Adams launches new Sinn Féin website

23 July, 2003

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP this morning launched the party's new look website at the ITXP internet café on the Ormeau Road in Belfast. The site contains many new features and is designed to be easily accessible to users.

Mr. Adams said:

"This website is the latest and most high-tech way of bringing the republican message to an audience at home and across the world. It will help us advance our struggle to achieve our objective of a united Ireland, an Ireland of equals.

"We have always recognised the absolute importance of explaining our struggle to a wider audience, of winning hearts and minds.

"Republicans, throughout the years of repression and censorship, found innovative ways to get our message across. Thankfully, we have come a long way from the days when republican prisoners, naked except for a blanket, told the world the story of their resistance by smuggling out notes scratched on cigarette strength to strength, with more and more people identifying with our message of building an Ireland of Equals. It is vital that people are fully aware of the type of Ireland we are trying to create and that they can get involved in our work.

"When we initially launched the site in 1995, it played a vital role in the emerging peace process. I believe that our new look site will play just as meaningful a role on the road to Irish unity and independence."ENDS
