Gerry Adams to launch Wear a Black Ribbon for Truth campaign

7 August, 2007

Sinn Féin President Gerry Adams MP MLA will launch the Black Ribbon campaign today, at 12.15, Tuesday 7th August, in the party's Sevastopol Street offices on the Falls Road, Belfast.

The 'wear a Black Ribbon campaign' is to highlight the August 12th March for Truth.

The objective of the march is to draw attention to the major issue of collusion and British state violence, and the administrative and institutional cover-up by the British government and its state agencies, of a policy which resulted in many thousands of victims who were killed or injured or bereaved.

Sinn Fein President Gerry Adams is urging people to come out in their thousands in support of the many families who are campaigning for Truth. He is also asking everyone to wear on the day of the march and rally a black ribbon in solidarity with their families.
