VICA Presents...Disenfranchised: The Irish in Britain
Date: July 19, 2017
Venue: London Irish Centre, 52 Camden Square
Price: Free - Must be pre-booked
Brought to you by 'Votes for Irish Citizens Abroad' -
The Irish Government has announced its intention to hold a referendum on whether Irish people living outside of the State should be allowed to vote in presidential elections.
We're also expecting a referendum on the 8th Amendment to the Constitution next year - an issue of huge significance to Irish people the world over.
And Britain's decision to leave the EU will make Irish people living in the UK unrepresented EU citizens.
Join us on Wednesday 19th July for a discussion about the disenfranchised status of the Irish in Britain, and the work our community needs to do to make our voices heard on the issues we care about.
The panel will include -
Sean Kennedy, CEO of the London Irish Centre
Brian Hayes, Fine Gael MEP for Dublin
Breda Corish, Convenor for the London Irish Abortion Rights Campaign
Mary Hickman, Chair of Votes for Irish Citizens Abroad
