Sinn Féin - On Your Side

From demilitarisation to regeneration for West Belfast

1 December, 2004

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams, MP, today welcomed the fact that the Andersonstown Barracks is to be closed, once and for all:

"There is no reason for this fortress in the middle of Andersonstown. Sinn Fein is the only party which has consistently campaigned for the closure of Andersonstown barracks.

" Now, the property and land should be made given back to the west Belfast community again. Sinn Fein will join forces with the local community to ensure this symbol of militarisation and oppression is made part of the regeneration of west Belfast which we are advancing." ENDS
