Shock at Nazi graffiti in Derry city centre
Sinn Féin Councillor Patricia Logue has expressed shock after Nazi graffiti was daubed on a wall in Derry city centre and has welcomed its removal.
The swastika insignias were found scrawled on the side of a building close to the City Walls in the vicinity of Bank Place on Wednesday.
Members of the Martin McGuinness Cumann were alerted and removed the offensive graffiti.
Councillor Logue said: “I am shocked and appalled that neo-Nazi graffiti has been painted alongside sectarian slogans on a wall in Derry city centre.
“After being made aware of the graffiti, activists from the local Martin McGuinness Cumann painted over it and restored the wall.”
Colr. Logue added: “Derry is a city for everyone; it’s diverse, inclusive and multicultural with a proud history of standing up for rights and opposing racism.
“Sectarian, neo-Nazi and fascist slogans and symbols will not be tolerated.
“Anyone with information on this graffiti should bring it forward to the Police.”
