DO I NEED to assure E. Rodgers, October 28, that I am against all forms of violence, especially the taking of human life?
i am also equally opposed to the injustice which breeds such violence.
From the recent riots in Britain we can all learn a lesson; the conditions of Toxteth and Belfast are not dissimilar.
In deploring the violence of both areas 1 cannot close my eyes to the root causes of the conse quent civil disturbance.
My plea in my article of October 16 was for a new look Ireland with constitutional recognition of the rights of both Protestant and Catholic cornmunities.
I want peace with justice for all. and not just peace enough for one group with consequent injustice for the other.
My many Protestant friends of Northern Ireland are as much part of my campaign for a just peace as are my Catholic friends. Injustice ultimately breeds violence.
Justice must make no distinction of colour or creed if it is to lead to true and lasting peace for which we must all work.
