Video: Man attacked filming unionist band at Catholic church on the Twelfth
Will the Orange Order condemn this action and parade participants who attacked film-maker?
A BAND taking part in the Twelfth Orange Order parades makes a special point of performing in a circular motion outside the doors of a Catholic church in north Belfast in what can only be interpreted as a provocative, sectarian display.
The band is the Shankill YCV (Young Conway Volunteers, coincidentally the same initials of the UVF's youth wing).
They are heard playing 'The Famine Song', which originated in Scotland, to the tune of the Beach Boys number 'Sloop John B' but replaces the chorus of "I feel so broke up, I wanna go home" with "The Famine is over, why don't you go home?"
Will the Orange Order act to censure it?
Will the Orange Order condemn this action and the Orangemen and the bandsmen who attacked the film-maker?
The PSNI are said to be studying the video.
