Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Gerry Adams to tour all five EU constituencies

3 June, 2004


Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP will tour all five EU constituencies on the island over the next five days. Mr. Adams will be in Dublin, Wexford, Waterford, Galway and Belfast canvassing with the party's Local Government and European candidates and calling on the electorate to support the Sinn Féin's agenda for change.

Speaking from Belfast this afternoon Mr. Adams said:

"It is now just a week to the Local Government and EU elections and the citizenship referendum and people will be deciding who they want to represent them and what type of society that they want to create. Sinn Féin wants to create an Ireland of equals and over the next five days I will be travelling throughout Ireland asking people to support our agenda for change and to strengthen our hand in the negotiations which will follow the elections. I will be asking them to come out and vote for the Sinn Fein candidates in their areas, and their respective EU election candidates. I will be asking them to vote No in the government's referendum, which is aimed at creating a completely unequal society for future generations. I will also be asking people to make sure they use their vote and not allow their future to be decided by others."ENDS
