RESTRIZIONI IMPOSTE ALLA KINGSMILL MARCH
Parades Commission places restrictions on Kingsmills march (BBC News NI)
A parade which will retrace the route taken by 10 Protestant workmen murdered in south Armagh in 1976 will go ahead with restrictions.
Ten textile workers were murdered in the IRA atrocity at Kingsmills.
The Parades Commission has limited the number of people taking part in the 25 February march.
It has also ruled that there should be no placards, flags or banners in the procession and that it begins and disperses promptly.
On Tuesday, SDLP and Sinn Fein representatives met the commission to voice opposition to the parade going through the village of Whitecross.
They said a parade through the mainly nationalist village would damage community relations.
It would be the first time such a parade has been held.
After the commission’s ruling, the parade will feature the one Protestant survivor of the attack, Alan Black, as well as two immediate relatives of each of those who were killed or injured in the attack.
It will follow the route the victims took in their minibus on the night they were murdered.
The march has been organised by Families Acting for Innocent Relatives (Fair).
William Frazer of Fair said the conditions imposed by the Parades commission were not acceptable.
