Long condemns attacks on homes of Adams and Storey

The Alliance Party Leader, Naomi Long MLA, has condemned attacks on the homes of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey in West Belfast.

Naomi Long said: “This week we have seen those who remain wedded to violence bring chaos and fear onto our streets, in scenes which we had all hoped we would never witness again.

“These latest attacks on the homes of Gerry Adams and Bobby Storey are a deliberate and calculated attempt to cause fear and raise tensions within our community. They must be condemned without equivocation by us all.

“We have all worked too hard and come too far to see the peace we have enjoyed put at risk by those who offer nothing to this society but destruction. Their recklessness and disregard for the community is clear in these attacks, undertaken in residential streets without any regard for the consequences.

“As a community, we need to stand together in opposition to those behind this violence: there is not now and never has been any excuse for terrorism.

“I would appeal to anyone with information to contact the Police. Our community is not safe while these people remain on our streets.”
