Logue condemns attacks associated with bonfire

15 August, 2017 - by Patricia Logue

Sinn Féin councillor Patricia Logue has condemned attacks on members of the public and the PSNI in the Bogside area of Derry near a bonfire last night. 

Councillor Logue said: 

"These attacks on members of the public and the PSNI were wrong and must be condemned. 

"The local community does not want these attacks and those responsible have nothing to offer. 

"This is one of the many incidents of anti-social behaviour associated with this bonfire which is being built on a banking overlooking the Bogside. 

"We know all too well what happens at these type of bonfires and we are opposed to the burning of flags and posters on bonfires and associated hate crimes whether they are in Nailor's Row or Sandy Row. 

"There is a positive alternative to this bonfire through the Gasyard Féile and I would encourage the local community and the wider city to get behind this positive community event."
