This video from Ireland says about itself:
Approximately 350 people demonstrated in Belfast, as part of the international “World against War” day of action. March 15th 2008.
Organised by the Belfast anti War Movement, the demo was supported by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions, NUS-USI, NIPSA and the Ireland Palestine solidarity campaign.
Ireland: Republicans pledged today to actively oppose any British army march through Belfast after the city council approved a homecoming parade for the Royal Irish Regiment and Irish Guards returning from Afghanistan: here.
The Bruce Carson scandal is growing by the day.
