South Down 32 County Sovereignty Movement
Anti-social behaviour must end now.
The South Down 32 County Sovereignty Movement call for an immediate end to the growing tide of Anti-social behaviour and intimidation by a small group of youths in The Mayobridge area recently.
Several residents of the Craignamona, Lisbane park and St Annes Park estates have been in contact with the sovereignty movement with complaints ranging from persistent damage to property, intimidation and low level drug dealing. Others dealt with drinking, drug taking and indecency on a public pathway.
It is significant that the majority of complaints have been recorded following a meeting of the Newry and Mourne DPP in the Village last Monday (13th September). When asked why these residents had approached the republican movement many stated that they believed that at least two of those engaged in acts of intimidation and drug dealing were in fact passing information to the PSNI/RUC.
In calling for an end to this behaviour the 32 CSM appeal directly to these young men, youths and to their parents to ensure that such actions cease before someone is hurt or is forced to leave the area as a result of community action, it is our belief that dialogue is the most suitable way to resolve such issues and we pledge the support of the republican movement in facilitating dialogue if needed. We also pledge to stand with the community if the appeals of the community are ignored by a small number of young people within it. Anyone with concerns can contact the South Down 32 CSM.
