South Down: 70 Sinn Fein election campaign posters torn down and destroyed
Sinn Fein's Chris Hazzard has slammed the destruction of 70 of his election campaign posters.
The south Down candidate said he will not be deterred after his posters were dumped at Kilkeel Harbour.
Mr Hazzard said: “We discovered this morning that 70 of our election posters have been torn down and destroyed before being dumped at Kilkeel harbour.
“Clearly some people are afraid of change and the positive momentum around Sinn Féin’s campaign in South Down. There were also large posters destroyed showing Sinn Féin’s support for the campaign to save services at Daisy Hill Hospital.
“Despite this anti-democratic vandalism the Sinn Féin team in South Down will not be deterred and we will continue to offer the people of the constituency a fresh, positive, equality based alternative."
