More than 5,000 March on Bloody Sunday Anniversary

A crowd of more than 5 thousand people took part in the 42nd anniversary march of Bloody Sunday in Derry, where 14 people were shot dead and murdered by the British Army, on a civil rights march.
A banner calling for Justice for Bloody Sunday along with the traditional 14 white crosses left the Bishop’s Field in Creggan as did the original Bloody Sunday.
The crowd then marched through the Creggan Estate down the Brandywell following the route taken in 1972. Bands from Dublin, Belfast, Scotland and other parts of Ireland followed.
Huge waves of republicans, brought the numbers up to somewhere around 10,000 by the end of the march, despite the absence of provisional Sinn Fein not taking part, however this was offset by large numbers from Republican Sinn Fein taking part, augmented by 32CSM and many other socialist groups.
A singer led the crowd in the civil rights anthem ‘We Shall Overcome’ along with a minute’s silence. On Free Derry Corner a meeting chaired by the veteran activist Bernadette (Devlin) McAliskey took place, who told the crowd, she was not confident of getting justice from the latest inquiry into Bloody Sunday by the PSNI.
She referred to the PSNI statement about starting interviews with up to 1000 witnesses who gave evidence at the Saville Inquiry: “When the police come to you tell them Bernadette said why don’t they start with the accused men and see what they have to say.Surely it would be more obvious to begin questioning the accused first. I think some of them would admit their guilt right away and start telling who said what to who about Bloody Sunday.”
She introduced the speaker Stafford Scott of the Mark Duggan Campaign in London saying she had come to know communities like Tottenham very well during her time as a Westminster MP. Mr. Scott likened the experience of Bloody Sunday to what had happened in London with the killing ‘of an unarmed man’ Mark Duggan by police. Describing Ms McAliskey as ‘a heroine of mine’ for her work with working class communities like Broadwater Farm in Tottenham.
Afterwards the crowd dispersed peacefully.
