Sectarianism and social injustice must be tackled - McCann

10 October, 2013 - by Jennifer McCann


Junior Minister and Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann said sectarianism and social injustices that continue to divide our society must be tackled if we are to move forward.

Speaking at an event in Derry organised by representatives from the Garden of Reflection Project the West Belfast MLA said:

“As we continue our journey from conflict to peace and reconciliation, we need to work harder at challenging sectarianism and the attitudes that lead to intolerance and prejudice.

“We must also tackle poverty and disadvantage if we are to create a more just and equal society for all.

“There is an onus on all of us in society to participate in building relationships that will unite our community and improve peoples economic and social wellbeing.”
