Relatives to Hold Stormont Protest

2 February, 2004


Families of those killed and injured through the British government policy of collusion will tomorrow hold a protest at Stormont at 12.15 pm to coincide with the start of the Review.

Group spokesperson Mark Sykes who was shot and seriously injured in the Sean Graham Bookies Shooting today said:

"Tomorrow a group of relatives who have been bereaved through the British policy of state sanctioned murder will hold a short protest at Stormont to coincide with the start of the Review process.

" It is important that the British government realise that the victims of collusion will not rest until the truth comes out. The issue of collusion and the legacy it has left needs to be on the agenda of the British government and those parties in the Review.

" Tomorrow's protest will come on the eve of a trip to London on Wednesday when almost 100 relatives will picket the Ministry of Defence and the Headquarters of the British Tory party. The families are determined that the truth surrounding the murder of our loved ones will not continue to be suppressed by the culture of concealment which operates at the heart of the British Establishment."
