Joint Statement by Representatives of Sinn Féin (SF) and the Progressive Unionist Party (PUP), on the future of community relations in the Foyle Electoral Constituency, (18 September 2006)
"We are a society that is moving away from conflict and who share a common humanity.
Conflict has no place in our future - a shared future that is based upon equality for all our people and a genuine process of reconciliation between differing traditions and cultural identities.
A future where our common experience of poverty and sectarian division is ended.
We must be confident in building a better future for ourselves and our children.
We must show leadership and not be afraid to take risks.
In this regard our two Parties have committed to and embarked upon a sustained dialogue to develop initiatives based upon common and agreed community issues that will function within and between our communities."
Councillor Lynn Fleming (SF)
