The last Assembly election happened when Martin McGuinness resigned,

0:00:130:00:16

because of the RHI scandal

0:00:160:00:18

and the refusal of the DUP to deliver rights for all citizens.

0:00:180:00:23

Your votes transformed the political landscape.

0:00:230:00:25

You knew the power of your vote, and you gave Sinn Fein a mandate

0:00:270:00:30

to set up an Executive, based on equality, respect and integrity.

0:00:300:00:35

We are standing firm on that commitment.

0:00:350:00:38

I'm asking you to stand firm also.

0:00:380:00:41

When talks resume on restoring power-sharing,

0:00:410:00:43

Sinn Fein will go back to finish the job.

0:00:430:00:46

Ta an toghchan seo faoi Brexit fosta.

0:00:500:00:53

This election is also about Brexit.

0:00:530:00:56

Theresa May wants a free hand to take us out of the European Union.

0:00:560:01:00

She wants to disregard the wishes of the people here,

0:01:000:01:03

from all walks of life, who rejected Brexit last June.

0:01:030:01:07

So does the DUP.

0:01:070:01:08

Brexit will be a disaster for our economy, for local businesses,

0:01:120:01:16

for farmers in the agri-food industry, for the health service,

0:01:160:01:19

for workers' rights and for border communities.

0:01:190:01:22

Sinn Fein are totally opposed to a border.

0:01:220:01:25

Sinn Fein is the only party to put forward

0:01:260:01:29

a credible alternative to Brexit.

0:01:290:01:31

We are building support for special status

0:01:320:01:35

that allows the North to stay within the EU,

0:01:350:01:38

and we make that case as the largest political party on this island,

0:01:380:01:42

with representation in Belfast, Dublin, London and Brussels.

0:01:420:01:47

Every vote we get strengthens our call

0:01:470:01:49

to respect the democratic wishes of the people

0:01:490:01:53

to remain within the EU.

0:01:530:01:54

Sinn Fein wants a modern, diverse and prosperous society.

0:01:540:01:58

We want a united Ireland.

0:01:580:02:00

In the meantime, we need you to show your support for an Executive

0:02:000:02:04

that delivers for everyone.

0:02:040:02:06

The Tories are determined to continue their austerity policy

0:02:070:02:10

and their attacks on public services.

0:02:100:02:13

A new Executive needs to stand up against that agenda.

0:02:130:02:16

Ta muid i re nua polaitiuil.

0:02:170:02:19

We are in a new political era.

0:02:220:02:24

There are opportunities for real change.

0:02:240:02:26

What Sinn Fein wins in this election

0:02:260:02:28

is a win for everyone who wants to see new, progressive politics.

0:02:280:02:33

So, on June the 8th, know the power of your vote.

0:02:330:02:36

I'm asking you to vote Sinn Fein.

0:02:360:02:38

Vote for equality, for rights and for unity.

0:02:380:02:41
