Attwood condemns sectarian graffiti

SDLP West Belfast Councillor Tim Attwood has condemned sectarian graffiti which appeared on Caterpillar’s industrial plant in the city.

He said:

“The graffiti on Caterpillar’s west Belfast site is a disgrace.

“There is no impediment to anyone in this city working in west Belfast, regardless of their religion, ethnicity or their background. Workers in this part of Belfast have enough to contend with without turning on each other along sectarian lines.

“We continue to be starved of critical investment and regularly appear at the lower end of INVEST NI grant tables. The proportion of working families relying on foodbanks to provide for their children continues to increase. If the cowards who daubed this graffiti think that attacking our friends and neighbours will solve any of that, they’re sadly mistaken.

“West Belfast is open for business and open for work for everyone.

“I would appeal to anyone with information to bring it to the PSNI.”
