Bloody Sunday 50 Years On: The Long March for Justice — International Solidarity Rally January 18th

PBP_Bloody_Sunday_50_YearsOn January 30th, 1972, 13 innocent people in Derry were callously murdered by members of the British army’s Parachute Regiment. Half a century on, the British establishment continues to obstruct moves to hold it to account for these criminal actions. The long march for justice continues.

2022 marks the 50th anniversary of the terrible event known as Bloody Sunday. But is also a milestone in the long march for truth and justice that continues to this day. Join us for an international online solidarity rally, as we remember this tragic occasion, and recommit ourselves to ending state repression both here in Ireland and internationally.

Speakers include:

Eamonn McCann: journalist and recipient of the Amnesty International Media Award for his campaigning around Bloody Sunday.

Tariq Ali: renowned writer, anti-war activist and author of The Forty-Year War in Afghanistan.

Kate Nash: campaigner and the sister of William Nash, who was killed on Bloody Sunday.
