"I have had families on who were out shopping yesterday and came across this disgraceful spectacle," said Councillor Middleton. "People have told me there were men marching with their faces covered with scarves or balaclavas, wearing military uniforms. One band had a image of two republican gunmen painted on their drum It is offensive and disgusting. We can not have the likes of that in what is essentially our city's shared space.

A spokesman for the Spirit of Freedom Republican Flute Band said that the march was approved by the Parades Commission and the PSNI. He said that none of the members wore masks or balaclavas and that the band hoped to replicate the march route through the city centre for their 25th anniversary next year.

"The march was dignified and well run," he told Newswire. "It was well stewarted and organised. No one was wearing masks. The Irish Republican Band Association have strict guidelines that do not permit the wearing of masks.


Row erupts after claims 'masked republicans marched in city centre' on Sunday afternoon | NewswireNI

an Irish Republican without a mask? i ask you, what is the world coming too? anyway good to see the band culture making use of the £4m Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin SPIRIT OF FREEDOM RFB – FUNDRAISER « Fiannaiochta

now obviously i wasn't there but that by no means curtails my right to be offended....

here's a wee clip

from a previous event showing the drum head which clearly breaches the PC guidelines • No dress, flags or emblems of a paramilitary style, or relating to a proscribed organisation are permitted. i hope that by exposing this youtube evidence that dawn raids by the preoffended culture police will follow...

An Orange man peaching to others about breaching PC guidelines is like being told to sit up straight by Quasimoto.

These lads should find another hobby.

What seems to be the problem here, troll under the bridge? Sour grapes per-haps?

Seems you have deliberately emboldened one bit of the sentence, but very conveniently didn't embolden the most important bit:


"The march was dignified and well run," he told Newswire. "It was well stewarted and organised. No one was wearing masks. The Irish Republican Band Association have strict guidelines that do not permit the wearing of masks.

windbag winker Irvine and his loyalist, sorry loyal unionist, cronies were sh1tstirring about this last nite and contacted the media, no doubt this was found on PULSE, eh troll :rolleyes:

Now which PC restriction were broke? Did it go through a unionist area provoking, intimidating and p1ssing and being drunk and sectarian thugs, like Orange/loyalists bands?

There was no-one wearing masks, this is the usual sh1tstirring and sour grapes exercise by bitter unionists, looking to play the PC as biased, when it is anything but.

Ah so 'no' is the answer to the questions I posed, which PC restrictions were broken and was it a triumphialist bigoted supremacist and sectarian hate-fest being coat-trailed through a unionist community....

cheers.

Nothing to see here. Zoo thread mopefest just.

I don't know what it is with these bitter loyalists and religious fundamental extremists, but they see their bands and hate-fests behaving horribly, despicably, totally provocatively and un-christian, so they then seek to see what 'themmuns' are doing, and it is in complete contrast - no breaches of determinations or restrictions, no drunkenness, no loutish behaviour or fascist-like bile and sectarian songs and it is not being coat-trailed through their areas.... so why do they see the need to point this out as it shows them in really bad light and exposes the difference between the two??

I've always believed that the real "flutes" in flute bands are the members, and I apply this as much to self proclaimed "republican" tosspots as I do to loyalists.
The DUP's Gary Middleton getting upset about images of republican gunmen on the drums though?
Would he complain about this celebration of a murdering terrorist on the shared space of the streets of Belfast as quickly? Somehow I doubt it.




He's just another blowhard DUP tosser without the brains to see that loyalists are infinitely worse when it comes to this sort of yobbishness.

I'm led to believe that that is dependant on the area where the bands march and the past behaviour of the bands.... hence why it is the badly behaved loyalists and orangies that are subjected to more restrictions. Anyways, there's plenty of loyalist bands that have the names of loyalist terrorists adorning their regalia....

In any case, these are irish republicans, why the feck should they adhere to any british restriction?? It's you Uncle Tom's that fawn and fetish over your masters and her majesty's subjects and her majesty's laws... hmmmm....

loyal to who?
