Anderson condemns burning of poppy wreaths

16 August, 2020 - by Martina Anderson MEP

Sinn Féin MLA Martina Anderson has condemned those responsible for placing poppy wreathes on a bonfire in Currynieirin. 

The Foyle MLA said: 

“The appearance of poppy wreathes on a bonfire in Currynieirin was wrong and must be condemned. 

“Everyone has a right to remember their dead in a respectful and dignified manner and the theft and desecration of these wreathes goes totally against that.”
