Duffy slams 'despicable' poster attacks
Sinn Féin’s Joe Duffy has branded the burning of his election posters on Tuesday night ‘despicable’ and an attack on the democratic process.
The party’s candidate for Lisburn and Castlereagh said:
“I was contacted by a local resident tonight letting me know that my election posters had been set alight in the Cutts area.
“This is a blatant attack on the democratic process and those behind this despicable act will fail.
“I will continue to work on behalf of everyone in North Lisburn and promote our message of equality, rights and Irish unity.
“Sinn Féin will not be silenced by these attacks which will only increase our determination to bring our progressive politics to voters in this council area.”
