Irish Northern Aid Peace ProcessIrish Northern Aid or INAC is an Irish-American organization that specializes in fund raising. It was established after a period in Northern Ireland’s history called 'The Troubles' which was a time of ethnic, religious and political conflict that affected all of Ireland and spilled over England and Europe too.
INAC peace process encourages pace and states that Ireland is a democratic country. INAC also supports the development of a coalition of members that will promote the unity of Ireland through peaceful means. Irish Northern Aid mission statement declares that all political leaders, the media and the public must be informed, educated and organized to support only decisions that involve peace. This peace process has started when a large majority of the Irish citizens agreed to support the Good Friday Agreement, also known as the Belfast Agreement. This agreement was signed by the majority of Northern Ireland’s political parties and by members of the Irish and British governments.
Another key aspect in the organization’s peace process is mentioning that it wants national reconciliation and equal rights for all the people of Ireland. Through this statement, INAC opens the doors for membership to anyone who shares its interests and who supports democracy.
The peace process mentions concepts like equal rights and democracy because Northern Ireland has a long history of all kinds of divisions. For example, its population is split between protestant groups and catholic groups. The protestant wing is unionist and wants to keep the country closer to the United Kingdom, while the catholics are more nationalists and want Ireland to be independent, sovereign and united.
Irish Northern Aid mission is to help promote a solid peace process that will eventually eradicate all political, religious and ethnic clashes. This can’t be possible if people don’t engage in a national dialogue, talk about their grievances, respect the principles of democracy and embrace peace as the ultimate goal.
