Action in Support of a Bigotry-Free Newry
Consequently, local nationalists took it upon themselves to remove the provocative sectarian emblems on Sunday afternoon.
éirígí general secretary Breandán MacCionnaith said: “Unionism has traditionally used flags and emblems in an attempt to mark out territory and construct sectarian divides.
“This type of sectarian intimidation is completely unacceptable and should be opposed by all citizens.
“Those activists who removed the offending items should be commended for their efforts to create a bigotry-free environment in the Newry area.”
