Racism has no place in any society

Lunn2017Alliance Justice spokesperson Trevor Lunn has said there is no place for racism in Northern Ireland, or any other society.

Mr Lunn was speaking after the Belfast Jewish Community received a message containing a racist image. Trevor Lunn said: “Members of the Jewish community first came to Northern Ireland around 150 years ago and have made a valuable contribution to our community over that time. Unfortunately, for a range of reasons in recent years there has been a fall in number amongst the Jewish community. That is why this incident involving a racist message must be condemned by all.

“We need to send a clear signal that these racist messages are not acceptable and should not be sent. We also need to send a message of support to the Jewish community that we support and stand with them.”
