Sinn Fein condemns burning of election poster
Photographs have emerged of a poster belonging to Sinn Fein election candidate in Lisburn North.
A Sinn Fein election candidate has spoken out after one of his posters was burned.
Lisburn North candidate Joe Duffy said he was contacted by a local resident to tell him that one of his election posters had been set alight.
“This is a blatant attack on the democratic process and those behind this despicable act will fail,” he said.
Dispicable acts by idiots will not deter myself or Sinn Féin. If elected I will represent all of the people of North Lisburn....you have nothing to fear when it comes to equality, respect and a rights based agenda.... pic.twitter.com/OXEGgLF9vx— Joe Duffy (@JoeDuff38) April 16, 2019
“I will continue to work on behalf of everyone in North Lisburn and promote our message of equality, rights and Irish unity.
“Sinn Fein will not be silenced by these attacks which will only increase our determination to bring our progressive politics to voters in this council area.”
