The NDL describe themselves as: "Built by the people for the people to protect our great nation."

The event comes just months after tensions between Loyalists and Republicans boiled over in the city.

Loyalist demonstrators also protested against two further Republican marches in the city centre just weeks later with a huge police presence brought in to contain any trouble.
