Sinn Féin will vigorously support a Yes vote in the Marriage Equality referendum – Mac Lochlainn
Sinn Féin Spokesperson on Justice and Equality Pádraig Mac Lochlainn TD, the Political Director of his party's campaign for a Yes vote in the Marriage Equality referendum, has stated that Sinn Féin will campaign vigorously for a Yes vote in every single constituency across this state.
At Sinn Féin's Marriage Equality campaign launch today he said:
"This referendum is solely about marriage equality. It is about ensuring that our gay and lesbian citizens have the same right to marry the person they love as everyone else.
“For Sinn Féin, as a Republican party, equality is at the core of what we represent. We are committed to building a real Republic where social and economic equality are among the main measurements of our nations success"
"Our party elected representatives and members have already been canvassing for a Yes vote across the state along with grass roots campaigners from the Yes Equality campaign.
“In the next number of weeks, Sinn Féin will be vigorously campaigning across every constituency in this state. We are asking the Irish people to vote Yes to equality. All citizens deserve the right to marry the person they love.”
