Thousands rally against Brexit – O’Neill
Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Michelle O’Neill MLA has congratulated Border Communities Against Brexit on mobilising thousands of people today to oppose Brexit.
Commenting after joining a rally at Carrickcarnon, Michelle O’Neill said:
“Thousands of people gathered at border locations across Ireland today to oppose Brexit and the political circus that has played out at Westminster.
“We are moving closer to a no-deal crash out as a result of the reckless actions of the DUP and hardline Brexiteers.
“There is an agreement on the table, which includes the backstop, the bare minimum protections for Ireland. It cannot be renegotiated.
“Our economy, farmers, business and the rights of citizens and our peace agreements cannot be collateral damage to Westminster.
“Mary Lou McDonald will lead a delegation to Brussels on Monday and our leadership team will meet with Michel Barnier and other European leaders to ensure they continue to act in the interests of Ireland in the result of any crash-out Brexit.
“Communities on both side of the border remain deeply concerned about their futures and I commend Border Communities Against Brexit for organising today’s rallies.”
