Adams appeals to Trimble and Paisley

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams has this morning, on the eve of the 11th night activities, appealed to David Trimble and Ian Paisley to ``make a positive contribution to the present bleak situation by accepting the rights of the people of the Garvaghy Road and the Lower Ormeau Road and moving to defuse the current crisis''.

Mr. Adams said:

``Leadership is about taking difficult decisions and risks. Neither Mr. Trimble nor Mr. Paisley are simply observers. By respecting the rights of the people of Garvaghy road and the Lower Ormeau they can send a powerful and positive signal and help create a better atmosphere for all of those seeking to rebuild the peace process on the basis of equality.''
