Major Breakthrough reached with youths in Millennium Way
Over the weekend our activists were on the ground engaging with young people, their parents and local residents in the Millenium Way, Springfield Avenue and Cluain Mor Avenue areas following months of anti-community activity.
Within the past 48 hours, we believe we have reached a major breakthrough as we have now got verbal agreements from the local youth and have started constructive and positive talks with them and their parents.
Over the last week, these youths were threatened with an increase in PSNI patrols of the area, a move that has been widespread condemned due to the recent actions of the PSNI in the area who have antagonised these kids.
We have now established an open and honest dialogue with those involved and also those affected by this anti-community activity, and together we will be drawing up a long term resolution that doesnt involve threats or life changing criminal records.
