‘People of Newry are repulsed’ – Bradley on Newry bomb

SDLP Newry and Armagh MLA Dominic Bradley has raised the issue of the van-bomb left in Newry at the weekend on the floor of the Assembly this afternoon.

Using the mechanism which allows a short cross-party debate on matters of the day, Mr Bradley condemned dissident activity and called on all those dissatisfied with political progress to pursue a peaceful and democratic course.

He said, “After enduring 30 plus years of violence the general public including the people of Newry and Armagh are repulsed by the thought of violence being used here again. Violence has been rejected by the people in both jurisdictions, and those who seek to further their aims in this way should listen to the people and desist from what they are doing. Dissent must be channelled through exclusively democratic and peaceful means. Planting bombs or murdering police officers or causing destruction to property are not acts of dissent. They are acts of destruction.”
