Gormley condemns those responsible for South Belfast devices

John Gormley, Sinn Féin Councillor for Botanic, has condemned those responsible for suspect devices in the Lower Ormeau Road area of South Belfast.

Cllr Gormley said: 

“Two suspect devices have been left at houses in the Lower Ormeau Road. 

“The area is currently sealed off while the PSNI continue to deal with the situation. 

“I have been liaising with local residents and community groups to provide maximum support to those residents who have been evacuated from their homes. 

“This was a senseless act and shows little regard for the community, our key workers, emergency services and health workers.  It comes at a time when people are already dealing with very stressful situations.

“Those responsible for these suspect devices have absolutely nothing to offer our society. They must get off the back of the community of South Belfast and allow local residents to live in peace.

“I appeal for anyone with any information to bring it forward to the PSNI.”

This Government is like the last guest at a party who has worn out their welcome but still won't go.

Be very clear: The day is coming when they will have to face the verdict of the people.

So when a General Election is called, vote for hope, vote for change and vote this failed…

This was the time to call a general election, but the government didn’t have the guts to call one.

We need change like never before. We need a new government that will put workers, families, and community first.

It’s time for new people with new ideas.  It’s time for change.

‘Recognition of a Palestinian state will happen’. Welcome words from @MichealMartinTD but falls short of a firm declaration.
There may be no Palestine left to recognise unless Ireland & international community act decisively and immediately. No more delays.
