Civil Rights - Civil Unrest?

Sin an téama ar díospoireacht sa Trá Ghearr anocht ar 7i.n. sa Ionad Phobail.

That's the theme of a discussion taking place tonight in the Short Strand Community Centre. It follows on from a similar discussion hosted by community groups in East Belfast in the East Belfast Mission Hall on the Lower newtonards Road a few months back; the theme of that debate was 'Constitutionally Different - Politically Similar?'

On the panel that night were Joe O'Donnell , Sammy Douglas, Dawn Purvis and Tom Hartley. Tonight we'll have Fergus O'Hare, Francie Molloy, Paul Bew and Roy Garland.

The discussions are part of a process of cross-community interaction in the East of the City, a discussion and exchange of views. These types of events are very important; more often than not they take place under the radar and allow a frank and up-close debate, which of course is healthy!

It's part of a clár oibre/programme of work of groups in the Short Strand and Greater East Belfast. Work which hopefully allow a better understanding of each other and our politics. Long may it continue, i enjoyed the last one, I have no doubt to I'll enjoy tonight!!

Chomh maith bíonn se i gcónaí deas bualadh le iar-príomhoide s'agam Fergus!!!lol
