Removal of Sinn Féin posters will not deter South Antrim election campaign - Kearney
Sinn Féin’s Declan Kearney has said the removal of election posters will not deter his election campaign in South Antrim.
The South Antrim candidate said:
"Over the last number of days Sinn Féin election posters have been cut down and removed in Mallusk and Hightown.
"This is an attempt to subvert the democratic process but it will not succeed nor will it deter Sinn Féin in this election campaign.
"Sinn Féin in South Antrim is running a positive political campaign and engaging extensively with voters on the doorsteps.
"The response to my campaign has been positive as people recognise the need to stand up against Brexit and the negative politics of both the DUP and Tory government. Every vote for Sinn Féin in this election is a vote against Brexit and sectarianism, and a positive vote for progressive politics and Irish solutions to Westminster’s Brexit agenda.
"I have reported the theft of these posters to the PSNI and a criminal inquiry will commence."
