Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Sinn Féin to hold State-wide demonstrations in response to local unemployment figures

5 August, 2010 - by Aengus Ó Snodaigh TD


Sinn Féin activists are holding a day of action across the state tomorrow as local unemployment figures are published.

Protests and pickets will take place across the state at TDs and Minister’s constituency offices, at town centres and at airports and ports.

Speaking this evening ahead of tomorrow’s actions Dublin Sinn Féin TD said:

“Tomorrow’s actions are part of an ongoing Sinn Féin campaign to increase the pressure on the government to take action to create jobs.

“The prolonged Dáil break is an insult to the unemployed when urgent action is needed to create jobs. Our message to the government is create jobs to stop emigration.

“Jobs can be created. Solutions exist. The government needs to act now.” ENDS
