RNU Denounce Recent Attack As Totally Unprovoked

category national | rights, freedoms and repression | press release author Monday June 28, 2010 14:23author by RNU-PRO - Republican Network for Unity (RNU) Report this post to the editors

‘On Tuesday 22 June, 2010 a number of RNU members were distributing leaflets concerning a number of issues relevant to the local community. Not long after finishing the canvass, a thirty- strong gang of anti-social thugs, armed with crowbars and knives, verbally and physically assaulted some of our Activists, in full view of the public.

REPUBLICAN NETWORK for UNITY (RNU) Spokesperson, Martin Óg Meehan, has slammed a vicious attack on RNU Activists in the Market’s area of South Belfast as totally unprovoked.

‘On Tuesday 22 June, 2010 a number of RNU members were distributing leaflets concerning a number of issues relevant to the local community. Not long after finishing the canvass, a thirty- strong gang of anti-social thugs, armed with crowbars and knives, verbally and physically assaulted some of our Activists, in full view of the public.

RNU regularly distribute leaflets in many areas of Belfast and have never encountered such indecent and cowardly behaviour. To have an armed gang attack Activists, both male and female, on a leaflet drop shows the calibre and mentality of the attackers.

The attack demonstrates how criminal elements in the area do not want Republicans to express our politics or indeed to offer our support to the community. No community will not nor should they tolerate this kind of criminal behaviour and neither will RNU.
Despite the unjustified attack, the Republican Network for Unity is determined to confront political, social and economic problems facing working-class areas and pursue our core objectives.

RNU assures the Market community that they will not be abandoned by RNU and we will continue to offer our support.'

"The attack demonstrates how criminal elements in the area do not want Republicans to express our politics ...."

CRIMINAL ELEMENTS ???????? You mean over where you are CRIMINALS get all hot and bothered over politics? How strange. Over here the folks we call "criminal elements" are usually looking out for the main chance, stick to things of direct benefit to themselves, only get involved in "politics" if one faction competing for power threatens to invest more effort in "anti-criminal" efforts than another party, etc.

PLEASE -- do NOT misinterpret this criticism. I am NOT saying that for the partisans of one political faction to physically attack the partisans of another political faction isn't a criminal action (an action contrary to law, etc.). But that does NOT make them "criminal elements" . All I am saying is cut the self delusion. You weren't being attacked by "crimianl elements" but political opponents of the sort willing to play very rough. Important that you recognize the difference.
