"The Nineteenth century saw a great Springtime of Nations as the revolutions of 1848 saw new countries created the length and breadth of Europe. In our world today we are now seeing our own Spring Awakening with people and cultures that have long been dormant and subdued asserting their right to exist, their right to dream." Adam Price MP

PUTTING IRISH UNITY ON THE AGENDA
More than 500 people from across the country attended the 20 February Conference in London, Putting Irish Unity on the Agenda.
In a positive and wide-ranging discussion, speakers from Britain and Ireland joined those attending in covering a number of key issues in relation to Ireland future, and the future relationship between the two Irelands. Leading figures from Sinn Féin joined other political representatives, Irish community organisations, sporting and cultural representatives, academics, trade unionists and many others.
Important issues such as the constitutional future, the economy, the role of the Irish community in Britain, opening a dialogue with unionism and developing the peace process were all discussed in packed plenaries and seminars.
The conference has received a very positive response and widespread media coverage. Some of the media articles, reports and speeches from the conference are available here at the website. Future events to be announced.
