Veterans demand end of NI prosecutions

Broadcasting House, London. Sat 18 May 2019



 

 Barriers around the BBC stopped the protesters moving closer

 There was a large crowd with quite a few wearing red berets

 The barriers stopped them entering the BBC plaza

 though a few managed to get past these

 and soon the barriers were pushed aside and we all walked into the plaza and stopped just short of the main doors

 'Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans'

 'Our veterans fought for you. Our veterans died for you, Now it's your chance to fight for us'

 

 There was some extremely loud chanting

 calling for justice for the veterans

 

 and then a piper walked to the front of the crowd

 followed by a man who turned out to be a UKIP candidate for the European elections, Freddy Varcha.

 He began to speak, but some of the organisers

 rushed forward to stop him, saying 'No Politics!' and he was hustled away.

 The protest continued noisily

 

 

 
     
 

 and I made my way out.
