Green Party rep says postponement of Equal Marriage Bill is justice delayed

Mal O’Hara condemns sectarian graffiti at integrated school

Wednesday May 2 2018

Green Party rep Mal O’Hara has condemned sectarian graffiti that has been daubed on the wall of Hazelwood Integrated Nursery and Primary School.

The North Belfast rep said: “This graffiti is clearly designed to send out a chilling message to parents and children arriving at school.

“It is clearly the work of anti-social idiots who should have better things to do with their time than going out to frighten children, but unfortunately that doesn’t stop it from having an intimidating impact.

“This behaviour is not reflective of Hazelwood School and the community surrounding it. I am concerned that anti-social behaviour could escalate in North Belfast in the months ahead and I will be working as hard as I can to engage with communities, organisations and police to tackle sectarianism in the wider area.
