    Default Unionist protestors to allow 'traffic to flow in both lanes'.

    Union flag protestors are to adopt a new strategy by holding ‘white-line’ demonstrations, allowing traffic to flow in both lanes, it has emerged. Ulster People’s Forum was founded to discuss the on going protests and the wider issues within the Protestant Unionist Loyalist community(PUL).





    This will come as a big relief to most people across the province as over the last two months trade in Belfast's city centre has been decimated by unionists protesting over the removal of the Union flag from BCC for most of the year. Indeed The Confederation for British Industry claims the protests have cost the economy over 15 million pounds. Chairman of the Ulster People’s Forum Jamie Bryson said:

    “The Ulster People’s Forum have a consensus that those who took part as representatives of their various areas on Saturday feel that the peaceful protests should move to a new phase of white line protests and also localised protests outside Council offices to coincide with monthly meetings in each respective area.

    “The UPF are keen to emphasise that they do not claim to speak for all the protestors and whilst we as a group will move forward encouraging white line protests we will remain supportive of anyone who wishes to exercise their democratic right to peaceful protest in a non violent manner.”

    A welcomed development for the 'ordinary' man and woman in and around NI as it also comes as 11 people including two women, were arrested after road blockages and protests in Derry and east Belfast. It also brings an end to the aptly named 'Operation Standstill'.

    I didn't say anything about the white line pickets, they wouldn't bother me.
    The statement from the PFJ, sorry UPF has only sewn yet more confusion among the fleg protesters. (and me)

    Yes, he's a 'born-again'. He's the one carrying a UVF flag. He loves flags. Flags are his life. Flags and Jesus. He was born in 1990..
