Sinn Féin MEPs will continue to champion Irish Unity and a shared future - Ní Riada

Liadh Ní Riada MEP has said "Sinn Féin MEPs will continue to champion and argue for the cause of Irish Unity in the European Union."

Ms Ní Riada continued;

"The future of our island is unity within a radically transformed European Union."

"Brexit has reshaped the public conversation on unity. The approach taken by Tory Brexiteers has accelerated the prospect of a unity referendum.

"It is clear that future must be all of Ireland in the European Union and Ireland should be to the fore in leading the push for a radically transformed EU.

"This must be a fair and social EU where the needs of ordinary citizens come before the interests of big corporations and the very wealthy.

"Brexit has shone a spotlight on the undemocratic, divisive nature of partition. Partition doesn't work today. It hasn't worked in the past. It won't work tomorrow. The future is Irish Unity.

"The means a shared and inclusive future in which all identities are respected and where every person, from every background, has a place. It is our job to make this future a reality, to keep reaching out, to keep the conversation alive and the debate going.

"Next Friday, the people will have an opportunity to return four Sinn Féin MEPs to the European Parliament who will continue to progress the cause of Irish Unity, who will defend the Good Friday Agreement and who will fight tooth and nail to protect Irish Interests, north and south against the Tory Brexit.

"I am asking voters to elect an All-Ireland team that will work every day for a progressive vision of a united Ireland within a fairer, better European Union."
