Another loyalist flag protocol cold comfort for Ballynafeigh residents
Commenting on news of yet another loyalist flags protocol in Belfast Sinn Féin ML:A Máirtín Ó Muilleoir said:
“News of another loyalist protocol for flag displays in Ballynafeigh will bring no comfort to those who wish to see an end to the use of flags to harass and intimidate the majority nationalist community in the district.
“Any proposals for flag protocols should be made through the Commission for Flags, Identity, Culture and Tradition so that all sections of society can have their say.
“The vast majority of the people of Ballynafeigh, regardless of their identity or background, do not want to see their neighbourhood bedecked in union flags by faceless men for the entirety of the summer period.
“The demand for an area free of paramilitary intimidation and flag-waving should be respected.”
