"Diversity Matters" Briefing paper welcomed
Sinn Féin spokesperson for disability and Assembly member for Mid Ulster, Geraldine Dougan has welcomed the publication of the Diversity Matters briefing paper.
Mrs Dougan said:
"I welcome the publication of this paper which highlights the problem of 'Hate Crimes' in Ireland. We believe Ireland should be an inclusive and diverse society in which people want to work and live.
"Sinn Féin condemns crimes committed against people on the grounds of race, religion, sexual orientation or because they have a disability and we support the introduction of such legislation to protect particular individuals and groups."
"We hope that such measures will deter those who carry out such activities and make Ireland a better place for us all to live" ENDS
