Brexit, The Border And Partition- Public Meetings And Pamphlet Launch

86

People Before Profit are holding a series of meeting to launch a new pamphlet, Brexit, The Border and Partition written a UCD academic, Kieran Allen.

The meetings will take place in Cavan, Monaghan, Sligo, Dundalk and Dublin.

The meeting coincide with debates on the recent withdrawal agreement between Britain and the EU. There is one positive in this:  It rules out a hard border on the island of Ireland. This provision represents a major defeat for the DUP.

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.
