Armitage disgusted by yet more racist graffiti

Alliance Councillor David Armitage has said he’s disgusted and angry after yet another discovery of racist graffiti in East Belfast.

The latest discovery was made in the Brandon Terrace area, with those behind it determined to make what they described as ‘outsiders’ feel unwelcome.

Councillor David Armitage said: “I don’t know how many times I can say this, but East Belfast is a welcoming, inclusive society and the thugs behind this on-going spate of racist graffiti attacks will never detract from that.

“Alliance will be working with Belfast City Council and the PSNI to make sure absolutely everything possible is being done to stop the vandals responsible and to bring them to justice for the hurt and upset they are continuing to cause.

“Just today, I was at Inverary Community Centre, which recently also suffered racist graffiti, for an event attended by locals and residents from other parts of Belfast. To hear what great work this group does and how well supported it is by all within East Belfast shows the large majority of people do not subscribe to the stupidity of this graffiti.

“We must stand together, never allowing them the chance to strike fear into our community and showing that no-matter what they say, the majority of our community celebrates our open and inclusive nature. I would urge anyone with information to contact the PSNI as soon as possible.”
