For a Fairer Ireland and a Better Europe Vote ‘No’ - Adams
Speaking during a Sinn Féin canvass in Dublin city centre today Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has urged voters to reject the Lisbon Treaty '”in order to build a Fairer Ireland and a Better Europe”.
Gerry Adams said:
“Throughout the referendum campaign Sinn Féin has identified article after article of the Lisbon Treaty that will have negative consequences for this member state and our European neighbours.
“This is exactly the same treaty that citizens rejected last year.
“Ireland and Europe can and must do better. Sinn Féin wants Ireland to continue to play a strong and positive role in the future development of the European Union.
“We seek a new Treaty that promotes real democracy, protects workers’ rights and public services, does not undermine this state’s neutrality and maintains the voice of smaller states, including Ireland, at the Commission and Council tables.
“On 2nd October voters have a choice — do they accept a bad deal or do they once again vote for a better deal for Ireland and for Europe?
“A fairer Ireland and a better Europe are possible. Vote ‘No’ on October 2nd.”
