  • Extended description

    Following a meeting with the Minister of Home Affairs Captain Long, Ian Paisley and Major Ronald Bunting talk to journalists about the People's Democracy march and their own plans.

    Paisley gives his reaction to the unfurling in Toome, Derry, of a Republican club banner from Queen's University Belfast. He describes the march as nothing whatsoever to do with civil rights, but simply an "outlawed rebel march". This is a view which Paisley expressed strongly in his meeting with the Minister of Home Affairs.

    Ronald Bunting reinforces this view by saying that he and his followers have always been restrained.

    This incident had caused debate among the student marchers, as there had been an agreement that there would be no flags or political emblems carried.

    Ian Paisley further comments that he and his followers have always accepted the bans enforced by police and as such have behaved within the law.
