The European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) – the longest established pro-European organisation in the North- has rejected comments by shadow international trade secretary, Barry Gardiner, that a referendum on the final Brexit deal would cause ‘social unrest’ and instead has called on the British Labour Party to support a Peoples Vote.
The Chairperson of the European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) Donal Lyons has warned that the economy ‘doesn’t run on bravado’ following a leaked report which suggested the Northern Ireland economy would take a 12% hit if there is no deal between the UK and EU.
The outgoing European Movement NI Chair has warned there is a ‘very serious risk, given yet another failure by the UK Government to clarify its own negotiating position, that UK-EU relations will be badly damaged and that the island of Ireland will bear the brunt of the punishment for this’.
The European Movement in Northern Ireland has responded to reports that an internal EU paper has suggested that the avoidance of a hard border on the island of Ireland ‘effectively requires Northern Ireland remaining in the single market and the customs union’.
The European Movement in Northern Ireland (EMNI) has said the speech by the British Prime Minister in Florence on 22 September did not put forward any ideas to deal with the border on the island of Ireland as the UK leaves the Customs Union.
It is a profoundly sad day that we have lost our greatest champion of European cooperation. #JohnHume was an internationalist who showed us where we should go. We need more of these leaders today. He will be greatly missed.
All the best to our fellow Europeans in the #Schengen area today as they move tentatively out of the severe restrictions posed by the #COVID19 #pandemic. While we can tread again, we can tread carefully.
We know that fundamentally all #EU27 members are committed to the principles of #Solidarity, cooperation, and reconciliation which underpinned the founding of the #EEC which will help all of Europe work together to get out of this current #COVIDー19 crisis. #EuropeDay2020
