Changes to parade and protest

The Army has announced a number of changes to the Belfast Homecoming parade – there will be no fly-past, no weapons carried and a special order been issued to those participating in the Belfast and other homecoming parades. UPDATE More links here. UPDATE 2 Changes to the protest plan. It will now leave from Dunville Park in west Belfast not a city centre venue and proceed along the Grosvenor road until it reaches Fisherwick Place (ie Jury’s hotel). This reduces many of the potential issues within the city centre itself. Certainly shows more practical sense than the Parades Commission proposals.
