Hi!

After a peaceful Civil Rights march on January 30 , 1972 - from Creggan to Free Derry Corner - 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 by the British Army on that day.

On Saturday, 25th January 2014, RSF will hold its annual 'Bloody Sunday' picket at the GPO in Dublin, at 12 Noon. All genuine republicans welcome!

Thanks,
Sharon.

Hi!

RSF maintained their 'Bloody Sunday' picket in O'Connell Street in Dublin on Saturday 25th January 2014 for over two hours, despite the atrocious weather conditions and a practically near-deserted city centre. All 260 'leaflet packs' were distributed and the names and details of those massacred in Derry on the 30th January 1972 were read out, as was a letter from a British Army brigade commander in which the actions of the Parachute Regiment on that day were praised!
A few words and some pics re the picket can be seen at the 'Related Link' , below, and a full report will be published in the February 2014 issue of 'Saoirse', which goes to print on Wednesday 5th of that month.

Thanks,
Sharon.
