Ferguson expresses concern over anti-vaccine picket at school gates

Sinn Féin MLA Ciara Ferguson has expressed concern that pupils attending St. Columb’s College were approached by anti-vaccine protestors at the school gates. 

The Foyle MLA said: 

“Parents have contacted me raising concerns that children attending St. Columb’s College were approached by anti-vaccine protestors. 

“Children should be able to attend school free from harassment and to make their own informed choices along with their parents. 

“I will be in touch with the school to offer my support and with the PSNI in an effort to ensure this doesn’t happen again. 

“Those gathering outside our schools on these protests should desist immediately.” CRÍOCH/ENDS
