URGENT PRESS RELEASE
GARC PROTESTERS 12-7-10
After a meeting today (Tuesday 24-8-10) of G.A.R.C. Activists, our Collective has agreed to radically oppose this Saturday morning's unwelcome sectarian Black Preceptory march through our community.
Local residents in the Greater Ardoyne area do not deserve to be hemmed into their homes by huge numbers of heavily-armed and riot-clad PSNI members. To permit sectarian societies and U.V.F. linked bands who insist on parading through their community. They have had enough of Parade Commissioners refusing to take into account their legitimate views.
We urge the Black Preceptory No 210 Redcross branch and the Pride of Ardoyne Flute Band to reroute its march in the interests of everyone and leave local people in peace. If not, the Greater Ardoyne Residents Collective declare that we will make a determined, peaceful but radical effort to block the Crumlin Road and prevent this parade through our community.
