Anderson to host MEP taskforce to discuss impact of Brexit
Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson will host a task force of MEPs from across Europe in Ireland this week to see at first hand the impact of Brexit.
Martina Anderson said:
"The British government's Brexit agenda will be disastrous for Ireland, north and south, and it will hit the border regions particularly hard.
"This week I will be hosting a task force of MEPs from countries across Europe to see at first hand the impact of this reckless Brexit agenda.
"We will be visiting Monaghan, Louth, Armagh to see how the imposition of a border, hard or soft, will impact on the lives of people living in these areas.
"Myself and my fellow Sinn Féin MEP Matt Carthy will also be holding a public meeting in the Carrickdale Hotel, on the Armagh/Louth border on Thursday at 7.30pm to discuss the impact of Brexit.
"The task force will then travel to Belfast on Friday. They will meet local community groups who have benefited from EU funding before going to Stormont to meet Sinn Féin MLAs to discuss how to build further support for our case for the north to have designated special status within the EU."
