Unionist Voice has obtained footage of unionist bandsmen being aggressively pursued by the PSNI in Coleraine as they returned from Saturday’s ABOD parade.
This aggressive policing operation was filmed by a member of the public accompanying the band. It raises serious questions as to the motivation behind such aggressive and provocative policing. No such evidence gathering was in place as drunken youths promoted the Provisional IRA at a ‘concert’ hosted by the West Belfast Feile on Sunday evening.
Since you’re here…
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading the Unionist Voice than ever but unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can.
The Unionist Voice is editorially independent, meaning we set our own agenda. Our journalism is free from commercial bias. No one edits our Editor. No one steers our opinion. This is important because it enables us to give a voice to the voiceless, challenge the powerful and hold them to account. It’s what makes us different to so many others in the media, at a time when factual, honest reporting is critical.
f everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as £1, you can support the Unionist Voice– and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
