Bullets in post will not deflect Sinn Féin – Gerry Kelly

19 December, 2012 - by Gerry Kelly

Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly said the live bullets sent to Alex Maskey and himself were obviously linked to the current street protests being orchestrated by loyalist paramilitaries.


Gerry Kelly said:


“Following recent death threats against party members including myself this is obviously a step up in the attempt to intimidate elected representatives.


“It is obviously connected to the current protests against the democratic decision taken at Belfast City Council. These protests are being orchestrated by loyalist paramilitaries and attended by members of the two main unionist parties.


“This will not deflect Sinn Féin from our work of seeking parity of esteem when it comes to reflecting people’s Irishness and Britishness.


“There were no violent protests in Lisburn and elsewhere when the decision to go for designated days had the support of unionists.


“Obviously protestors have been wound up prior to the decision in Belfast and those that have kept up the tension need to reflect on what they have created.”
