Dickson: Burning of Union flags on Londonderry bonfire is disgraceful

Alliance Justice spokesperson, Stewart Dickson MLA, has condemned those who placed Union flags and other flags on a bonfire in Londonderry on Friday night.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “It is completely disrespectful to burn the Union flag or any other country’s flag on a bonfire. This is a hate filled crime which seeks to promote division.

“We must move away from this type of disgraceful action as we seek to build a society where all groups demonstrate respect for other people.

“This is not about being anti-bonfire, but about ensuring that they are built free of flags and other inappropriate materials.”
