Sinn Féin - On Your Side

21 April, 2011 - by Pat Sheehan


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD canvassing in Portadown, Lurgan and Craigavon, today called for the biggest vote possible for the peace process and continued progress towards equality Mr Adams said:

“A vote for Sinn Féin is a vote against the anti-peace factions and for a better future. Significant progress has been made in recent years through the peace process but more needs to be done.

“For decades Upper Bann was seen as a largely unionist constituency. However times have changed, politics has moved forward and equality is now achievable in Upper Bann. Across this constituency from Banbridge to Portadown Sinn Féin are breaking new ground and bringing a positive message of equality to the doorsteps.

“On May 5th real change can happen here in Upper Bann. Council chambers in both Banbridge and Craigavon can be transformed and three nationalist MLAs can be elected. So far the SDLP have ignored our offer to meet and discuss how best we can deliver this outcome by working together. But that is a matter for that party.

“In the remaining two weeks Sinn Féin will continue to be out on the doorsteps in this constituency and indeed across the north. By using your vote on polling day people here and elsewhere can become agents of change and help keep the process of change moving ahead.” ENDS
