The right to march is worth defending and fighting for!

Who says so?The James Connolly Society and Cairde na hEireann. This republican video documents the banning of the James Connolly Commemoration March in Edinburgh in 1993. The second half of the video shows how organisers rejected the official rulling and “Led by the James Connolly Society a few hundred republicans from Scotland England and Ireland attempted to march on 5th June 1993. Police using heavy-handed tactics tried to deny them their democratic ri[ght]” (4 min 36 secs in). The ban was subsequently lifted. However republicans still remember this ban and talk of how (Page 23):

“Over the years republicans have had to fight for our right to march through the city of Connolly’s birth.” and “Republicans in Scotland fought a successful campaign defending our right to march on our streets and commemorate James Connolly.”
