South Dublin Sinn Féin step up No to Lisbon campaign
South Dublin Sinn Féin representative Shaun Tracey has said his party will intensify its campaign against the Lisbon Treaty in South Dublin in the final four weeks of the campaign.
Speaking as No to Lisbon posters appeared all over the constituency this week Mr. Tracey said the campaign in South Dublin will include door to door canvassing, public events and a major poster and leafleting campaign.
Mr. Tracey said, “The Lisbon Treaty is a bad deal for Ireland and should be rejected. It has consequences for Ireland’s neutrality, democracy, sovereignty, for workers rights, public services and more.
“By rejecting this Treaty we give our negotiators a stronger hand to go back to Europe and negotiate a better deal including a specific article protecting our neutrality, retaining our veto on international trade agreements and retaining an Irish Commissioner and our voting strength at the Council of Ministers.
“However, if we do not reject this Treaty we will never be able to reverse the measures included in it. I urge all voters to reject the Treaty.
“During the final four weeks of the campaign Sinn Féin in Dublin South will be intensifying the campaign against the Treaty. Our campaign will include door to door canvassing, public events and a major poster and leafleting campaign.” ENDS
