SOT, Sandra Duffy, Sinn Fein Councilor: "We're here on the Derry-Donegal border here at Muff, we're protesting along with Border Communities Against Brexit, we're sending a very clear message to the EU that this area, this community cannot deal with Brexit. Brexit will be an absolute disaster for these communities, it will be a disaster for this economy and it will be a disaster for people living in these areas, so we stand in full solidarity with the people here, and we want the EU to know that we do not want Brexit in any form, we cannot have a hardening of the border here, and we stand in full solidarity with the people living here."

SCRIPT
Dozens of protesters gathered in the Irish town of Muff along the Derry-Donegal border crossing with Northern Ireland on Wednesday, to call for 'No Hard Border' and protest the UK's looming exit from the European Union.
Protesters can be seen waving banners and placards at passing traffic.
Sandra Duffy, a Sinn Fein councillor, was present at the rally and said "we're sending a very clear message to the EU that this area, this community cannot deal with Brexit. Brexit will be an absolute disaster for these communities, it will be a disaster for this economy and it will be a disaster for people living in these areas, so we stand in full solidarity with the people here."
Earlier on Monday the Queen's speech at the state opening of Parliament stressed that delivering Brexit by October 31 is the government's "priority" and that free movement will be replaced with a "fair, modern and global immigration system" after Brexit.
