Letter: Ireland will not be bullied into silence

Sir: The Chief Constable of the RUC took the correct decision to allow 1,300 Orangemen to march through Garvaghy Road. I quote from Sir Hugh Annesley's statement: "There was a bulldozer, perhaps the potential for more." To stop that bulldozer breaking a barricade of barbed wire and concrete blocks it would have been necessary to shoot at the driver. Does anyone except the IRA consider their cause to be furthered by the martyrdom of an Orangeman and the subsequent mayhem throughout the province?
