People urged to attend rally in Bogside area of Derry tonight in protest against recent attacks against the Fountain estate
9 Jul 2018
Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Karen Mullan is urging people to attend a community-led rally tonight to show their opposition to a recent spate of attacks in the Fountain and Bogside areas. “The recent spate of attacks which have seen petrol bombs thrown into the Fountain Estate and right outside the gates of Alexander House are a disgrace and need to stop,” she said. “Those responsible are more than likely the same people who terrorise residents of the Meenan Park area on a nightly basis. “Wrecking and terrorising your own community or a neighbouring community is wrong and is not reflective of the proud community that is the Bogside. “Therefore, I commend the local community for organising tonight’s rally to show their opposition to the anti-social elements behind these disturbances. “The rally takes place at 8pm in Meenan Square and I would urge elected representatives, community organisations and residents to come out and send a strong and loud message that this activity is not carried out in our name."
