  1. PRESS RELEASE – Bloody Sunday 2012 ‘March for Justice’ Update

    Civil Rights ‘March for Justice’ 2012, Solidarity Event

    A recent private function, held at Crawford Square, under the auspices of the Civil Rights Veterans’ Network, was held on Wednesday Nov. 23rd. Relatives of some of those murdered, shot and injured on Jan. 30th 1972 by the 1st Parachute regiment, discussed a check-list of tasks pertaining to the proposed ‘March for Justice’, to be held in Derry on January 29th, commencing at 2.30pm along a traditional route, beginning at Creggan Shops.

    The meeting was chaired by a local author and historian, Fionnbarra O’Dochartaigh, a co-founder of the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association in 1967. He was flanked on the platform by Kate and Linda Nash whose brother, William (19), was killed and whose father was seriously wounded on reaching his dying son to offer aid and comfort. Also in the audience was a hospitalised survivor who recalled others wounded and injured, and a brother of Ranger Best, a Derry-born serving British soldier who was killed by the Official IRA, on May, 21, 1972.

    Amongst those who spoke in favour of the’ March for Justice’, was Helen Deery, whose brother Manus, was killed. She has indicated a desire to carry the main ‘March for Justice’ banner alongside a brother or sister of Ranger William Best on January 29th. Both families believe that both brutal untimely deaths are connected, as many local people believe that Ranger Best was tortured and shot dead in retaliation for Manus Derry’s murder, a day earlier, by the British Army.

    On the eve of International Human Rights Day, key organisers will convene a public meeting and are making a special appeal for stewards and marching bands to assist them in advance of the ‘March for Justice’. The demo, as in previous decades, will commemorate the 40th anniversary of the original civil rights demonstration, organised against internment without charge or trial and the torture of detainees, following army and police swoops which began on August 9th 1971. The conference room at Pilots Row Community Centre, in the Bogside, has been booked for Friday, December 9th. Proceedings will commence at 8.pm. The local media, the families of the fourteen fatal victims of Bloody Sunday, and seventeen shot or injured, will be invited. Those wishing to attend, or help, so as to promote the ‘March for Justice’ are cordially invited to contact the civil rights veterans’ network by phone or e-mail: 028-71-286359- Mobile: 0778366081 or rights.civil@gmail.com

    As space may be limited, please indicate that you wish to be present, so that seats are reserved for those indicating in advance their intention to attend. After the ‘media slot’ @ 8.15+ reserved signs on seats will be removed. Go raibh maith agat – Thanks You!!!!:
