Mullan hits out as Saoradh forces cancellation of youth event

4 April, 2019 - by Karen Mullan

It is a disgrace that a planned youth conference in Derry was cancelled due to protest threats from dissident group Saoradh, Foyle Sinn Féin MLA Karen Mullan has said.

Karen Mullan commented: “It is disgraceful that a youth organisation seeking to provide a positive platform to young people should be forced to cancel it due to the actions of Saoradh.

“The fact that Saoradh refused to even engage with the youth club is typical of their failure to rationalise or defend their own actions.

“They should withdraw the threat to protest and allow the youth club to get on with the positive work they are doing within this community every day of the week.”
