Oh Im sorry...... I didnt mean it to come across like 'no-one cares a all'... its just that it seems (to me) such a small problem thats internal and pathetic, compared to events like what happened at the World Trade Centre, or any other vicious crime where someone is shot for their purse, etc..............sozzzzzz


Its just a rally of our pple sick and tired of UVF/IRA and their violence, which came to a head esp over that young postal worker being shot cause he was Catholic...... ...and I guess I want to express my anger and pain at it all.........

i think everyone understood ya maddie. what's going on in NI is most certainly not small or unimportant. it's just as tragic when one person is killed as it is when 3000 are killed. senseless violence is always heartbreaking. it inspires me to hear about things like your rally because it gives me hope that most people in the world are good and maybe, someday, those hopes and prayers will turn into peace. idealistic, i know, but those are just my thoughts...

My prayers are for peace in Ireland, as well as everywhere else.

Didn't they call Him the "Prince of Peace"?

it sounds like it was huge, maddie:
******************************************

Rallies in North call for end to sectarian violence

All paramilitary organisations in Northern Ireland must disband and the problem of sectarianism be deplored, tens of thousands of people attending trade union peace rallies in Northern Ireland were told today.

The group withdrew the threats after they were condemned by the UFF. However the two groups are believed to be one and the same.

Northern Ireland Secretary Dr John Reid earlier urged people to join the protests and said he was allowing his 3,500 departmental staff in the Northern Ireland Office to attend. He said there was a need for an "extraordinary unity of purpose" following the murder of postman Daniel McColgan and the threats against his colleagues and teachers.

Many employers, including the head of the Civil Service, have said that while they support the lunchtime protest, they cannot endorse the call for a total work stoppage between noon and midnight.

Public transport has been heavily hit. Train services have shut down until 2 p.m. and bus services have been heavily cut. Banks warned customers to expect a restricted service. Services between the Republic and the North have also been affected.

Teachers at the heart of the protest and many schools were expected to close for the day, others to send their pupils home early.
