Anti-Brexit campaigners stage protest during Pelosi visit to Derry-Donegal border crossing
18 Apr 2019
Anti-Brexit campaigners staged a peaceful protest during a visit by the US Speaker of the House Representative to the Derry-Donegal border this morning. Ms Nancy Pelosi was accompanied by the Mayor of Derry City and Strabane District Council as she visited the border crossing on the main Derry to Buncrana Road. Speaking at Bridgend, Ms Pelosi said: "We believe that Brexit should be just an abhorration in this discussion as we continue to build and strengthen the peace that was generated by the Good Friday Agreement. "We come here out of respect for the courage of those who have participated in the accords. I did not come at that time, the last time I came was on the train before the accords. "I came by train with my daughter to Belfast and the difference from what we went through then and what we saw in terms of tanks and wire, well, you know full well what we saw. "That would be 21 years ago and what a difference there is now." She is due to give a keynote address in the Derry Guildhall later.
