What is Loyalism- Part 1

As the forces of Loyalism have mobilised in recent weeks, under the direction of British imperialism, to agitate for a hard border in Ireland, it is more important than ever to understand the true nature of Loyalism.

This video produced by Anti Imperialist Action is the beginning of a Socialist Republican analysis of Loyalism, explaining its modern roots in the Home Rule Crisis in the early 20th Century, the rise of the Ulster Volunteers, the Belfast pogroms and the partition of Ireland by British imperialism. The class character of Loyalism and its major elements are explained.

It will be an ongoing series exploring Loyalism, which remains one of the most reactionary forces in Ireland and an imperialist tool to frustrate the struggle for national liberation and socialism revolution.
