Loyalists oppose change

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams commenting on the UVF action in Dublin said:

``When the loyalist ceasefire was called it was conditional on no constitutional and political change.

``The prospect of real and meaningful change is rigidly opposed by the unionist and loyalist leaderships.

``This is the agenda behind last nights events.

``Agreement threatens no one and it is obvious that real negotiations are essential if we are to secure a lasting peace acceptable to all sections of the Irish people. This must remain everyone¹s immediate priority.''
