THE WEEK AHEAD

LONDONDERRY : Marching in Ulster

August 09, 1994

Security forces in Northern Ireland are braced this week for marches by both Roman Catholic Republicans and Protestant Unionists.

Today Republicans will commemorate with parades in several cities the 23rd anniversary of the introduction of internment--imprisonment without trial--in British-ruled Northern Ireland, a practice the London authorities have since discarded.

On Saturday, Protestants will hold an Orange Parade to mark the military victories of William of Orange--later King William III--in Londonderry, marking the beginning of the "marching season" when tempers run high among the Protestants and Roman Catholics of Northern Ireland.
