Residents should be left in peace

Sinn Fein Chairperson Mitchel McLaughlin to day called for Garvaghy Road residents to be left in peace.

Mr. McLaughlin said:

``The residents of the Garvaghy Road are the victim community. Their rights should be upheld and defended. They should not be pressurised. They have been on the receiving end of much brutality and this year they should be left in peace.

``The Orange Order are threatening to turn this situation into a crisis. The unionist leadership should be using their influence to encourage the Orange Order to re-route.''
