Where the Campaign is now?
39 years after the massacre, the campaign grows from strength to strength. The families, along with local support, continue to raise the funds necessary to drive the campaign.
As part of an ever growing agenda, the families have met with the the newly appointed Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Owen Paterson. Following this the families are expected to take their campaign to America where they will tell their story to Congress and highlight the campaign on a world wide stage
At the same time the families await independent findings and analysis on the events. A report which will further validate the families story and strengthen their campaign.
The horrific catalogue of events in Ballymurphy between 9th and 11th August 1971 have remained hidden from public knowledge and focus for almost 40 years.
The victims and their familes have never received public recognition or legal redress. With a process of transition from conflict to peace now underway and in an effort to put closure of the events, the families demand:
1. Independent international investigation examining the circumstances surrounding all of the deaths
2. The British government to issue a statement of innocence
3. The British
government to issue a public apology
