4m Ulster Rebels Want Peace BELFAST. Northern Ireland - '.-y - The Ulster Freedom Fighters, a Protestant hand blamed by the British for some of the murders in Northern Ireland's sectarian war, asked on Saturday for an end to the violence in the province. "Northern Ireland is now entering a period where the absence of violence is essential and we think the people should be given the chance to think clearly about the future," the group said in a statement distributed by the Ulster Defense Association. ; Little is known about the ^outlawed Ulster Freedom iFighters. The British army ftas accused the band of sever- ;arassassinations. but some 'Protestant militants have ins- 'jsfed the Freedom Fighters do ;t»t exist and that the murders '·were actually committed by ;the British provocateurs. ·'.; The Ulster Defense Assn.. largest of the Protestant par- ·arnilitary organizations, said ii'.had been contacted by the Freedom Fighters and asked Ito.'put out the statement. ;. "However, wearenotsatis- ·Qed they are behind all the jobs blamed on them," a UDA spokesman said. "Like everyone else, they have had enough of the violence and. if after elections it is found the people can work together, they will be as happy as anyone," he said. Militant Protestants in the province are agitating for new elections to replace the coalition government of moderate Protestant and Roman Catholics that collapsed last month after a crippling Protestant- led strike. * » * THE MILITANTS expect a majority will be returned pledged to oppose any form of conciliation with the predominantly Catholic Irish Republic. Leaders of the Protestant paramilitary groups met last Monday to consider proposing a cease-fire to the largely Catholic Irish Republican Army, which is battling to oust the British from Ulster and to unite the province with the Irish Republic. But the Freedom Fighters were not represented at the meeting. Attending were the recently legalized Ulster Volunteer Force, the Red Hand and the UDA.
