Yesterday evening sectarian stone-throwing broke out in the Suffolk area in advance of a Republican Easter march in the area.
In an interface area this is not an unusual occurrence for while the “high intensity” conflict has near disappeared, there has not been the same decline in low level attacks on both communities. These continue to restrict, blight and hurt the lives of many as well as cost us all through the costs of having to pay for duplication.
Government’s Shared Future is heavy on aspiration but the delays in developing the Action Plan show how difficult it is to transform the vision into practical policies. How can these attacks be reduced or stopped? How can the safety and respect people need to share facilities be achieved?
