Sinn Féin Westminster General Election Candidate for East Derry, Dermot Nicholl has condemned the burning of Sinn Féin election billboard in Limavady.
Cllr. Nicholl said “This act is an attack on democracy.”
“It is an attempt to intimidate Sinn Féin activists and representatives from carrying out political activity and doing their best to help their community and constituents.”
“The perpetrators however have failed to do this and our activists will continue to knock on doors every night as we have been doing in Limavady and right across this constituency.”
He added “This incident has been reported to the police as a hate crime comparable to burning election posters on bonfires and must be condemned by all of the parties locally .”
