Border demonstrations to take place on Saturday

The Border Communities Against Brexit Group has announced a series of demonstrations along the border to oppose the threat by the British Government to trigger Article 16.

Five demonstrations will take place at various points along the border, on Saturday next at 3pm.

Events will be staged at Belcoo/Blacklion and at Lifford Bridge.


Damian McGinty says that Boris Johnson’s Government has been pursuing a reckless course in negotiations with the EU around the Protocol, including threats to trigger Article 16.

He says that communities, businesses, workers, farmers and students along the border want the Protocol to be implemented in order to protect jobs, livelihoods and community life on this island.

The Border Communities Against Brexit Group representative says communities along the border are determined not to be dragged back to the past.
