Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald to Brief Congressional Leaders
Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald is to address the Congressional Friends of Ireland Caucus later today. The meeting will be an opportunity to update political representatives on the refusal of the British Government to honor their agreement on Brexit and how this is causing uncertainty for business and encouraging unionists' threats and protests.
Mary Lou will also raise the British Governments proposals to close down all effective investigations into their actions during the conflict and the issuing of an amnesty.
The British Government proposals have been rejected by all parties, victims groups, and the Irish Government. The British Government’s proposals must be taken off the table!!!
The only way forward to heal the past is by the implementation of the measures agreed by all parties at Stormont House.
This is a British Government like no other and requires a robust approach from the US to protect the agreements and progress.
We will keep you posted on the outcome of the meeting.
