The party are calling the protest the “Peoples’ Rally against the Royal Visit” which will take place from 12-4pm at the plaza beside the National Monument on the Grand Parade.
Sinn Féin TD Jonathan O’Brien said, “Sinn Féin is organising a peaceful and dignified alternative to the visit by Elizabeth Windsor.”
“Instead of welcoming the representative of an outdated and archaic institution to Cork, we invite people to join us in celebrating the democratic and republican traditions of our city.
“We believe the lives of people like Terence MacSwiney and Tomás MacCurtain, and the ideals they fought for, are far more worthy of celebration than the arrival of a foreign monarch who is head of state only because her ancestors were before her.
“The event will include music, a variety of speakers, and pageantry. We invite bands, people involved in the arts, community groups and others who are opposed to the royal visit to get in touch if they would like to join us on the day.
“I believe the most fitting way of marking the arrival of this feudal relic in our city is to celebrate all those, in Cork and elsewhere, who have struggled for freedom, justice and equality – values which are the polar opposite of those represented by hereditary monarchy,” he said.
