Dickson responds to Catalan violence

Alliance MLA Stewart Dickson has said violence is never an answer, as hundreds of people were injured in clashes in the Catalan region.

Stewart Dickson MLA said: “I am extremely concerned about the reaction of the Spanish Authorities, not just today, but in the run up to what has become a highly volatile situation.

“In Northern Ireland we are far too aware of how violent behaviour can quickly escalate and the dire repercussions from this for the entire community.

“Rather than continuing down this path, any tension should be resolved through dialogue and the courts – and sooner, rather than later before any more people are injured.”
