Anderson to speak at Basque international solidarity event

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson will speak at an event in St Mary’s tonight about the Basque peace process as part of Féile an Phobail. 

Martina Anderson said: 

“I was honoured to be asked to take part in a discussion as part of this year’s Féile and Phobail programme alongside my friend and fellow MEP Josu Jurasti. 

“The discussion will look at the recent developments in the Basque peace process, as well as what lessons can be learned from our own peace process here in Ireland. 

“It is important that we share our experiences internationally so that we can assist other people around the world who are involved in peace processes or struggling for justice and rights. 

“Events like this highlight the importance and value of our international solidarity work. 

“Sinn Féin will continue to support the Basque people in the peace process and their campaign for an independent homeland.”
