Shaw, the now deceased Synge, and Connolly were united by their common opponents as events brought Shaw and Connolly together in a London rally for Dublin labor and the release of the imprisoned Irish trade union leader James Larkin. While both Connolly and Shaw delivered remarkable speeches, Shaw called for the arming of Dublin labor in order to stop the police brutality aimed at locked-out workers. Two weeks later, Connolly called for the formation of the Irish Citizen Army (ICA), which began training with words from its drill instructor on Shaw. As the ICA was forming, a bourgeois nationalist, Padraic Pearse, began to reconsider Synge, seeing him as a lost voice for Irish labor during the Lockout. Furthermore, when Dublin labor leaders Larkin and Connolly called on British labor to strike in sympathy with Dublin labor, British labor refused, leaving Dublin labor in defeat.
