SIPTU activists were out on the streets of Derry on Saturday (27th August) supporting the second annual Foyle Pride parade. They joined with thousands of people including trade union and community activists, all united in celebrating diversity and demanding equality for the LGBT community.
SIPTU Lead Organiser Martin O’Rourke said,
“SIPTU were very proud to march at Foyle Pride and it was great to see so many trade union and community activists turn out in support of LGBT rights. The march was a celebration of diversity and equality, but it was also to send a clear message that homophobia and associated attacks are absolutely wrong and will not be tolerated. The thousands who turned out in Derry was a powerful cross community demonstration of solidarity.”
