Public Meeting - Martin McGuinness, Advancing the Irish Peace Process.
Advancing the Irish Peace Process
GUE/NGL is hosting a public meeting with Martin McGuinness, Joint First Minister of the North of Ireland,
Tuesday 14 of October 2014 , from 13:00 to 14:30 in room ASP 1G02.
The Peace Process in Ireland is an on-going process and continues to face serious challenges. Clear tensions illustrate the contentious issues such as Dealing with the Past; Flags and Emblems; and Parades and Protests that continue to threaten the Peace Process and undermine the political institutions in the North of Ireland. Unfortunately attempts by the US Diplomat Dr Richard Haass to find agreement on a framework for dealing with these issues last year failed.
In an effort to highlight the seriousness of such issues and the strains currently being experienced by the political process, Martin McGuinness will be visiting the European Parliament on 14th October to meet with various stakeholders.
A press point will be organised at 14:30 in the same room ASP 1G02
