7/4/16 – 1000th day of Protest – Twaddell

On 7/4/16 the group attended Twaddell in support of the Orange Brethren in their quest to highlight the discrimination and injustice against our community and support the local Orange parading tradition in what was the 1000th day of protest.

In 2013, three Orange lodges were refused permission to return along a small stretch of the Crumlin Road past the Ardoyne shops for that year’s Twelfth celebrations.

In response to the determination, a protest camp was set up at Twaddell Avenue with lodge members vowing to retain a presence until they were granted permission to complete their parade.

The camp is manned 24 hours a day and includes various parades in the area.

Fairness and equality is all that is asked.
