The Ballymaconnelly Sons of Conquerors parade has been subjected to heinous restrictions by the discredited Parades Commission for many years.
At last nights parade peaceful bandsmen were subjected to the most vile sectarian abuse by nationalist protest groups, which are contrived in order to agitate against all expressions of Unionist culture.
Sinn Fein Belfast City Councillor Deirdre Hargey- who continues to withhold information about the brutal IRA murder of Robert McCartney- attended the parade in Rasharkin to support the residents groups dishing out sectarian abuse.
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.
