Sinn Féin to launch nationwide information campaign against EU Constitution
Sinn Féin TD Aengus Ó Snodaigh will launch a nationwide information campaign
against the EU Constitution tomorrow, Thursday 13th at 2pm at the top of
Grafton Street next to St. Stephens’ Green Shopping Centre. He will be
accompanied by members of Ógra Shinn Féin who will be leafleting the public.
Speaking in advance of the launch Deputy Ó Snodaigh said: “An open and honest debate on the future of the European Union is long overdue and Sinn Féin’s information campaign is designed to encourage such a debate to happen in homes and workplaces throughout the country.
“The government need to stop running away from debates with Sinn Féin on the future of Europe. They need to engage with the electorate on this issue in a meaningful way.
“But I believe I will not be alone in asking why on earth the government is wasting money on publishing a White Paper on the EU Constitution when it is clear, from comments today by the Taoiseach, that they have absolutely no intention of holding a referendum anytime soon and when even senior EU
officials are stating that there is no future for the Constitution in its
current form.” ENDS
