Collusion campaigners travel to British Conference

1 October, 2004


An Fhirinne, the campaign group made up of families of those killed through British State murder in Ireland are this weekend taking part in a major Human Rights conference in Exeter in England. Two members of the group Sharon Pickering and Mark Sykes will speak at the weekend event.

Speaking from Exeter Mark Sykes who was seriously injured in the Sean Graham Bookies shooting said:

" This weekend campaigners from a wide range of human rights causes are coming together in Exeter. These include those campaigning for justice for the family of Steven Lawrence. This will provide another opportunity from An Fhirinne campaigners to bring our campaign for the truth about collusion into the heart of the British system.

" Over the next number of weeks An Fhirinne will be intensifying our lobbying and will be travelling to Brussels to meet with MEPs as we seek to ensure that the British government end their campaign of concealment and come clean on their involvement in a campaign of state sanctioned murder." ENDS
