British Army recruitment drive in schools deplorable – McLaughlin

1 Mins read

Sinn Féin councillor Cathal McLaughlin has called on young people to reject attempts by the British army to recruit students at schools and colleges.

Cllr McLaughlin said:

“Schools and colleges should be places of learning where young people and others can expand their horizons and opportunities.

“They should not be used to recruit young people for imperialist conflicts.

“In Ireland we know all too well the brutality of the British army and the pain and misery their actions have caused to so many families”.

Mr McLaughlin was speaking after parents with serious concerns contacted him with issues surrounding recent visits by the British crown forces to schools in the Ballymoney area.

“The parents of two teenage girls in particular said their daughters were misled and bewildered by the approach of the cadets involved in the recruitment drive.

“I am calling on students to reject the British army’s attempts to sign up new recruits at schools across the borough.”
