Ó Donnghaile condemns rampage of racism in east Belfast

29 July, 2014

Sinn Féin councillor Niall Ó Donnghaile has condemned a series of overnight racist attacks in east Belfast. 

Speaking after windows were broken, cars damaged and racist slogans painted on walls in a number of areas in east Belfast, councillor Ó Donnghaile said; 

"This rampage of racism must be condemned by everyone. 

"We want to create a welcoming city where people from all backgrounds can live in peace, free from fear of attack. 

"The spread and scale of these attacks is very concerning and suggests a high degree of organisation. 

"There can be no place in society for racism and all sections of the community in east Belfast must stand  together and face down the racists in our midst. 

"I would call on anyone with information on these attacks to contact the PSNI so those responsible can be apprehended."
