Sinn Féin MLAs John O’Dowd and Megan Fearon hosted a seminar on the impact of Brexit on human and equality rights in the Long Gallery, Stormont today.
 
Speaking after the event the party’s spokesperson on equality Megan Fearon said: 
"The Tory/DUP Brexit agenda will impact on all aspects of life in Ireland, but particularly on our human and equality rights here in the north. 
 
"It is an extension of the Tory attack on human rights but it will go further as it will also remove the rights’ protections we have secured as a result of our EU membership. 
 
"As today's Lucid talk opinion poll shows, 52 percent of respondents believe their rights will be reduced as a result of Brexit.
 
"For us we are very clear, the Good Friday Agreement in all of its parts which includes the rights of citizens in the north must be protected in order for the Brexit negotiations to move forward.
 
"The Taoiseach needs to stand firm on that over the next few days, as a co-guarantor of that agreement.
 
"We have clearly said that Designated Special status is what is required for us to remain in the EU and she has put that front and centre in the minds of leaders right across Europe.
 
"The issue is fundamentally one of rights and protection.
 
"We voted to remain.
 
"An opinion poll out today from Lucid Talk shows 76 percent support maintain EU standards and rights post Brexit.
 
"We are concerned that a range of rights will be impacted by Brexit in many areas of people’s lives.
 
"This a time to stand together, united on the common goals of Equality and Human rights.
 

"It is time to speak up and speak loud. And not to let anyone or any party disempower any of us on this island."

Sinn Féin MLA Cathal Boylan has welcomed a resolution from the UN that the world needs to completely stop plastic waste from entering the oceans.
 
The party’s spokesperson on climate change said:
“Marine litter is a growing concern and is one of the fastest-growing environmental problems.
 
“Under the UN proposal, governments would establish an international task force to advise on combating what the UN's oceans chief has described as a planetary crisis.
 

“We all have a responsibility to deal with this issue. The UN can't do it alone we need to work together at government level, with businesses and even individuals.”

Speaking after news that the Australian Parliament passed a Bill introducing marriage equality Sinn Féin equality spokesperson Megan Fearon said:
"News that the Australian parliament has passed a Bill that will allow two people regardless of their gender to marry is a welcome step.
 
"This comes after almost 79.5 percent supported a non-binding postal ballot in Australia to endorse a law. 
 
"Australia is now the 25th country in the world to have marriage equality. 
 

"It is Sinn Féin's belief that marriage equality should be extended to the north so that citizens here can be treated equally, with the same dignity and respect as citizens across the rest of these islands."
