For over 100 years now Sinn Féin has been to the forefront of bringing about change in Ireland. Republicans and Socialists from Constance Markievicz, James Connolly and Liam Mellows to Bobby Sands, Mairéad Farrell and Joe Cahill have brought us closer to our goal of Irish unity and independence. Today’s generation of republicans continue that work. Sinn Féin is now one of the largest party's on the island of Ireland. We have five Ministers in government in the north, including joint First Minister Martin McGuinness. In 2011 we received our highest electoral support since the partition of Ireland. We have 14 TDs in the Dáil, three Senators in the Seanad, 29 MLAs in the Six County Assembly, an MEP in Europe and almost 300 council seats across the island. We are delivering real change. We are continuing to build the party across the south and have been leading campaigns for job creation and retention and in defence of public services and local communities. We have launched major policy documents around job creation and public finance. Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams has initiated a renewed campaign around Irish unity to build widespread support in Ireland for re-unification and to bring the Irish diaspora together behind this demand. We are also continuing to use our experience of conflict resolution to help other peace processes around the world including in the Middle East. Join with us in building an Ireland of equals.
