Lord Mayor condemns racist attack

BELFAST Lord Mayor, Councillor Tom Ekin, has condemned an attack on the Filipino community in Skegoneill, North Belfast.

Councillor Ekin said:

“This was another in a long line of attacks on the Filipino community, who have made an invaluable contribution to our society. It is shameful that hospital workers, who are so badly needed here, are being attacked because of the colour of their skin.

“Those behind this attack are a tiny minority who represent no-one. They certainly do not represent the vast majority of the people of the area who are outraged that this has happened, and who have already shown this family support.”
