Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said the north’s unionist MEPs have let down the majority who voted to remain in the EU. 

Martina Anderson said: 

“Today in the European Parliament 516 MEPs from across Europe voted for a joint resolution which seeks to protect the interests of the people of the North during the Brexit negotiations. 

“The resolution contained reference to protecting the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts, recognising the unique circumstances the north faces as a result of Brexit and calls for no hardening of the border on Ireland. 

“MEPs with differing political views came together to support this resolution. 

“Sadly the north’s two unionist MEPs could not bring themselves to support it. 

“In doing so they have let down the majority of voters in north who voted to remain in the EU and have also let down those in our agriculture industry, our community sector and people from all walks of life. 

“This is not the first time they have voted against the interests of the people of the north on Brexit. In the aftermath of the referendum 540 MEPs voted to maintain PEACE funding post-Brexit and once again their names were absent from the list. 

“Clearly they are more concerned with reinforcing partition than the economy of the north or the wellbeing of its people.

“Sinn Féin will continue to build on the support we have in Europe for our case for designated special status for the north within the EU.”

 

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has called on the Taoiseach and the European Council to act on a joint resolution debated at the European Parliament calling for the north to be protected from Brexit. 

Speaking following a debate in the  European Parliament in Strasbourg on Brexit, Martina Anderson said: 

“It’s clear from this resolution that Ireland has friends in Europe.

“We feel now that the European Parliament is a partner to the people of the north of Ireland – and particularly those living in partitioned border areas.

“Martin McGuinness travelled to the European Parliament and met virtually all of the signatories to this resolution and asked; that you preserve the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts, that there would be no hardening of the Irish border; and that the unique circumstances and special status of Ireland would be supported

“This is why we associate ourselves with this resolution.

“There is now an onus on the Taoiseach and the European Council to take heed of this, stand up for the Good Friday Agreement in all its parts and act in the best interests of Irish citizens. 

“It is clear we have support across Europe. Enda Kenny and the Irish government must now harness that support and stand up for Ireland and argue for designated status for the north within the EU.”

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has met with EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager to discuss the RHI scandal. 

Speaking from Strasbourg, Martina Anderson said: 

“I met today with the EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager to discuss the RHI scandal. 

“We discussed the steps the Commission will take to deal with the RHI scheme, particularly around reducing the cost to the public purse. 

“The Commission has now approved changes to the RHI scheme, bringing in a lower tariff and placing a cap on operating hours.

 “But this will only last until next March next year, and we still need a comprehensive plan to prevent the waste of public funds.

 “Commissioner Vestager said that the Departments of the Economy and Finance should bring forward a comprehensive plan which she will work with in order to address this mess.

“I will continue to meet with the Commissioner and others to stop this drain on the public finances.”

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said future infrastructure developments could be jeopardised as a result of Brexit. 

Martina Anderson said: 

“The north has benefitted hugely from European Union funding to help develop our transport infrastructure network. 

“I welcome the fact that the Special European Union Programmes Body (SEUPB) has approved funding for the North West Transport Hub at the old Waterside railway station. 

“We want to see more of these type of projects in the future but if the British Tory government succeeds in dragging us out of the EU then this type of funding will not be available. 

“That, along with so many others things, is the impact of the British government’s Brexit agenda. 

“Sinn Féin has put forward a case for the north to secure designated special status within the EU and we are working to build support for that across Ireland and across Europe.”

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said there is an awareness in the European institutions that the British government’s Brexit agenda would be a disaster for Ireland. 

The Sinn Féin MEP said: 

“I led a delegation of representatives of Border Communities Against Brexit and Sinn Féin representatives from north and south today to discuss Brexit with key players in the European Institutions. 

“We met with representatives from leading groups in the European Parliament to discuss the disastrous impact Brexit would have on Ireland and on border communities in particular. 

“There is an awareness in Europe of the unique circumstances we face and the impact Brexit would have. 

“We also met with MEPs from Fianna Fáil, Fine Gael and representatives of the Irish government in Brussels and impressed on them the need for the Irish government to act in the national interest of all Irish citizens under the Good Friday Agreement. 

“Tomorrow we will meet representatives from the office of Michel Barnier,  the European Union’s chief negotiator on Brexit to get support for our campaign for designated special status for the North within the EU.”

Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has called for the immediate release of eleven People’s Democratic Party (HDP) MPs arrested by Turkish security forces on November 4.screen-shot-2016-11-09-at-15-16-09

Ms Anderson said; 

“This mass arrest of MPs from Turkey’s third largest parliamentary party, including its two co-chairs, is an attack on democracy designed to silence the main voice of opposition.

“The reasons for their arrests are spurious and they set a dangerous precedent for the future of democracy in Turkey.

“Since July last year the Turkish state has been engaging in a merciless military campaign against its own Kurdish population, including mass detention, military curfews, shoot-to-kill, and military bombardment of civilian areas.

“The situation in Turkey is now deteriorating rapidly, with the government escalating its crackdown on journalists, independent media, judges and civil society.

“Sadly, but understandably, the HDP has now declared that it will cease its parliamentary activities in response to the ongoing persecution.

“I call on the Turkish government to immediately release the eleven MPs and all other HDP representatives that have been detained, and to end the attacks on democratic politics and freedom of expression.

“The EU and international community cannot remain silent in the face of this repression, and must act immediately to ensure the immediate release of the HDP MPs.”
