Engagement with wider community over need for progress
The public meeting, will be attended by Irish community activists and other individuals and organisations. The meeting will hear renewed calls upon the British government to clearly back the Haass proposals.
Speaking in advance of the meeting, Mr Murphy said:
“Sinn Fein have made clear from the start our support for these proposals. We have called upon the Irish and British Governments, as guarantors of the Good Friday Agreement, to make clear statements in support of the Haass proposals and work with all parties towards their implementation. In recent weeks, our MPs have been in London to press this case and to urge all those with political influence and who support progress to do likewise. It is time the government in London stepped up on this matter.
“Not only do people at home want to see progress, but people in Britain, and particularly among the Irish diaspora, also want to see politics moving forward. There is immense goodwill towards the peace process and a transformation in relations between our two islands. The vast majority of people north and south, and in Britain, want to see this continue.”
