Live from Belfast as unrests continue across Northern Ireland

Ruptly is live from Belfast on Friday, April 9, as protests continue following several nights of unrest across Northern Ireland.

On Wednesday, a bus was set on fire and protesters threw petrol bombs and hurled stones at police. Local reports say over 40 police officers have been injured, and at least 10 arrests have been made in the last few days mainly in unionist or loyalist areas.

Protests were sparked after authorities decided not to prosecute the Sinn Fein party for their alleged violations of COVID-measures at republican Bobby Storey's funeral last year. Brexit policies have also contributed to rising tensions, with the Good Friday Agreement threatened by the strained EU-UK trade deal.

    @michael king They're Northern Irish not Irish, the riots happened because of the Irish sea Border, Protestant Unionists don't want it because it makes different from the rest of the UK when they should be treated the same.

    You obviously have no clue, had the police used heavy tactics there would have been an uproar.

The PSNI is damned if they do, damned if they don't when carrying out their duties.

    Your suspicion is understandable, but in fact RT is one of the few big media companies left that actually go out and film the totality of things and then let the viewer make up their own minds, no bought-and-paid-for journalists telling you what to think. That's what real journalism was once, everywhere. No doubt the Russian politicians can see that the more ordinary people here are able to see of the real world, as opposed to the heavily censored versions that is now all that we get from our Mainstream Media, the more trouble will accrue for our corrupt political system. I'm all right with that. We think the Russians are corrupt. OK. Isn't it time, though, that more of us learn that UK, and USA, and French, etc etc, politicians are just the same?
