Bishop pleads for calm after violence in Belfast

Catholic World News - July 12, 2011

Reacting to a spate of violence in Belfast surrounding the annual marches of the Orange Order, Bishop Noel Treanor of Down and Connor has implored everyone involved to “avoid provocation.”

The “marching season” has seen a series of clashes, threatening the peace in Northern Ireland, anti-Catholic demonstrators have burned the flags of Ireland, the Vatican, and (in a gesture aimed at a large Catholic immigrant community) Poland.
