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.
On #BrexitDay it's also important to thank our friends and colleagues in QUB, who have provided support to our events. The clarification and explanations on the #EU and also the #Brexit process provided by @QUBPolicy experts were much appreciated. @DPhinnemore @hayward_katy
While there is nothing to celebrate today itself, we would like to thank all our members who have campaigned for the pro-European cause. We are still here and look forward to working with @emireland and others. #BrexitDay
We would like to thank the staff of the EC Office in Belfast, @EUOfficeNI , for all their support over the years. Today is a sad day for the staff there in the Dublin Rd and NI has greatly benefited from the work they have done in representing us to @EU_Commission. #BrexitDay
Today is a sad day for all those who believe in European cooperation and reconciliation. We leave an organisation that has brought relative peace and relative prosperity to our continent, and enter uncertain times. #BrexitDay
Today, @EU_Commission decided to ask the Court of Justice to impose interim measures ordering Polish gov to suspend the functioning of the Disciplinary Chamber of the Supreme Court. We remain ready to engage in a constructive dialogue based on fairness and respect with #Poland.
