Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Put Ireland First and vote to remain in the EU - McGuinness

3 June, 2016 - by Martin McGuinness

Sinn Féin MLA Martin McGuinness has called on voters to put Ireland first and vote to remain in the EU on June 23rd. 

Speaking at the launch of Sinn Féin's Putting Ireland First - Vote Remain campaign, Mr McGuinness said; 

"Sinn Féin will be campaigning vigorously in the coming days and weeks to encourage people to vote to Put Ireland First and Vote Remain in the EU.

"The European Union is far from perfect but the only way to address that and change it is from within. Our policy towards the European Union remains one of critical engagement. 

"Brexit would be bad for Ireland, bad for business and trade, bad for our farmers and bad for human rights and workers rights. 

"Many aspects of our society from community groups to business and education to agriculture have been able to grow and expand as a result of the support they have received from the European Union. 

"We cannot allow the narrow interests of a section of the Tory party, which was not elected by the people of the North, to take us out of Europe and set our political agenda."
