Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Kearney urges people to vote remain

22 June, 2016 - by Declan Kearney

Sinn Féin MLA and National Chairperson Declan Kearney has urged people to vote Remain in tomorrow's EU referendum. 

Speaking on the final day of campaigning, Mr Kearney said; 

"It is very clear that a Brexit will be bad for the economy on the island, bad for farmers, bad for the environment, bad for workers and communities, bad for young people, and bad for Irish unity. 

"Our people in the North of Ireland should not allow the most reactionary elements of the British Tory party to set our political agenda or Ireland's economic future and to drag us out of Europe. 

"Brexit has the potential to entrench partition. We are committed to ending partition and don't want to see the return of border checkpoints between north and south. 

"We have been very critical of the democratic deficit at the heart of the EU but the only way to change that is from within. We want to change the EU and build a progressive, prosperous and social Europe, which respects sovereignty. 

"Sinn Féin is calling on everyone to Put Ireland First and vote Remain in tomorrow's referendum."
