Flags should not be used to mark out territory – Kelly
Sinn Féin MLA Gerry Kelly has criticised the erection of flags on the Ballysillan Road of north Belfast including flags placed close to schools and a leisure centre.
Gerry Kelly said:
“Once again loyalists have erected flags on a main road in north Belfast, some of them close to schools and a leisure centre in a clear attempt at marking out territory.
“Those involved in the erection of these flags have no concern for the people who live, work, play or who are being educated in these shared spaces.
“It’s well past time that political unionism showed some leadership on this issue and worked to bring this annual coat trailing exercise to an end.”
