Sinn Féin Poblachtach Stands In Solidarity With Residents Of Short Strand

Republican Sinn Féin, expresses support for the residents of the Short Strand

Sinn Féin Poblachtach stands in solidarity with the residents of the Short Strand in Belfast who have been under siege from a loyalist mob over the past few days. Attacks with bottles, nuts, bolts, golf balls, bricks, paintballs etc have been a nightly occurrence.

In a statement on June 1, 2015, a spokesperson said:

All these attacks have been launched from the Thistle Court area and they are being ignored by the RUC/PSNI. Once again the Crown police forces have shown their true colours. So much for the ‘reformed police’ we have heard so much of.

These sectarian attacks have been happening all too often and show that for many in the Occupied Six Counties life has changed little over these past few years, there has been no ‘peace benefit’.

Sinn Féin Poblachtach condemns these attacks and calls on all communities to band together in face of these bigoted attacks.

  1. Good for them. I just wanted to post here Mackers to tp my wee hat
    when I said THANKS I absolutely meant it xo

    Anthony, (Dr Mackers)

    In all sobriety, thank you Mackers for giving me my political sanity at a time when I was a decade plus 'lost'. I honestly owe you much for that. Also for your assistance with your extensive archive in attaining a BA and MA not just myself but many of my fellow students, extended academic company and beyond, also my own personal progression to PHD (a bridge too far for me, I only intended TEFL English a degree and a ticket the flock outa here with Bo Peep... now we have a rose garden and a baby due God willing, I'm booked and burnt out). Apologies for taking too many liberties even when you knew I was pushing the boat out. Enjoyed every minute of it and loved it, AND YOU. Sorry Mackers, I am in the wrong.

    Chin up big man, what ever life throws at you AGAIN I'm certain you will be fine. I'm cancer the crab...did ye notice? lol and I have a feeling no1 will hurt you Anthony at this stage. Integrity is in short supply and I thing you hogged 80/90% of it. God bless,

    Horrid Wee Larry xox
