Motion text

That this House notes the events of Saturday 25th February, when several hundred UK citizens attempted to demonstrate peacefully in Dublin regarding the hundreds of innocent victims of terrorism, many of whom sought sanctuary and refuge in the Irish Republic, having obtained lawful permission from the Irish authorities to do so; calls upon the United Kingdom Government to press the Dublin authorities to pursue vigorously those responsible for the disgraceful scenes of rioting and sectarianism that were carried out by republican protestors, witnessed by many independent observers; and restates the firmly held view of the greater number in Northern Ireland that all terrorist victims should be remembered and no disgraceful scenes such as those seen on Saturday must be allowed to deflect relatives from doing so.
