Dialogue the only way to resolve issue of contentious parades – Ní Chuilín

27 August, 2010 - by Carál Ní Chuilín

Sinn Féin north Belfast MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has slammed the decision by the High Court in Belfast to rejected a judicial review taken by CARA Residents Group into the Parades Commission’s move to allow a contraversial Loyalist Band, with close associations to the UVF to pass Ardoyne, Mountainview and Dales tomorrow morning.

Ms Ní Chuilín said;

“The key to resolving the outstandning issues around contentious parades is for parade organisers to engage in direct, respectful and meaningful dialogue with the people who live in the areas they wish to march through.

The decision by the Parades Commission to allow a band with close links to the UVF to pass through this area highlights a startling degree of insentitivity to the people who live there.

I have no doubt that the residents in the effected areas will make their opposition to this move known through peaceful and dignified protest tomorrow morning.” CRÍOCH
