People Before Profit to launch pamphlet in Dundalk tomorrow
People Before Profit are holding a meeting to launch a new pamphlet, Brexit, The Border and Partition written a UCD academic, Kieran Allen, in the Redeemer Community Family Resources Centre, on Saturday 8th of December at 4pm.
The meeting will coincide with debates on the recent withdrawal agreement between Britain and the EU. On their website, People Before Profit said; “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 Brexitand on how a united Ireland can be achieved.
