Hazzard says campaign will not be deterred by destruction of 70 posters
Sinn Féin MLA and Westminster candidate in South Down Chris Hazzard said the tearing down and destruction of 70 of his election posters in the Mournes was a sign that people are afraid of the momentum and positivity around his campaign.
Chris Hazzard said:
“We discovered this morning that 70 of our election posters have been torn down and destroyed before being dumped at Kilkeel harbour.
“Clearly some people are afraid of change and the positive momentum around Sinn Féin’s campaign in South Down. There were also large posters destroyed showing Sinn Féin’s support for the campaign to save services at Daisy Hill Hospital.
“Despite this anti-democratic vandalism the Sinn Féin team in South Down will not be deterred and we will continue to offer the people of the constituency a fresh, positive, equality based alternative.”
