Lo describes those who burnt polish flags on bonfires as bigots

Alliance South Belfast MLA Anna Lo has described those who burnt Polish flags on bonfires on 11th July as bigots. A number of Polish flags were burnt on bonfires across Belfast.

Anna Lo MLA said: “It is completely unacceptable for people to burn any flag. The people who burnt these Polish flags are nothing more than bigots. It is the actions of a hateful person who would do such a thing.

“I would urge community leaders to encourage the people involved in the building of these bonfires to ensure that nothing like a flag or an effigy is placed on them.

“Also, the Orange Order has a role to play in ensuring that incidents such as this are not repeated next year.

“This is clearly racist behaviour which is doing the image of Northern Ireland a lot of damage.”
