Ógra Shinn Féin to take part in Protest at Bush Visit

13 June, 2008

Ógra Shinn Féin will participate in the protests against George Bush and US lead War in Iraq when he is expected in Belfast next Monday 16th June.

The protest will highlight their anger over the ongoing US occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan.

Speaking on the upcoming protest, National Organiser of Ógra Shinn Féin, Barry McColgan said;

"We will be mobilising our activists next Monday to send a message loud and clear that the occupations of Iraq and Afghanistan are illegal and must come to an end."

"Thousands upon thousands of Iraqi and Afghanistan citizens, including women and children have been unnecessarily killed, the stability of these nations have been shaken to the core, and the sovereignty of its peoples stolen and ignored."

"The protest next Monday must resonate with the incoming US president that the ongoing occupations are illegal, inhumane and must be ended."

"While we will be visibly and vocally protesting, the Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness will meet with George Bush and raise these concerns with him." ENDS
