Support for Irish unity building - Kelly
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has said support is building for Sinn Féin and Irish unity every day.
Speaking at an Easter commemoration in north Belfast today, Gerry Kelly said:
"We remain guided by the noble ideals of the 1916 leaders. But we struggle in the context of 2017.
"We are now in a phase of nation building. That requires building the political clout to bring about fundamental change.
"At Stormont we are ready to continue the talks again however, if others fail to live up to their commitments then the people must have their say in another election. We don’t want an Assembly election but if it becomes necessary then we will be ready.
"In the period ahead we must build to win a Unity referendum. We cannot do it alone. To win we must demonstrate that equality for all will be at the core of any government involving Sinn Féin.
"The stronger we are, the closer our goal, of a free, independent and United Ireland, will come."
