Hi!

After a peaceful Civil Rights march on January 30 , 1972 - from Creggan to Free Derry Corner, in Ireland - units of the British army Parachute Regiment opened fire with automatic rifles and shot dead 13 unarmed civilians , injuring many more . It was later revealed that some days prior to the massacre , the British soldiers involved had been briefed to "...shoot to kill.." at the march.

"This Sunday became known as 'Bloody Sunday' and bloody it was . It was quite unnecessary . It strikes me that the (British) army ran amok that day and shot without thinking of what they were doing . They were shooting innocent people . They may have been taking part in a parade which was banned , but that did not justify the troops coming in and firing live rounds indiscriminately . I would say without reservations that it was sheer unadulterated murder. It was murder , gentlemen" - the words of British Major Hubert O'Neill , Derry City Coroner, at the conclusion of the inquests on the 13 people killed that day by the British Army.

On Saturday 26th January 2013 , a picket to mark the Anniversary of that massacre will be held at the GPO in Dublin , from 12 noon to 2pm . All genuine republicans welcome!

Thanks,
Sharon.

Hi !
Despite the presence of both uniformed Gardaí and armed members of the political police (and some bad weather!) this picket, to mark the 41st anniversary of Derry's 'Bloody Sunday' , went ahead as planned and 1,200 republican leaflets were distributed during the 135 minutes it lasted for.
In-depth speeches were delivered by two RSF speakers and their comments , and the overall event, were well received by those present.

A brief report and a few pics can be seen at the 'Related Link' , below , and a full report with more pics will be published in the February 2013 issue of 'Saoirse' , which goes to print on Wednesday , 6th of that month.

Thanks for reading,
Sharon.
