Say No to the Pope
A protest group on Facebook called “Say no to the Pope” has been set up in opposition to the Pope’s visit to Ireland.
Some of the organisers had ordered tickets with the deliberate intention of not showing up – spoiled tickets so to speak…
“The page was simply created to see if anyone shared the same interest in deliberately not attending by applying for a ticket to which you are entitled and not using it as a sign of peaceful and silent protest against the church and it’s crimes, not against it’s devoted followers. Evidently we found a lot of support…” a statement read.
The Pope will not visit Northern Ireland on his visit at the end of August.
