Scenes of disorder not reflective of ongoing positive work to transform Derry – Ferguson

Sinn Féin MLA Ciara Ferguson has said scenes of disorder and disruption are in stark contrast to the positive work being done to continue to transform Derry. 

The Foyle MLA said: 

“Scenes of petrol bomb attacks on journalists and burning of vehicles outside a thriving community centre are outrageous and totally unacceptable. 

“Journalists should be able to do their job free from threats and intimidation, and likewise the community should not have to put up with this destruction outside their homes. 

“This reckless activity is not representative of this city and is in stark contrast to the hugely positive work that is being done to continue with the positive transformation of the city.

“Derry is a wonderful place with huge potential. We must work together to create opportunities and to build a better future for all.”
