O'Dowd calls for removal of para banners in Banbridge

11 May, 2019 - by John O'Dowd

Sinn Féin MLA John O’Dowd has called on authorities to remove two banners from Banbridge town centre which are designed to cause hurt to the victims of Bloody Sunday and cause community division.

John O’Dowd said:

“These banners, proclaiming support for a murder suspect of innocent civilians on the streets of Derry, is not appropriate.“The victims of Bloody Sunday deserve the truth just as much as any victim of the conflict.“The rate at which these banners are appearing is a reflection of the failure of authorities to act.“The silence of the PSNI, Road Service and political unionism is deafening.

“These banners should be removed immediately.”
