Sinn Fein support two minutes silence for peace

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams MP said that republicans will support the `two minutes silence for peace' which is being organised throughout Ireland at 11am on Thursday.

Mr. Adams said:

``Sinn Fein will be supporting tomorrows `two minute silence for peace' which is being organised by the STOP campaign. Peace demands change.

``All of us have a responsibility to ensure that the desire for peace becomes a reality. It is important the people throughout the country have the opportunity not only to demonstrate their support for peace but are also involved fully in the ongoing search for peace.

``Sinn Fein's commitment to a peace process remains our priority.''
