Newry plans more protests

Three thousand people took to the streets of Newry on Sunday in solidarity with the nationalists of the Garvaghy Road. People marched behind banners saying `Dismantle the Orange State' and `Disband the RUC' to a rally outside the Ardmore RUC barracks on the Belfast Road.

They were addressed by Sinn Féin Councillor Pat McNamee and Gary Jones, spokesperson for Newry Residents Coalition Against Sectarian Marches.

A further march and rally is planned for Newry on Friday night (assembling at 7.00pm at Soho Car Park) and on Saturday morning there will be protests at three Orange marches which are planned to pass through the 95% nationalist town.
