review of the 36th city hall event image

Belfast City Hall
9th May 2015

Dear Sir/Madam,

Thank you for expressing an interest in joining with us as we mark the march past of Belfast City Hall by the 36th (Ulster) Division on the 8th May 1915.

All those taking part should note the four principles the organisers are obliged to adhere to;

1. Commemorations/Events had to be based on fact.
2. Communities should develop evidence based activities which give people an in depth understanding after considering what the broader implications are of their event.
3. Recognise and respecting different perceptions/impacts.
4. Work towards outcomes which provide a better understanding for all.

In addition we ask that all participants and indeed those watching to do nothing which would besmirch the name of our forefathers. Lastly we would ask all to observe a strict no alcohol policy.
