Resisting G8 Oppression – Presenting Alternatives
Monday 17th June
Protest On The Lough
A Flotilla of Protesters will take to the Lough – we expect this to happen around 4pm.
We are hoping to have a music/cultural event to accompany this event and will provide more details as they emerge.
Main Event: Protest March
Starting at: Enniskillen Library and walking around the Island of Enniskillen, through the main town and out to the Security Fence at road to the Lough Erne Hotel (approximately 2.5 miles). Rally at the Fence to follow. We will then make our way back into Enniskillen Public Library.
We anticipate that parking for march participants will be provided at two sites in Enniskillen and we will communicate these and directions to you as soon as they are confirmed.
Environmental issues specifically the threat of Fracking will be one of the main themes of the actions that we are organising but we respect everyone’s right to peaceful protest and recognise that group’s will have their own reasons to oppose the G8.
Fermanagh G8 Not Welcome welcomes all groups on our parade provided that they are non-sectarian and accept the need for an inclusive approach allowing the participation of both local communities.
We ask that all participants on the parade behave throughout in a peaceful manner which will focus the media’s attention on the issues concerned as opposed to a negative image. We want to encourage local people to join the protests against the G8 and to counter police and media scare stories which are designed to discourage people from taking up their legitimate right to protest this event.
Parking is being provided at 2 locations so far-
Busses at the site of the old Hospital and cars on the site of the old Unipork factory,
