ÓGRA SHINN FÉIN announces that their Special Six-County conference is to

be postponed until further notice. The Orange Order last week announced that they intend to intensify their campaign to force their way down the Garvaghy Rd this Summer. They have already applied to march through the isolated nationalist area of Portadown on both the 2 and 9 July. Following this the organisers of the ÓSF conference have decided to keep these two dates free in case the Garvaghy Road Residents Association request support from the wider nationalist community on these days. A meeting of ÓSF activists in the Six Counties will take place in Belfast on Saturday 1 July and all those interested in the republican youth wing are invited and urged to attend. More details shortly
