Protests are set to take place in Derry following the decision made on Thursday toprosecute over Bloody Sunday.
Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans are said to be planning on protesting in the city center over thePublic Prosecution Service's (PPS) decision to prosecute one former British soldier over the murders on Bloody Sunday.
The PPS said that they believed that they had enough evidence toprosecute 'Soldier F' for the murders ofJames Wray and William McKinney on Bloody Sunday in Derry in January 1972.
The soldier is also facing four counts of attempted murder.
Alan Barry, the founder of the group, spoke with the Belfast Telegraph and said that he wants former British soldiers to take to the streets to protest the decision made against the soldier.
He said:"We are not happy.
"One paratrooper prosecuted is one paratrooper too many. It should have been none.
"We are putting out a call to as many veterans who served in Northern Ireland and want to travel over and descend on Londonderry and march through the streets.
"We will show people that we will not tolerate one of ours being prosecuted when 300 convicted killers were released from jail and 150 'on the run' letters were handed out to those who weren't apprehended."
Once this protest was announcedRepublican group Saoradh announced that they would oppose any march by theJustice for Northern Ireland Veterans.
The said in a statement:"Saoradh wish to make it abundantly clear that we will provide an opportunity for Republicans to radically confront this potential grotesque gathering in the city.
"We refuse to allow such a display of support for imperialism, occupation, colonialism and slaughter to go unchallenged.
"Saoradh hereby publicly state that we will mobilise the people of Derry and beyond to ensure that these former Crown Force members are denied access to the streets of our city."
