European Citizens Prize events in Brussels
11th October 2017 @ 8:00 am - 12th October 2017 @ 5:00 pm
Nominated by 4 Sinn Féin MEPs and 2 Independant MEPs, Marian Harkin and Nessa Childers, the cross-sectoral campaign group, Border Communities Against Brexit have won the prestigious European Citizens Prize 2017.
This is a fantastic achievement for the group, which was established in response to the Brexit referendum result which presents the threat that the North of Ireland will be dragged out of the EU with disastrous consequences for the entire island of Ireland. This of course would be in contravention of the wishes of the people in the North who voted to remain in the EU.
The group have lobbied in Ireland and in Brussels against Brexit and this award is a recognition of their resolute efforts.
