Gildernew condemns attack on election billboard
Sinn Féin's Michelle Gildernew has said an attack on election billboards in Dungannon was an attack on the democratic process.
Ms Gildernew said;
"An election billboard for my campaign was targeted by arsonists in Milltown Street, Dungannon yesterday and extensively damaged.
"This is the latest in a series of incidents involving my election posters and billboards.
“These attacks have followed personal attacks on me by representatives of the negative unionist alliance.
"It happened just hours after Sinn Féin held a successful election manifesto launch in the centre of Dungannon.
"This is clearly an attempt to attack the democratic process.
"Election posters and billboards from all parties should be treated with respect.
"These attacks will not deter me or any other Sinn Féin activists from delivering first-class representation, protecting communities from austerity.
