In supporting the Bloody Sunday families and the protests called for by the Ballymurphy families, Sinn Féin MLA, Jennifer Mc Cann, has urged the people of Belfast to express their solidarity by attending one of the white line pickets on Monday 14th June.

Jennifer said, “British Crown Forces have been directly responsible for the killing of almost 370 Irish citizens during the conflict including the 14 innocent civilians on Bloody Sunday.

“We have an opportunity on Monday 14th June to stand shoulder to shoulder with the relatives of those victims as they await the publication of the Saville Report the following day.

"The people of Derry have called on the British Government to ‘Set the truth free’; so let all of us join with them in their demands by attending one of the following support demonstrations".
