Culture which tolerates violence

Chief Constable Hugh Orde is adamant that the PSNI will address the sectarian violence in North Antrim, with Operation Striker, in which hundreds of extra police are being deployed. But trouble is breaking out in Garnerville again, with another family forced out of the area. Father Des Wilson, focuses entirely on the former situation, and targets what he sees as the Unionist culture that tolerates a campaign he believes is calculated to reduce the ‘voting, economic and cultural power of the Catholics’.
