Sinn Féin challenge Ulster University decision to remove collusion display

2 February, 2005

Sinn Fein MLA Michael Ferguson and Party Spokesperson for Higher Education has challenged the University of Ulster's decision to request that the 1 day Collusion Display be taken down from the University.

The Display, which has been in the Assembly Long Gallery, QUB and other institutes, shows the impact Collusion has had on the victims through poster, photographs and oral video interviews.

Commenting upon the situation Michael Ferguson said:

" I will be speaking with the UU Administration to ascertain why they are objecting to this display given that it was agreed through the Student Council to show it.

"This is a Display, which conveys the impact of Collusion, the greatest untold story of the conflict, and a display, which we showed at the Assembly and other Higher Educational institutions including QUB.

"It would be insulting to the relatives for the UU to deny them the opportunity to highlight the need for the Truth and it also undermines the integrity of the Student Council who agreed to the display." ENDS
