Its like a page out of my book of poetry Rock Me where I have written a passage on the cover about the end to bricks, bottles, (and golfclubs) and other missiles being hurled at the Police/Public - at these Events in Belfast Northern Ireland but I received a video from Sky News with violent images of burning vehicles and the Police under attack . as the Police had offered an escort to the Orange Marching and the traditional marching apparently ran into violence North of the City of Belfast when the Rioters attacked the Police and one woman Police Officer was taken to hospital. The Commander of the Police Alasdair Finlay commented that he didnt want these violence images of Northern Ireland beamed across the world every summer. Sinn Fein and Democratic Unionists got together to produce a blueprint for the management of these Orange Parades but it was rejected by the Orange Order. Other areas in Northern Ireland affected by this outbreak of violence are Lurgan Co Armagh and Armagh City!
The Police had to use watercanon to control Nationalist rioters ..in the Ardoyn area of Belfast which is a sort of dividing line between Nationalist and Loyalist neighbourhoods. I wonder when my book
"Rock Me" published in the US by www.publishamerica.com will be on the best selling lists or at least on the Educational Board Curriculum as it would enlighten many a student of poetry, politics, and English to read and study what I wrote about these very issues blogged here by Sky News from Belfast Northern Ireland only last night . thanks Sky News!
