TD Peadar Tóibín and his new All Ireland Movement are holding a public meeting in Newry this week. It's part of a series of meetings being held through the 32 counties and the Meath West TD will be speaking on the night.

Mr Tóibín who resigned from Sinn Fein in November said "3,000 people have already attended our meetings around the country. Hundreds of people are joining as members every week. We have new Cumann being formed every night. And already 9 elected reps have declared for us including Cllr Rosemarie Shields from Fermanagh Omagh District Council."

“There is an avalanche of people who are getting in contact with us. Many of these people, who are from a Sinn Fein, SDLP, Fianna Fáil background are seriously frustrated that the leaderships of their parties. Many are saying to us that their leaders are actively doing damage to their core values. They are saying that their leaders are going in the wrong direction”.

“Some have said that due to the length of time that they have been members of their parties and the close ties of friendship and comradeship that they are cautious about leaving. I understand that feeling all too well. But political parties are not social clubs. Political activism is much too important. If you are a member of a party that is actively doing damage to your core values, you are complicit in that damage”.

“The anger in the SDLP is palpable. The level of disrespect and ignorance being displayed by FF Headquarters to SDLP members is amazing. They are leaving them decay while waiting in limbo for a decision that may never come. FF headquarters give them enough to keep them hanging on but will never make a decision”.

“At these meetings it’s like watching a pressure cooker valve being released at meetings. People are saying that they have no one to vote for, that all the parties are uniform on so many issues. The truth is respectful opposition is not the enemy, it’s an important part of a health a democracy.
“Many people in the north are in food poverty, housing poverty and poor access to health care. Yet Stormont is in stalemate for over 2 years. The Good Friday Agreement was a great success but the institutions with in it are not working.  We need to put an end to the dysfunction”.

“We are an All-Ireland party. We seek the unity of the Irish people north and south. We seek the self-determination & Irish independence north and south. A seek to develop a broad inclusive organisation to achieve that. It is our view that that Sinn Féin has narrowed the space in which people can participate. We will be broader Republican party with room for Catholic, Protestant and Dissenter”.

“In recent months the leadership of Sinn Fein have threatened that the “North is Next” with regards on demand abortion services. Many genuine republicans and nationalists have been shocked by the radical change that has happened within the SF and SDLP leadership in just a few short years”.

“We believe that all human life should be protected and that no mother or child should be left behind. We seek to protect the most vulnerable in society at all stages of life. We believe that all of the necessary economic and social supports must be provided to mothers and families to ensure that they know that they can raise their children in confidence."

The public meeting is on Wednesday  23 January at 7.30pm in the Canal Court Hotel.
