Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has condemned the recent vandalism of Brenda Chivers’ election posters in Limavady.
The East Derry MLA was speaking after K.A.T and crosshairs were painted on Councillor Chivers’ posters on Irish Green Street and The Glens area of Limavady last night.
Caoimhe Archibald said:
“The vandalism of election posters is a criminal offence and a clear attempt to frustrate the democratic process and upset our campaign to ensure the people of the Limavady area have a strong Sinn Féin voice representing them at council.
“The vandalism has been reported to the police as a hate crime.
“Sinn Féin have a democratic and legitimate right to campaign, and to bring our message of equality, rights and Irish Unity to the people of the Causeway Coast and Glens area.
“Despite efforts to undermine that message, Sinn Féin will not be deterred.”
