Maskey - RIR Stall - Offensive

26 February, 2004

South Belfast Sinn Féin Assembly Alex Maskey member has described an RIR recruitment stall in Bradbury Place as 'an outrageous insult'.

Mr Maskey said:

"My office has received numerous complaints this morning about the presence of an RIR recruitment stall outside the Equality Commission premises in Bradbury Place. Two heavily armed military personnel are on duty at the kerbside stall.

"The RIR are an armed unionist militia. They should not be on our streets never mind standing armed to the teeth attempting to recruit people into their ranks. Their presence outside the offices of the Equality Commission is particularly galling.

"This stall is insulting and offensive to the nationalist community which has been the victim of this force for many years. This stall should be removed immediately from this main thoroughfare." ENDS
