RAW FOOTAGE: Rioting at Lower Newtownards Road - Short Strand Interface, July 12 2013

Orange culture on parade - another attack on Nationalist Short Strand area in east Belfast.

Meanwhile, Orange Order Grand Chaplain Mervyn Gibson, speaking in Rasharkin, County Antrim, addressed the decision to stop flying the union flag throughout the year at Belfast City Hall and the ensuing loyalist protests against the decision.

"I believe the flag protesters did this generation a great service by waking us from our slumber - apathy, pessimism and defeatism were walking us into a united Ireland," he said.

"Rather than waking up to fight each other, we need to concentrate yet again on defeating republicanism, this time in the certain cultural war.

"Let this generation not be found wanting, do not fight the war on yesterday's battlefield - fight the war on today's battleground as we unite to get rid of the Parades Commission."
