IRSP Slam Bloody Sunday Decision

The IRSP have slammed the decision by the Public Prosecution Service not to bring about charges against no more than one solder responsible for the Bloody Sunday Massacre.

14 people were killed and over 15 were wounded on Bloody Sunday when the British Army directed by Mike Jackson opened fire on innocent civil rights protestors in Derry.

For over 28 years, the British Government attempted to blame the victims as responsible before conceding in 2010 following a long campaign by the victims families. Today’s announcement is a continuation of that miscarriage of justice, the British Government continue to defend British War crimes and criminals in Ireland.

The IRSP send our ongoing solidarity with the families and reaffirm our resolute commitment to support them in their quest for justice.
