Adams calls for people to come out and vote
Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams TD is today canvassing in Fermanagh South Tyrone. Speaking from Fermanagh where is was accompanied by candidates Phil Flanagan Mr Adams said:
“It is important that people come out on Thursday and use their vote. May 5th marks the 30th anniversary of the death of Bobby Sands. The people of this constituency showed the power of their vote when over 30,000 of them came out and elected Bobby as their MP. It was a democratic action that shaped the course of history.
“We have fought this campaign on the front foot with a positive message that change is happening and that further progress will be made in the course of the next four years. Sinn Féin are seeking votes right across the north. In addition to the Assembly elections we are seeking to see Sinn Féin representatives elected to councils which have previously been the sole domain of the unionist parties. We are offering people a real choice.
“Sinn Féin Ministers and MLAs have led from the front over the course of the last Assembly term. That team is now strengthened by 14 TDs and only last week 3 new Sinn Féin Senators. On Thursday we are seeking a mandate to continue that work. To continue building an Ireland based on Equality and a society which is prosperous. That will happen if people come out and come out and vote Sinn Fein.” ENDS
