Racist attacks increasing despite quiet march season

Racist attacks have risen by 35 per cent in a year, averaging five attacks every day.

Despite successful efforts to minimise tensions around flashpoint Klu Klux Klan parades, this summer has nevertheless seen a marked rise in racist attacks when compared with last year. Latest police figures show that since April there have been an average of 38 racist attacks across the north every week. read full story / add a comment
Michael's mother Gina McIlveen outside her home in Ballymena (McKay IT 13 May 06)

Susan McKay’s article in the Weekend Review section of the Irish Times (May 13 2006 - see link below) explains the background to the unionist sectarian killing of Michael McIlveen in Ballymena. In this DUP heartland over 90% of the sectarian attacks are unionist.

The PSNI calls this sectarianism that is almost universally unionist a “two way thing”. Ian Paisley wants “all sides” to “pull back”. Instead of examining whether unionist ideology is in any way at fault, Paisley warns nationalists in an insulting and bullying manner not to turn the issue into a “political football”. read full story / add a comment

It is astonisihing that only Susan McKay has raised the question of the bona fides of FAIR in a substantive manner. It is not as though the information is hard to come by.

For instance:

FAIR demonstrated outside Stormont about the early release of Republican prisoners. When asked by David Dunseath of the BBC about the early release of loyalist prisoners Frazer replied “They should never have been locked up in the first place” read full story / add a comment
Daily Ireland story - that started the alternative ball rolling

Radical Jesuit priest Father Peter McVerry puts some of the incoherent anger seen on Saturday to role of police in inner city areas - in particular death ("murder" say Wheelock family) of Terence Wheelock in Garda custody. He says a combination of circumstances was fortuitous for the expression of this anger.

Stories reproduced here – Herald 'ripped off' the story because they did not name Daily Ireland as the source. They referred instead to Father McVerry speaking to a “a republican newspaper”.

Lively discussion on RTE’s Liveline – McVerry very able to handle the “they are all scumbags” detractors and various assorted blueshirts voicing their disappointment at this unlikely turn of events.

From The Independent 11 July 1997. Caption: “Triumphalism: Ormeau Road 1992, an Orangeman holds up five fingers as a parade passes a spot where five Catholics were shot dead by loyalist terrorists.”

Information on the sectarian motives and background of the Orange Order and of supporters of Willie Frazer's FAIR needs to be put into the public domain. The character of last Saturday's violent protest against the Orange march makes that task more difficult. However, the criticism must be pursued in the interests of real tolerance and pluralism. It shoud be done openly and peacefully, and therefore effectively.

[In relation the (London) Independent picture caption:
The five nationalists were massacred in Grahams bookies shop on the Ormeau Road – it is one reason why the community rose up and determined that the Orange Order would not march down the Ormeau Road again, without the Orange order first meeting the residents of that road. The Orange order have refused consistently to meet them, as they have also consistently refused to meet the spokespersons of the Garvaghy Road residents in Portadown.] read full story / add a comment
