SF hits out at Maghera march decision

30/07/2004 - 14:28:10

Sinn Féin has accused the Parades Commission of caving in to loyalist threats by allowing a contentious march to proceed through the village of Maghera in Co Derry this evening.

The village, mainly nationalist, will be cut off to traffic for around two hours because of the parade.

Sinn Féin MP Martin McGuinness said the commission’s decision to allow the march was disgraceful and he accused the parades body of putting a loyalist “coat-trailing” exercise ahead of the rights of nationalist residents.

He also said loyalists had recently been targeting nationalists in the area.
