DW Documentary
Twenty years after the Good Friday Agreement peace in Northern Ireland remains tenuous, and violent clashes between Protestants and Catholics continue to occur. Mairéad O’Donnell wants to secure peace for the people of Belfast.

The Orange Order is a fraternal organization of conservative Protestants. Once a year, its members commemorate the victory of Protestant William of Orange over Catholic King James II in 1690, which the Orangemen see as the most important triumph over Catholics to this day. They organize processions in Northern Ireland during the summer to which they wear orange sashes and black bowler hats. The Catholic community sees the marching as provocation ¬– and there are often clashes. Mairéad O’Donnell belongs to the Sinn Féin party and is a Catholic Irish nationalist, but she is determined to bring peace to Belfast.

this extract harks back to the Soviet era propandaganist days of an absolute one-sidedness argument !

how many minutes ( should we say seconds ) did you focus on the unionist side of the argument ????????

you spend the whole alotted time in the nationalist camp !!

it's no wonder most people are turning away from mainstream media such as DW BBC and CNN etc ..

it's completely obvious don't you see even to imbeciles ...

The green and the Orange have more in common than they do with the black and brown immigrants with Muslim beliefs.

If your Irish living in Northern Ireland and dont like it fuck off
Very skewed video looking from one side. The walls are there to prevent missiles being thrown into Cluan Place all year round and where were your cameras when a hail of bottles came on top of the parade thrown from the chapel grounds where the police stood facing the marchers
