BELFAST: The Draft Public Assemblies, Parades and Protests Bill which is ostensibly designed to create a  framework for resolving the question of controversial parades and demonstrations, especially during the marching season is generating opposition from workers in the North because of its implications for Trade union and political demonstrations organised by the Trade Union Movement and protests against the Wars in Afghanistan and Iraq as well as community protests such as anti racist demonstrations like those that took place last year on the Lisburn Road after the racist attacks in  Belgravia Avenue and Wellesley Avenue.
