A new campaign, “Make it Work”, has been launched today to try and mobilise civil society’s support for the new talks process that have begun in Northern Ireland. The campaign asks people to show their support for the new talks by supporting the following statement:

“We believe that the current talks process offers an important opportunity for our politicians, and all those with a shared responsibility, to resolve and agree some of the very difficult issues facing our community. We recognise that significant progress has been made over the past years, and we also acknowledge that there are still many challenges ahead. We have come together to offer our encouragement and support to all of those involved in the process. We accept that the range of outcomes will probably involve accommodations along the way. However, through agreement we firmly believe that these talks provide a critical opportunity to move forward together in the interests of our community, and to secure a better future for all.”
