Friday 6 July, 2007.

Following recent low flying helicopter activity in the Andersonstown area of west Belfast the Irish Republican Socialist Party has issued a statement challenging the PSNI over their use of this crude method of surveillance.

Gerard Foster said "Low flying helicopters are renowned for the structural damage they cause to property and in rural areas they have been known to cause of the death of livestock. They have been used by British army soldiers to intimidate the community in the past. We would then pose the question as to why a PSNI helicopter would constantly circle a residential area at low altitude for any length of time."

Mr. Foster continued "It's the view of the IRSP that British army helicopters have been replaced with PSNI helicopters to further implement the British policy of normalising their rule in Ireland."

Mr. Foster concluded by saying "Certainly if the arguments that we have entered a new policing dispensation are to have any credit, the PSNI mustn't pick up were the British army left off."
