Mounting anger at police handling of loyalist protests in north Belfast has led to an anti-PSNI poster campaign.
In recent days, notices have been appearing in shop windows advising officers they are not welcome on the premises.
Relations between the police and the local community have become increasingly strained since a ban on a Twelfth of July parade past the nearby Ardoyne area.
Tensions have increased further in recent days since an incident on the Crumlin Road left a number of people requiring hospital treatment.
On Monday evening, groups of loyalists and republicans confronted each other at the Ardoyne interface. Billy Hutchinson of the PUP later claimed the police responded against the loyalists with excessive force.
However, a PSNI spokesman said officers “intervened and quickly restored calm”.
Speaking to the News Letter yesterday, one of those taking part in the loyalist Twaddell protest said: “The police just aren’t welcome on the Shankill full stop. As far as I can see there won’t be any shops serving them (the police) and they’ve only themselves to blame.”
