The Socialist Workers' Party called today’s rejection of the Lisbon Treaty a victory for everyone who opposes a Europe dominated by big business.
As counting continues to reveal a resounding victory for the No camp the SWP described the result as a victory for everyone who opposes the new militarism that would be introduced by the Treaty.
A statement from the SWP read: "Many of the 490 million people in Europe who were deprived of their right to vote on this Treaty will be also delighted. In rejecting Lisbon. Irish voters have struck a blow for democracy and demonstrated their solidarity with their fellow Europeans.
"This failure to ratify the Lisbon treaty must surely be the final nail in this undemocratic treaty. There is no room for renegotiation and we call upon the Irish government and the EU Commission to take the Lisbon Treaty off the table in its entirety.
"People did not reject aspects of the Treaty, they rejected the whole package and their vote must be respected."
