Published 15th August 1969, a statement from the IRA in the immediate aftermath of the Battle of the Bogside.

It calls for the disarming of the B Specials, withdrawal of British Troops and a UN-supervised all-Ireland election. It also rejects calls from some for the suspension of Stormont and introduction of direct Westminster rule.
