Society must stand together against hate crimes - McGuinness

29 July, 2014 - by Martin McGuinness

Sinn Féin’s deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness MLA has called on society to stand together against those who are involved in hate crimes.

Speaking following coordinated attacks against the Romanian community in East Belfast over night and an attack on a DUP Councillors home in Coleraine Mr McGuinness said: 

“Overnight we have witnessed a number of hate crimes. These are wrong and to be condemned outright.

“The extent of the attacks in East Belfast strongly indicates a level of co-ordination targeting the Romanian community. 

“Further to this a third attack on the home of the DUP Councillor, George Duddy, is equally offensive.

“There can no room for racism or sectarianism in our society. 

“Our thoughts are with all of those who have suffered intolerance in these attacks. As a community we all must stand united against those who wish to engage in hate crimes and face these actions down.”
