Ulster says no to refugees was the message spelt out during a protest march in Belfast today.Organised by the Protestant Coalition, marchers held banners spelling out their opposition to refugees coming to Northern Ireland.
Yesterday in the High Court, Mr Justice Deeny denied an attempt from a Syrian refugee to prevent the march going ahead.
However, the applicant was granted permission to legally challenge the Parades Commission decision to allow the march.
He instead emphasised: “The organisers are obliged to refrain from using words which could be perceived to be sectarian, and making claims about the Prophet Muhammad of the sort in some of these Facebook pages would be clearly sectarian and might be considered provocative, insulting or threatening.”
Emergency legal action was brought on behalf of the refugee, who was granted anonymity amid fears he could be at risk if his identity was revealed.
