Sinn Fein's Gerry Adams Wants Irish-America's Help

| by Sinn Fein

WASHINGTON --- Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams spoke in Washington, DC today regarding his plans to host two conferences in the U.S. in June designed to engage Irish Americans in the pursuit of an independent, united Ireland under the terms of the Good Friday Agreement.

Addressing the National Press Club, Mr. Adams stated that Sinn Fein is currently engaged in an outreach to the Irish diaspora throughout the world regarding the best way to achieve a united Ireland and will bring this effort to New York and San Francisco in June. He said that after consultation with the worldwide diaspora, Sinn Fein expects to publish a plan of action.

Mr. Adams spoke in the aftermath of the violence in Northern Ireland last week, which he denounced as an attack on the peace process and the Good Friday Agreement. But he made clear it will not deter Sinn Fein from its course -- the pursuit of a united Ireland by peaceful, democratic means consistent with the Good Friday Agreement.
