Burning of posters and flags unacceptable in Articlave & Limavady – Archibald

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said the burning of election posters and Irish tricolours on bonfires is unacceptable and should be treated by the police as a hate crime.

The East Derry MLA was speaking after stolen election posters and flags were placed on bonfires in Limavady and Articlave.

“The posters placed on bonfires were stolen during the election campaign and were reported as such.

“Election material, poster and billboards belonging to all political parties should be treated with respect.

“These incidents have been reported to the Police as hate crimes but we now require action.

“Every year incidents like these occur across the north. They are distasteful and damaging to community relations.  It is time for leadership to be shown from within the unionist community to discontinue this outdated behavior which has no place in our society moving forward.”
