THE fifth loyalist protest in Enniskillen took place on Friday night with more planned in the weeks ahead.
According to Alex Elliott, chairman of Traditional Ulster Voice, up to 70 loyalists objecting to the removal of the Union Flag from Belfast City Hall turned out for the latest protest, this time at Gaol Square in Enniskillen.
The Orangeman criticised "pan-Nationalist politicians" in the Townhall and described the inclusion of the Irish language on Council-owned vehicles as the "continued discrimination against the Unionist people within the county."
Willie Frazer, victims campaigner from South Armagh, spoke at the protest and criticised the DUP for going into Government with Sinn Fein.
He added: "[The] IRA are attempting to re-write history that they were the victims of the Troubles. You know exactly who the victims were. We know what happened at the Cenotaph twenty five years ago. Read the names on the memorial. The innocent slaughtered by animals."

"...and another thing," continued Willie, wagging his finger, "...they've gone and painted the playing fields green. We all know they've been orange this long time but aw no, they had to be green so they did. I tell you what, it's time for those nationalists to listen to the majority in this wee country. That's how democracy works. It's a pan-nationalist conspiracy so it is. And the DUP are just as bad - they're in it too. A big consipracy with the pan-nationalists and the DUP. And the UUP. The pan-nationalists and the DUP and the UUP. And the yellow ones too whatever they're called. Everyone except us basically. Next they'll be making our sunsets green and then where will we be? Mars."

Irish language is a language that's like saying the English language is discriminating against nationalists, btw it's funny how lots of unionists have irish surnames oh and willie loved seeing you in your green, white and orange hat at the GAS Gaelic game! It was a democratic vote get use to it, even the UK doesn't care btw how does it feel the UK doesn't want the North of Ireland because it's full of bigots and drains their resources and that's actually a fact search it up!

Here Willie Frazer... What about those flags out the sligo road enniskillen you's aren't so eager to get them flags down, aye that's exactly what I thought so what your not a Bigot wouldn't be so sure about that now, see when it comes to easter time though and you complain about the flags on the cornagrade road I don't think so, last year our tri colour flag and erin go bragh flags only flew for 2 weeks if even before we were asked to take them down, so here's how it is the union flag can fly not a problem? But the tri colour can't? What's that all about? Its not on!! The sligo road is 1 of the busiest roads in enniskillen with thousands using it everyday same as the cornagrade road but at least we had respect and decentcy to take the flags down when we are asked, not that but the union flag is on t.v almost every single day of the week with the thousands protesting about it, do you really think that any1 cared about the flag until it was took down from above the city hall? I don't personally, to be fair maybe the nationalists should protest why not for a united ireland? Only thing is willie we wouldn't lower ourselfs to the standards that the unionists have went to. To be fair I think the union jacks and red hands should be taken down from the sligo road as its not fair and the southern come in that direction also. There will be an argument over this as where do you see the fairness in the union jack allowed to be flown and the tri colour not? Its seriously not understandable and I can see a big uproar about it.
