Silent protest in Belfast over killings

Yesterday afternoon thousands of people congregated to the City Hall in Belfast is a silent protest against the recent violence and killings here in Northern Ireland.

Organised by trade unions throughout Belfast, many also gathered in Derry, Lisburn, Newry and Downpatrick to show that they don’t want the relative-peace and security in Northern Ireland to break down.

As the silence fell there was a real sense of unity against the shooting of the two soldiers on Saturday and first PSNI officer killed on Monday night.

Whatever has happened to start more killings, we can only hope does not escalate in the way that so many remember [not I], those that know of the worst.
