Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Time for Truth message loud and clear - O’Neill

9 June, 2019 - by Michelle O'Neill

Speaking after attending today’s Time for Truth March Sinn Féin Leas Uachtarán Michelle O'Neill said:

“I was proud to march with the families here today demanding truth and justice.“Those attending today’s march did so with common cause. Did so to have their voices heard loud and clear that they demand access to truth and justice. “Some of these families have been campaigning for decades and the Ballymurphy families are only having an inquest 48 years on from the killings of their loved ones.“It is wrong and unacceptable that families have to take to the streets once again to get access to the truth five years after the two governments agreed legacy mechanisms at Stormont House.“Since then the British government has stalled and delayed the legislation to give effect to these mechanisms.“That stalling must end, the cover up on the British state’s role in the conflict must end.“The British government has a responsibility to implement the Stormont House Agreement, fund the legacy inquests and ensure the Police Ombudsman’s office has adequate resources.“The families of the victims deserve no less.”
