People Before Profit to launch Brexit pamphlet in Dundalk this Saturday
People Before Profit will hold a meeting in Dundalk this Saturday to launch a new pamphlet, Brexit, The Border and Partition written by UCD academic, Kieran Allen.
The event in the Redeemer Community Family Resource Centre at 4pm is one of several being held around the country this week to launch the new publication.
People Before Profit said: “The meeting coincides with debates on the recent withdrawal agreement between Britain and the EU. There is one positive in this: It rules out a hard border on the island of Ireland. This provision represents a major defeat for the DUP.
“In the small print of the deal, there are other aspects which are unpalatable. There are the restrictions on state aid and there is even a commitment to support the Eu-Turkey deal designed to stop the movement of refugees. But that was only to be expected from any deal reached between Tories and neoliberals.
“However, the whole deal is likely to unravel after a vote on December 11th in the British House of Commons.
“In this scenario, a hard border could still emerge – and people power will be necessary to oppose any attempt to erect border posts.
“In the longer term, however, the issue of the partition of Ireland is likely to forcefully re-emerge. At these meetings, People Before Profit will be outlining its view both on Brexit and on how a united Ireland can be achieved.”
All are welcome to attend Saturday’s event in the Redeemer Centre at 4pm.
