LVF ready to return to murder

In a statement to the Toronto Star newspaper, the Loyalist Vounteer Force has declared that ``it is ready to return to violence'', despite their claims of being on ceasefire.

The gang, characterised by their indiscriminate slaughter of innocent Catholics, pleaded with ``the Ulster people of Canada to realise the truth of the struggle Protestants now face in Ulster...Remember your ancestors, people who travelled from Ulster to Canada and who overcame the odds to create the country you live in today. This determination still exists in Ulster at this time. Support us in our fight for survival.''

In relation to the Good Friday document, the group said it ``will have a devastating effect on the history and culture of the Protestant people, and the LVF will resist this to the end''. They continued, ``This is part of the overall British government strategy to remove once and for all Northern Ireland from the Union. We state once again we will resist this conspiracy by force if necessary.''

Though they may complain of the British Government and republicanism, the likely victims of their depravity will be unsuspecting Catholics.
