Deputy Mayor Councillor Darryl Wilson has called for a clear message to be sent to those involved in terrorism, that their actions are not and never have been acceptable.
In a statement, Cllr Wilson said : “Today we live in a world where the threat and actions of terrorism are all too real, here on our own doorstep and further afield. We must do all within our power to deal with those who encourage and endorse such actions, brainwashing their followers with the lie that terrorism achieves results.”
“Glorifying and celebrating such events no matter when they happened is wholly unacceptable and insensitive towards the victims, survivors and their loved ones to say the least.”
“Together we must fight to eradicate that threat and send out a clear message to those involved that such actions have not, and never will be acceptable. United we stand”
