The Bloody Sunday March Committee and a small group of supporters launch the announcement-mural on the back of Free Derry Corner.

The launch of the mural kicks off a week of events.

Speaking on behalf of the Committee Jim Keys said:
“The inscription on the Bloody Sunday Monument says. ‘Their epitaph is in the continuing struggle for democracy’. The march and associated events have been put together in the spirit of that struggle.”

“The events include screenings of three films. ‘Sunday‘, about Bloody Sunday itself as well as Battle of Ogreave and Hillsborough each shedding light on the respective campaigns in which they are rooted. There is also a powerful new drama by Donal O’Kelly on the machinations of Shell’s corporate occupation of North Mayo.”

“The two discussion forums have an impressive lineup of speakers, including lawyer Gareth Peirce, and Civil Rights campaigner, Bernadette McAliskey to name but two. And of course we are delighted that Bernadette is speaking at the rally.”

Details of all events are in the Programme section of this site.
