Ireland's Van Diemen's Land






























The following is just a small excerpt from an excellent article about John Mitchell who was mostly based in Newry, in Wikipedia. I strongly recommend it as a essential reading for anyone interested in the Irish struggle and the connection with Tasmania or Van Diemen's Land. There is still a Cumann of Sinn Fein bearing his name in Newry kept alive by Tom Lonergan. Mitchell's ideas and analysis are very relevant to todays struggle in Ireland and encompass much of the solution on the way forward. Mitchell a Presbyterian, was also an internationalist who saw International capitalism as the real enemy. His role in the American civil war was misunderstood by many.
