The Weekly Digest
Mary Lou McDonald briefs US political leaders
Sinn Féin President Mary Lou McDonald TD is travelling to North America to brief members of the US Administration and senior Congressional Leaders as concerns grow that the British government will breach two international Agreements; the Stormont House Agreement on dealing with the past and unilaterally trigger Article 16 of the Irish protocol.
Teachta McDonald said;
„The majority of people and parties in the north opposed Brexit, and want to see the Irish protocol working, not undermined. The majority of people and parties in the north are universally opposed to the proposed amnesty for British soldiers and efforts to prevent families from getting truth and justice.”

Pearse Doherty tells it like it is on sky high rents
Sinn Féin spokesperson on Finance Pearse Doherty told it like it is to Finance Minister Pascal Donohoe about the sky high rents facing thousands of people as the housing crisis continues to grow.
The Minister didn’t want to hear the truth as he voted down a Sinn Féin amendment to put €1,500 back into renters’ pockets

Sinn Féin launch survey to hear from women about menopause and healthcare supports
Sinn Féin representatives have today launched a survey to hear from women about their experiences with menopause. The survey invites women to share their personal experience and their views on the supports in place for women during menopause.
The results will shape policy proposals on addressing this critical and often difficult stage in women’s lives.

Sinn Féin Bill to Ban Fracking
Sinn Féin MLA Áine Murphy has said it’s time to ban fracking to protect the environment and future generations.
Speaking ahead of a Sinn Féin bill to outlaw the practice coming to the Assembly floor, the Fermanagh & South Tyrone MLA said:
„If passed, this bill will outlaw the exploration and extraction of petroleum by fracking. This will also mean an effective ban on fracking across the island and will bring the north into line with a similar ban in the rest of Ireland.
