Sinn Féin to hold series of public meetings

Sinn Féin to hold series of public meetings

Sinn Féin is initiating a series of public meetings over the coming week to give the wider community the opportunity to engage with the party leadership on the current political situation.

Sinn Féin Vice President Michelle O’Neill commented: 

“We are the only party that regularly engages with the public in this way by holding Town Hall-type meetings to give citizens an opportunity to engage directly with the Sinn Féin leadership.

“These engagements will obviously be focusing on the current political impasse caused by the DUP’s decision to collapse the power-sharing negotiations rather than accept rights which are afforded to citizens everywhere else on these islands.

“While the talks process has been collapsed, standing still is not an option. Citizens have rights, and we must continue campaigning and demanding that those rights are implemented and outstanding agreements honoured.

“I would encourage people to come along to their local meetings as we plan the way forward for this society and ensuring the two governments now move to convene the British Irish Intergovernmental Conference to ensure the full implementation of agreements and to protect and promote the rights of all citizens.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
