Anti-Brexit demonstrations will be held next week at various border locations

A MAJOR anti-Brexit protest is due to be held at several border locations next week.

Border Communities Against Brexit (BCAB) said it has organised a "significant and major people's demonstration against Brexit and a hard border" and has appealed for people to join them at various points along the border on March 30.

In a statement, BCAB said it "remains focused on ensuring that Irish voices from the border area continue to be heard across the world at this the critical time".

It appealed to "everyone living along the border, on either side, to make an effort to attend their nearest demonstration".

"We will be sending to a very clear message that the people of the border region and, indeed, the people of Ireland will not acquiesce in any construction of new border installations, customs posts or on any restriction of movement in their own country," it said.

"We will not tolerate any new hard border in Ireland.

"It is time to make your voice heard. It is time for action. It is time to protest."

The demonstrations, which will take place at 3pm, are set to be held at: Old Dublin Road, Carrickcarnon, Belcoo-Blacklion, Aghalane, Moybridge, Aughnacloy, Lifford Bridge and Bridgend.
