category antrim | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Monday June 16, 2008 22:05author by Paula Geraghty Report this post to the editors

The Union Jack no where to be seen, replaced, bravely and daringly with an Iraqi flag over City Hall. Hundreds protested at the lunchtime protest. The protests continued at Stormont. More reports to follow.

Bush, a president on the way out, finished his last European tour today in Belfast. Hundreds commemorated the struggle for peace and justice in the world at City Hall, calling to mind the Civil Rights struggle in the 6 counties. Eamon McCann one of the raytheon 9 acquitted of criminal damage against the arms manufacturer raytheon spoke of how we are told we live in a global village and thus Iraqi, Iranian, Lebanese, Palestinian and all nationalities are now are neighbours. There was much celebration as the Iraqi flag was to be seen, raised over City Hall, replacing the Union Jack, a brave gesture and symbol of solidarity. An Iraqi man spoke of his gratitude for the solidarity shown by those present in Belfast.

Many Trade Unions were represented; Unison Unite and there was a spokesperson from NIPSA. Éirigí, the Workers Party, some Ógra Sinn Féin, Socialist Party, SWP and SDLP were all in attendance. It was made quite clear that those who desire peace should not invite the world's greatest terrorist to Belfast.
