“There is no sense - and no honour - in playing down what is called the Irish ‘dimension’ or appearing to apologise for our existence,” the Derry Nationalist Party has said.

In a statement titled ‘Manifesto for Peace’, the party declared, “Only a united country will provide a united people.”

Asking the question, ‘Why Nationalism?’ the party said - “For the very practical reason that therein lies the only hope of permanent peace. There is no sense and no honour in playing down what is called the Irish ‘dimension.’ or appearing to apologise for our existence, Only a united country will provide a united people.

“No words nor political juggling will create a separate country out of these Six Counties.”
