category derry | miscellaneous | press release author Friday July 01, 2011 10:58author by PRO - SIPTU Report this post to the editors

SIPTU have condemned the ‘sickening attack’ on a Derry community worker’s car.

Sean McMonagle a well-known community activist, and who is a member of SIPTU, had his car attacked at his Rinmore Drive home, in the Creggan area of Derry on Wednesday night.

Hundreds of people took to the streets last night in the Creggan estate in a protest against the attack and in solidarity with Sean.

Mr McMonagle speaking on the attack said,

"It is not just about me, it is about what I do, it's about what a large number of people in this area, right across Derry do. I think this is the community beginning to stand up and saying to any of these groups, or any individuals that are involved in this type of stuff, 'no, you're not going to isolate or intimidate people and you're not going to bother them'."

Condemning the attack SIPTU organiser Martin O’Rourke said,

“Community activists like Sean work day and night to improve the life’s of others around them, the huge numbers that turned out in support of him last night demonstrates the high regard in which he is held and the level of anger at this absolutely sickening attack. The solidarity shown by local people last night is a strong message to these anti community elements to stop immediately with their pointless and criminal attacks.”
