I've lived here all my life, really, I'm nearly fifty and I remember the parades when I was very, very very young. I used to live about a mile and a half from here and the Orangemen every year, there were thousands of them, used to come down parts of the Crumlin Road, down the Cliftonville and around where I lived.
They used to have the police and the security forces and to have the road sealed off for hours and hours and hours before it. This is completely different. It's smaller numbers, its not as inconvenient to the community as it was. But it's still wrong to have what is basically and a lot of people ... and I agree with it .. this is like a racist, supremacist march through an area where it's not wanted. It seems to be illegitimate.
The people who march in this parade wouldn't be in this area 364 days of the rest of the year. Why they're allowed to march down these roads other than as an act of provocation I can't really understand.
