Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Ó Snodaigh - Irish complicity in the war build-up must end

15 January, 2003


plies across the territory of a neutral power. Sinn Féin reiterates our demand for the immediate suspension of such authorisation and the recalling of the Dáil to discuss this very grave matter.

"The government must take their head out of the sand and respond to the Irish public's very real concerns on this.

"For months now Sinn Féin has been calling for a debate in the Dáil on this issue of crucial national and international importance. But the government - in its typical arrogance - has refused. Their Nice campaign guarantee that they would defend Irish neutrality was clearly just another in a series of broken promises. We therefore also continue to call for neutrality to be enshrined in the Constitution and in legislation.

"Sinn Féin fully supports the anti-war movement, the peace camp at Shannon Airport, and the national anti-war mobilisation on February 15. We look forward to playing our part, together with the other progressive peoples of the US and Europe - and, indeed the world over - on this most important issue." ENDS
