Terror re-enactment on streets a disgrace

How, or why were a group allowed to dress in paramilitary garb and carry replica firearms to re-enact murderous events in Londonderry? If they wanted to show the horror of terrorism, they should also have poured gallons of blood and body parts on to the streets to illustrate the effects of these attacks.

There is no doubt in my mind the re-enactment was an attempt to glorify terrorism. Clearly, this is a further attempt to rewrite history - murder is murder and terrorists terrorise.

There was nothing glorious about the actions of terrorists. They were heinous, inhuman acts and we must remember the victims - not the perpetrators.
