Ógra Sinn Féin member is injured while engaged in anti-sectarian protes

Injured young man recovering- anti-sectarian community applauds

A young member of Ógra Sinn Féin last Saturday night noticed that a building was flying a Union Flag in Newcastle, County Down Ireland.

This "butcher's apron" flag is of course offensive to many Irish people, and since the building belonged to the avowedly sectarian "Orange Order" the young man decided that the best way to peacefully protest was to scale the building and remove the offending symbol.

Sadly, after removing the flag, the young ÓSF member lost his footing and fell from the roof, injuring his arm. He has received medical treatment and is recovering.

Since the "Orange Order" is a sectarian organisation, and the protest was entirely peaceful, many people have applauded the young man's actions and wish him a speedy recovery.
