Proclamation remains progressive mission statement – Chivers

1 Mins read

The first Easter Lily launch was hosted by Sinn Féin Mayor Brenda Chivers in the Causeway Coast and Glens Council last night.

Speaking at the event which was attended by Sinn Féin’s council candidates, MLAs, as well as republican activists and family members of the patriot dead from the area, Brenda Chivers said:

“It was an honour to host the first Lily launch in the Causeway Coast and Glens Council.

“Easter is the most important date in the Republican calendar; it is a time when we gather right across Ireland and beyond, to remember and commemorate those men and women, throughout the generations, who gave their lives in pursuit of Irish freedom and independence.

“The 1916 Proclamation remains the mission statement for Irish republicans today.

“It is a freedom charter for all the people of this island which guarantees religious and civil liberty and promotes equal rights and opportunities for all citizens.

“2019 despite the political challenges of Brexit also presents an opportunity to see how we can make the United, independent Ireland envisaged in 1916 a reality.

“There was never a better time to plan and deliver on an all-Ireland basis.

“Sinn Féin is committed to safeguarding the rights enshrined in the Good Friday Agreement, including the commitment to parity of esteem and citizenship.

“Sinn Féin want a reconciled and united Ireland where everyone’s rights and identity are respected.

“The upcoming local government elections are a chance for the people of the Causeway Coast and Glens to help return a stronger Sinn Féin team to forward the progressive politics of equality, rights and Irish unity.”
