Homes attacked on the Springfield Road. When driving home from a cumann meeting yesterday evening, members of Belfast 32csm noticed a group of around ten teenagers throwing bottles at homes. After pulling the car over the crowd took off into Isadore avenue leading to the loyalist Highfield estate while shouting sectarian slogans. Our members remained in the area for a while and spoke with a number of residents who said that attacks had been increasing recently. This increase leads us to believe the attacks are being orchestrated to heighten tensions in the community, particularly now that loyalist paramilitaries have vowed to continue and increase protests against the Irish Sea border and the protocol. Whilst legitimate to defend your home and area, we want to advise the youth in our community not to be drawn into tit for tat conflict, we know all too well that british crown forces will take advantage of the situation to blame nationalist youths for trouble flaring and give credence to those loyalists wanting to cause trouble. At the same time we want to advise people living in these interface areas to be careful, stay vigilant and look out for your neighbours. If anyone needs assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us.
