47 Years of Determination and Dignity

    On behalf of Sinn Féin I want to pay tribute to the Bloody Sunday families whose long, painful campaign for truth and justice has led us to this day.

    Their determination and dignity over the past 47 years has been remarkable and an inspiration to many others who seek justice around the globe.

    We share the disappointment of the families and the sense of incredulity that only one former soldier has been charged with two counts of murder and four attempted murders, given the clearly established facts about the actions of the British Army on Bloody Sunday.
