazine and online articles.

More importantly it establishes another valuable platform in our struggle, challenging the establishment media narrative on political events and offering fresh, new and progressive ideas, perspectives and analysis.

The Podcast will launch this Monday and the first episode features an interview with former An Phoblacht Editor and Writer Danny Morrison.

It will be available on Spotify, iTunes, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
