Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Anti-Jewish attacks 'sickening' says Doolan

13 May, 2005

Sinn Féin Dublin City Councillor, Daithi Doolan, reacting to the continuing racist and anti-Semitic campaign in the Dublin South East area, has called on those involved in the campaign to desist from their "hateful activities". He described the attacks as "sickening" and said they were without justification.

Cllr. Doolan said, "These worrying and indeed sickening anti-Semitic attacks have been escalating in this area over the last few months. Such attacks are sectarian, and they are absolutely abhorrent and unacceptable. There never was nor could there ever be any justification whatsoever for such attacks. But condemnation is not enough. Robust action is needed. I would like to welcome Dublin City Council's decision of last Monday to agree to deal rapidly and effectively when graffiti of a racist or sectarian nature appears around the city."

Cllr Doolan went on to say, "I would call on those involved in this campaign to desist from your hateful activities." ENDS
