Along Royal Avenue!!
For the first time ever!!! Since Belfast existed!!
Minimal opposition despite call-out posters like this
and protesters like these
who responded to the call
Loyalists attacked the first Irish republican rally to pass through Belfast city centre.
Golf balls, bottles, fireworks, umbrellas and even cast iron rain gutter was thrown at republicans marching along Royal Avenue.
Last year was a different story
Today the days of Loyalists’ hegemony ended –
A new day finally dawned in Belfast
