Sinn Féin to meet Parades Commission about British army parade and Sinn Féin protest

21 October, 2008

Sinn Féin West Belfast MLA Paul Maskey will lead a delegation to meet with the Parades Commission tomorrow, Wednesday 22nd October.

Sinn Féin have lodged an application for a peaceful and dignified protest march and rally for November 2nd.

Commenting on the meeting Mr Maskey said:

"The British army track record in Iraq and Afghanistan, much like here in Ireland, is not one of heroism; it is one of murder and oppression.

"Sinn Féin plan to hold a peaceful and dignified rally during this event in order to highlight the continued opposition to these illegal wars by people from right across the city of Belfast from many different backgrounds.

"It is also to highlight the many victims of the British Army, UDR and RIR here at home; victims of collusion, intimidation, shoot to kill, torture and state murder. That is the legacy of the British Army and RIR here in Ireland." ENDS
