Decky Posted July 13, 2009 Share Posted July 13, 2009 So the 12th celebrations have once again delivered violence in Northern Ireland... http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/northern_ireland/8148955.stm My question is, how on gods name are the Orange Order allowed to still march through catholic/nationalist/republican whatever you want to call them, areas? Now some of you might be horrified and jump on me with "they have a right to march where ever they want", but im sorry, that is absolute bollocks. It beggars belief that they are allowed to march through these areas when it guarantees trouble. A shot was fired today ffs, that could have killed someone and it could have been completely prevented. The Orange Order should stick to safe zones and Unionist areas where their marches will pass peacefully and where they will even be welcomed, instead of coming into Republican areas that will only end in violence , simple as that really. Now some might argue that people still shouldn't riot, and I would agree that they shouldn't but there is a lot of history here and there always will be trouble, there isn't anything you can do about that, not in the foreseeable future. I would love to hear some supporters of the Orange Order on here try and defend these acts that guarantee violence. If they stayed out of Republican areas then all this could have been avoided: Quote Ardoyne Shots fired at police 14 baton rounds fired Water cannon deployed Petrol bombs and other missiles thrown Two officers injured Van pushed at police lines Sinn Fein blame Real IRA for trouble Firearm handed to police after children spotted playing with it Londonderry Minor trouble at return city centre parade Missiles thrown Trouble in Butcher's Gate One police officer injured Armagh Device explodes on Friary Road Petrol bombs thrown Two cars stolen and set on fire Four people arrested Rasharkin Stones, petrol bombs thrown Three police hurt One arrested Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
