Sinn Féin Call For Support For Border Brexit Protests

Sinn Féin have called for support for the Border Communities Against Brexit (BCAB) Protests, which will take place at various locations along the border tomorrow, 30 March, at 3pm.

The Donegal-based Senator Padraig MacLochlainn said: "I would encourage everyone to make their way to the border this weekend in protest against Brexit. Brexit poses a huge threat to jobs, our border communities, and the two economies on this island.

"A majority of people in the North voted to Remain and the Tories along with the DUP are ignoring this democratic mandate. Our rights, economy and agreements must be protected.

"The antics on display at Westminster show clearly the complete disregard the British Government has for Ireland, especially our border communities. Join us tomorrow and take a stand against Brexit."

Protests will take place at the following locations:

• Old Dublin Road, Carrickcarnon

• Belcoo-Blacklion

• Aghalane

• Moybridge, Aughnacloy

• Lifford Bridge

• Bridgend.
