Welcome removal of the Rosemount Watch Tower - As work Begins

20 February, 2007

Sinn Féin Assembly candidate Martina Anderson has welcomed the commencement of work to remove the Rosemount Watch Tower.

Ms Anderson said:

"The removal of Britain's war apparatus from our country has been a key demand made by Sinn Féin throughout each stage of our negotiations with the British government. In recent times some significant progress has been made.

"I welcome the fact that work has now begun on removing this watch tower. It's a great day for the people of Rosemount who have campaigned long and hard for its removal."

"This military post has been blight on this community for too long. Local people will be glad to see the back of this eyesore and those who spied on them from within it."

"Sinn Féin are determined to ensure that all British Army forces are removed from our communities and lands stolen and occupied be returned to their rightful owners or put to community use." ENDS
