Differing messages have been delivered at Easter commemorations around the North today. Sinn Fein president, Gerry Adams, has accused dissidents of trying to hi-jack the republican project. Adams told the main Northern republican commemoration in Belfast that democratic ways had now been constructed to work for a united Ireland. In stark contrast, a statement issued by the 32 County Sovereignty Group, regarded as linked to the Real IRA, accused Sinn Fein of supporting British rule in Ireland. Sinn Fein has condemned an arson attack on its offices in Derry saying all those responsible had destroyed were portraits of the Hunger strikers. The SDLP assembly member for Newry and Armagh, Dominic Bradley, meanwhile said the use of violence for political ends was always wrong and all the strategy and support in the world could not make it right.
