Campaign for equality and an Acht Gaeilge must intensify – Ní Chuilín
Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has said the campaign for equality and an Acht Gaeilge must now be intensified following the failure of the British government and the DUP to step up to the plate.
Carál Ní Chuilín was speaking after today’s demonstration at Stormont by An Dream Dearg at 4.15pm campaigning for an Acht Gaeilge.
Carál Ní Chuilín said:
"It is past time for an Irish Language Act.
"The rights and entitlements of Irish speakers should and must be protected by legislation.
"The DUP and the British government continue to fall short on their commitments.
"If we want an Irish Language Act we must go out there and campaign for it. As Gerry Adam's rightly put it last week, we must mobilise and organise.
"I would encourage everyone who wants equality, respect and rights to show their support today and in the weeks to come."
