Progress must not jeopardised

Published 10/03/2009

The killing of two soldiers in Antrim is an example of a desire to destabilise progress.

Unfortunately, a number of people have hyped up the Good Friday Agreement as a ‘final’ solution.

Any expression of such a conclusion to the sad and tragic history of Ireland can only keep tensions alive.

Whoever was responsible for these vile murders can have no justification.

The New Ireland Group is one of many groups to propose solutions for a stable all-Ireland society which, though striving for independence, would do so by acknowledging interdependence in a shrinking world.
