Other speakers included Tom Buchanan, DUP MLA, Solicitor Pat Fahy, Irish Language activists Linda Ervine and Sinéad Ní Mhearnóg, Independent Unionist MLA John McCallister and economist Michael Burke.
Barry McElduff said:
“These are important times in politics. We are facing into two elections north and south and the people want real change.
“Sinn Féin remains committed to delivering a new and better Ireland for all, to move beyond partition and disunity and to create a just, fair, prosperous and equal society.
“Irish Unity would result in significant long-term improvement in Ireland’s economy by removing currency, trade and tax barriers that currently impede economic growth.
“Sinn Féin is committed to ensuring all the people of Ireland can exercise their vote in a referendum on Irish Unity. A referendum on Irish Unity is not a threat to anyone.
“It is great opportunity for all of us irrespective of our opinions to carve out our future. This is about placing the future of Ireland in the hands of the people.
We are stronger together than we can ever be apart.”
