Second Donegal registered car attacked

16 August, 2007

Sinn Féin Derry City Waterside Councillor Lynn Fleming has expressed concern following an attack on a Donegal Registered car in the Newbuildings area. This is the second Donegal registered car to be attacked in County Derry in recent weeks.

Councillor Fleming said:

"This is just unacceptable .At a time when we are attempting to reconcile people of all denominations in north there is a minority who are determined to raise sectarian tensions.

"Words of condemnation are obviously not enough, radical action by elected representatives and the community is needed to change sectarian attitudes that clearly exist.

"Parents also have an obvious role to play through their attitude to sectarianism as many of the preconceived attitudes to differences are generational. Parents and other adults must lead by example to eradicate this unacceptable behaviour." ENDS
