Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Make Partition History

7 September, 2005

Sinn Féin Chief Negotiator, Mid Ulster MP Martin McGuinness MLA speaking at the unveiling of a 'Make Partition History' campaign banner outside the Sinn Féin Sevastopol Street Office on the Falls Road has said that the national rally on September 24th will give people from across Ireland the opportunity to make a very strong statement in support of Irish unity.

Mr McGuinness said:

"On Saturday 24th September a Rally for Irish unity will take place in Dublin. Following the end of the IRA's historic initiative an opportunity has been created for us to build on the increasing momentum for Irish unity and to rally the Irish people behind the slogan, Make Partition History. It is an opportunity we should not miss.

"Sinn Féin are encouraging people from all walks of life to come along and enjoy the Carnival and Rally on September 24 to show that the desire and demand for Irish unity amongst the ordinary Irish people is as strong today as it ever was.

"Our goal is the reunification of our country and an end to British jurisdiction in it. We are confident it will be realised.

"The campaign to 'Make Partition History' is also about building the momentum for an Ireland that is different from the rip-off Ireland and dodgy dealings of successive Irish governments and the discrimination and stalemate of northern politics. It is about the demand for a future that rejects the negatives politics of selfish interest where everyone is valued equally and has an equal place in our society." ENDS
