They’re off

The Whiterock parade is underway against the backdrop of disturbances at the Short Strand where a man was critically injured last night in a sectarian attack. LoveUlster has had a poster discussing a coordinated plan to ‘stretch’ the PSNI and others discuss the arrival of concerned Loyalists from outside the area (Shankill).

UPDATE: Violence spreads.

A comment from Love Ulster:

Okay one reason why every one doesnt know what time it starts at, is to help with the policing and the protests, when trouble starts around the city today the police will be stretched and will have to go investigate, when prods arrive on the shankill they will find out their info from word-of-mouth because not much can be trusted in these sites, so all in all, cannot wait, lol have a great day,
