Thousands March to Show No! Welcome 4 State mUrDeRers!

category antrim | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Sunday November 02, 2008 16:32author by Youth 4 Truth - Ógra Shinn Féinauthor email osfnational at yahoo dot ie Report this post to the editors

Thousands of people turned out to the Sinn Fein rally/march today (Sun 2 Nov) which opposed the 'home coming' parade by the notorious RIR regiment of the British Army.

There was a large Ógra Shinn Féin presence on the day, with young republicans travelling from across Ireland.

The rally/march was calling for an end to the ongoing illegal occupations in Ireland, Iraq, and Afghanistan and also to demand the truth for the hundreds of families who have been bereaved through the official British state policy of collusion and state murder. The UDR/RIR themselves where part and parcel of the murder machine.

At the Rally in Dunville, Sean 'Spike' Murray, Gerry Kelly MLA and National Co-ordinator for Relatives For Justice Mark Thompson addressed the assembled crowd.

As the marchers, led by relatives, made their way to Fisherwick place to protest peacefully and dignified at the passing RIR/UDR coat trailing exercise, loyalists who had accessed scaffolding adjacent to the protest, lobbed bottles, bits of scaffold and fireworks to provoke, and injure.

The Sinn Féin protest remained vigilant and dignified and relatives held the portraits of their loved ones, the victims of Collusion/State murder, high as the RIR/UDR 'victory parade' passed by.

The rally/march allowed the families, who had been ignored in this highly insensitive parade, get their message across, and it also allowed the people of Belfast and wider afield to demonstrate their ongoing opposition to the illegal occupation of Ireland, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Looks like you were doing the cops job for them there with that amount of marshalling.
Some presence may be necessary but it devalues the freedom of protesting and creates firm hierarchys in the leader and the led.

author by DMpublication date Mon Nov 03, 2008 09:56Report this post to the editors

While I have issues with Sinn Fein the marshalling was certiainly needed, the protest could have turned violent easily, I can at least say well done for organising this demonstration well and making sure it stayed peaceful

author by Eoin Mcpublication date Mon Nov 03, 2008 12:49Report this post to the editors

There was an anarchist march to oppose the RIR parade as well, so if you wanted to attend a march with no marshalls you could have gone to that.

To Anti War - Anti Borders,

Not sure if your a rep for anti war movement, but where the f**k where the anti war movement in Belfast on Sunday?

Was the single biggest public act by the British War Machine in Belfast in a very long time, not reason enough to come out and make your feelings none on anti imperialism?

An absolute disgrace, the silence is deafening and everyone can see it, you's have tarnished yourselves once again.

Fair play to Ogra Sf and the rest of them, consistent message, Iraq, Ireland, Afghanistan, end the occupations!

Interesting to see the picture of the RUC/PSNI cameraman filming the Sinn Féin protestors. If we have any information on the protestors should we forward it on to the PSNI?

The Australian federal government have stated that the Aussie troops are welcome in the six counties while they train how to harass civilians before leaving to do some killing in Afghanistan.

Feel free to make some noise about this aiding and abetting of the continued Australian supported British military occupation of Ireland.

Was in Belfast on Sunday gone and have read all reports and viewed all media filming of Sinn Fein protest and am in no doubt that there was definately no more than 1000/1200 protesters at the max.For such an event taking place in Belfast this is a terrible turnout.One can only blame Sinn Fein leadership for mobilising at the 11th hour(was this a consequence of the fear that relatives groups and credible republicans alike were preparing to attend eirigi commeration in absence of SF protest up to last week)and for the confusion their support of the PSNI,Parades Commision and Stormont Assembly(all aspects of normalisation)has installed in republicans nationally.One must ask the question how does a republican party justify engagement in a powering sharing executive with the DUP,supporting and endorsing policing by the PSNI and applying to the Parades Commision for the right to protest with true republican values.Confused?,well i am.Maybe this is the reason for the poor turnout by Belfast standards.

i am also confused how does a party that chose to accept and administer british policing in ireland explain to itself this paradox, while protesting against one arm of occupation it refuses to accept the rationale that it is complicit in consolidating occupation by its decision on policing.
