Easter Rising 100 Years On: Irish parade honors armed struggle against British empire

Thousands in Dublin, Ireland will march in a parade to the General Post Office (GPO) building where Easter Rising rebels fought the British military 100 years ago. As the clock strikes noon, the 1916 Proclamation will be read in front of descendants of the rebels who fought a century ago. The parade will feature one of the largest military displays in the history of the state including 3,500 marchers and a US-style “fly-past” by the Air Corps.
