Northern Ireland- Catholic deaths to be protested as British army returns home

(Social Justice South Africa; c.f. BBC World News (Secular) 02/11/08)

Article by Marc Aupiais

Protesters will protest along the route of a British home-coming army parade. They are from a major Irish Political party, claiming that British actions in Iraq, Afghanistan, and in Northern Ireland are not what they would call heroic. Two groups have decided to protest elsewhere than the actual route, and the British have canceled a flyby in the city, and disarmed troops partaking in the parade, as tension flair. Sinn Fein ("We Ourselves"), and others plan to protest on the route of the parade. Sinn Fein is planning a non-violent protest, and has asked hardliners to stay away. Both sides have compromised, but fears remain of violence.
