Kimmins urges support for border protests

Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has urged people to support demonstrations set for next Saturday in opposition to reckless Tory threats to trigger Article 16. 

The Newry/Armagh MLA said: 

“Threats by the British government to trigger Article 16 are reckless and will damage our economy – they should be withdrawn immediately. 

“The Protocol is in place to prevent a hard border in Ireland, protect the all-island economy and Good Friday Agreement and to safeguard jobs. 

“Businesses and the local economy are using the opportunities afforded by the Protocol to create jobs and attract investment. 

“The DUP and Boris Johnson’s Tories must not be allowed to undermine this work – they should back off and protect the Protocol. 

“Border Communities Against Brexit have organised a series of demonstrations along five border areas next Saturday, 20 November at 3pm and I would urge people to attend and support these communities.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
