Racist attacks in Ballymena condemned - McKay

22 November, 2015


Sinn Féin MLA for North Antrim, Daithí McKay, has said there is no place for racism in our society.


Condemning the arson attacks on two cars belonging to Eastern Europeans at Dunclug Gardens in Ballymena Mr McKay said:

"These attacks are totally wrong and must be condemned outright. Thankfully no one was injured in these incidents.

"There can be no place for racism in our society. It is those behind these attacks who are not welcome in our society – not those who they targeted.

"Whoever carried out this attack have nothing to offer this community.

"I would urge anyone with information on this attack to bring it forward to the PSNI to ensure those responsible can be brought to justice."
