Adams calls for Waterford protests to stop
Sinn Féin Leader Gerry Adams TD has criticised protests in Waterford City outside the home of a Roma family and asked for them to stop.
Speaking this evening Gerry Adams said:
"The activity we have witnessed in Waterford City over the past two nights is unacceptable. There can be no room in society for this type of behaviour.
"Anyone with information relating to allegations of criminality should bring that to the proper authorities.
"The protests we have witnessed are wrong. They have been hijacked by a racist minority who want to instil fear. A number of children were in the house targeted by these protestors.
"I am calling on those behind these protests to desist. It is the responsibility of An Garda Siochana to investigate allegations of crime and for the justice system to determine innocence or guilt."
