Reconciliation is an imperative, not an option - Kearney
Sinn Féin MLA and National Chairperson Declan Kearney has said reconciliation must be an imperative, not an option.
Writing in An Phoblacht, Declan Kearney said;
"Reconciliation and healing in our society are an imperative for the Irish peace process. But their achievement continues to be both challenging and elusive.
"Sinn Féin is absolutely committed to ensuring a process of reconciliation and healing is established.
"Republicans have stretched and challenged ourselves to develop the peace process.
"It is now time that others began to do the same.
"That should include active and unambiguous commitment from the leaderships of political unionism.
“There is a need for both a fresh start and new start by political unionism towards reconciliation.
"Reconciliation is not a one-way street.
"It is crucial that others also begin to embrace this challenge and responsibility."
