Sinn Féin MPs to attend British Labour party conference
Sinn Féin's Paul Maskey MP has said the party's participation in the British Labour party conference this weekend is an opportunity to raise rights issues, austerity and the impact of Brexit with the British left.
Speaking in advance of the conference, Paul Maskey said:
“At the British Labour party conference this weekend, Elisha McCallion MP and I will be engaging on a host of issues affecting the people of Ireland.
“On Sunday we're hosting our annual Sinn Féin fringe event, this year discussing the impact on the people of Ireland of Brexit, austerity and difficulty created by the right wing Tory-DUP pact. British shadow Secretary of State to the north, Owen Smith, and writer Kevin Meagher will also be in attendance.
“Throughout the week I will also be sharing our thoughts on the Kurdish peace process, and how to fight Brexit in Ireland at the Momentum conference 'The World Transformed'.
“As MPs we critically engage with progressive movements in Britain, in Europe and around the world. This gives us the opportunity to raise the profile of the issues facing Ireland, north and south.”
