Border communities would be hit hardest by Brexit - Anderson

25 July, 2016 - by Martina Anderson MEP


Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said being dragged out of the EU would hit border communities particularly badly. 

Ms Anderson said; 

"I met today with members of the Confederation of Community Groups in Newry to discus the potential impact of the EU referendum. 

"The border region has suffered immensely as a result of partition and any hardening of the border will only have a negative impact on the lives of people who live, work and study in the area. 

"The people of the North voted to reject that and I would encourage all interested groups to raise their voices to ensure the democratic wishes of the majority who voted to remain are respected."
