Ronan Kerr Protest Rally

Any ordinary citizen who feels that attending a mass rally is not the best thing to do in order to show your anger at recent acts of violence needs to be set straight. Several thousand people gathered today at Belfast City Hall to show solidarity and to pay their respects to 25-year-old Pc Ronan Kerr was buried this morning in Co. Tyrone.

Attending such a rally shows that this is not wanted. It was a brilliant turn out, and over the last few days many people have joined in unity to fight this behaviour. Physically showing disapproval is a stronger statement than any other and I feel a strong statement has been made by many today.
