Silent Protest live blog…

It seems an absolute contradiction in terms, but I’ve set up a live blog for the Silent Protest at 1pm today. In fact, I don’t expect to be ‘blogging’ anything at all myself. But I have set it up to draw in Twitter entries marked with the hastags: #silentprotest, #Belfast, #Newry, #Derry, or #Londonderry . If you want your thoughts – before and after the protest – to appear here, then just add one of these to your ‘tweet’. Politicians and other public figures are particularly welcome. As it happens I’l bet there myself, although I will have to disappear shortly afterwards. I guess there’s a possibility of meeting up at the end of the day, after five or so. But I’ll leave that to whatever conversation arises. (NB I’m on the wagon for Lent!!)
