Fianna Fail for Lisbon Treaty

As you know, the country will go to the polls on October 2nd to vote on the Lisbon Treaty Referendum. Fianna Fáil will of course be strongly campaigning for a Yes vote. Later today, An Taoiseach, Brian Cowen T.D., will launch the Party's Lisbon Treaty Campaign.Ahead of the referendum I'm delighted to announce that Fianna Fáil has set up a dedicated Lisbon Treaty website, which you can access here.The website contains all the latest news from the Party's referendum campaign, why is it vital that we vote Yes in this referendum and the factual position regarding common misconceptions about the Lisbon Treaty.The Treaty is so important for a country of our size. It guarantees that Ireland's concerns will be heard at the European Union Commission level - and it's the best way to enhance our economic situation here at home.A reformed European Union is necessary to tackle the economic crisis. If passed, the Lisbon Treaty will enhance Ireland's ability to attract investment and increase trade.These are just a few reasons to vote "YES" on the Treaty, but we want to hear from you. Sign up and let us know why you're voting "YES." You can even upload a photo of yourself holding a sign with your personal reason for a "YES" vote. hope you'll take this opportunity to take a look at the site and visit it regularly ahead of the referendum. Other features will be added to the site throughout the course of the campaign. Let us know your reason for supporting the Treaty by signing up to show your support. Make sure to include a photo of you holding your reason for voting "YES". Yours sincerely,Micheál Martin TDDirector of Elections and Minister for Foreign Affairs
