 Sinn Féin MEP launches postcards highlighting British state collusion

7 August, 2006

Sinn Féin MEP Bairbre de Brún has this morning launched a range of postcards highlighting the policy of British state collusion in the Six Counties. The event was organised by Relatives For Justice (RFJ).

Speaking after this morning’s event Ms de Brún said that the launch was ‘a novel way for Relatives for Justice to raise serious issues of British state violence and collusion during the course of the conflict’.

Speaking today Ms de Brún said:

“Many people know Relatives for Justice for their community development and cross community work with those who have been injured and bereaved as a result of the conflict.  RFJ also carry out campaigning work and highlight issues related to the role of the state in conflict.

“For decades the British government have denied their role in the murder of Irish citizens and to this day they deny attempts to cover up their involvement in collusion. One of the four postcards also highlights the role of MI5.  It is a way for relatives for Justice to express concerns about the proposed future role of MI5 in policing and intelligence gathering here.” ENDS

The Postcards are a ‘not for profit’ venture and will be on sale from the Sinn Féin Art Shop and various outlets across Ireland.
