Hundreds expected as Donegal communities host Brexit protest this afternoon

first_imgHundreds of people in Donegal are expected to take part in Brexit protests this afternoon as the massive uncertainty over the process continues.The main focus of the rallies, organised by Border Communities Against Brexit (BCAB), is to protest against the United Kingdom’s departure from the European Union, hard or soft, on April 12.The rallies are among six taking place along the border. Sinn Féin Senator Padraig MacLochlainn has voiced his support for the BCAB protests, which will take place at various locations along the border this afternoon at 3pm.The Donegal-based Senator said: “I would encourage everyone to make their way to the border this weekend in protest against Brexit. Brexit poses a huge threat to jobs, our border communities, and the two economies on this island.“A majority of people in the north voted to remain and the Tories along with the DUP are ignoring this democratic mandate. Our rights, economy and agreements must be protected.“The antics on display at Westminster show clearly the complete disregard the British government has for Ireland, especially our border communities. Join us tomorrow and take a stand against Brexit.” Further uncertainty over Brexit was thrown in question yesterday when British MPs rejected Prime Minister Theresa May’s Withdrawal Agreement for the third time.A European Council meeting has now been scheduled for April 10 following the rejection of the agreement.Hundreds expected as Donegal communities host Brexit protest this afternoon was last modified: April 1st, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BrexitDonegal-Derry BorderNo deal brexitlast_img read more
