During a well-attended United Irish League meeting in Limerick, Mr John Redmond called for confronting coercion with coercion and emphasized the need to defeat Mr Wyndham’s schemes, just as the Irish party had done in the House of Commons. Describing the Irish Chief Secretary as one of the worst representatives of English rule in Ireland, Redmond criticised the Land Bill as a sham and urged the Irish people to unite for a significant effort to achieve liberty.
Mr William O’Brien claimed he had been maligned by Mr Wyndham and called on the people to rise against coercion. He encouraged others to stand against land-grabbing and maintain their position in place of those sentenced to jail until Irish jails were overflowing. O’Brien declared that the responsibility rested with the people to win their liberties.
