BRITAIN First say they are holding a rally in Ballymena this Saturday afternoon (October 27).

A leaflet drop was made at homes in recent days.

The leaflets say the rally is to address concerns about aspects of immigration to the town.

Britain First held a street rally in Harryville recently which they said was attended by 150 people and the group was also in the town centre.

A Mid & East Antrim Borough Council statement said: “Council continues to work closely with our statutory partners, politicians and the community to deliver a resolution and address the issues we currently face.

“Over the last number of weeks, Council has facilitated a series of multi-agency meetings with our partners, including the PSNI, Housing Executive, Northern Trust Inter-Ethnic Forum, Education Authority and others including church leaders.

“At the heart of those discussions have been the concerns of all members of our community, We have also communicated the facts to address the many inaccuracies currently in the public domain.

“It is vital that when people have any issues, concerns or grievances that they are brought to the attention of the authorities through the proper channels.

“That way they can be investigated and action taken if required.

“Everyone who calls Ballymena home has the right to expect to be shown tolerance and respect and likewise they should display those qualities to others”.

In recent weeks a meeting was held at Harryville Community Centre by a ‘Concerned Residents’ group which attracted an estimated 400 people.

  • It is understood a TV documentary is currently being filmed about the immigration issue in Ballymena.
