Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has welcomed relatives of those killed in the Ballymurphy massacre to the European Parliament in Brussels for a screening of ‘The Ballymurphy Precedent.’
Martina Anderson said:
“I was honoured to attend a screening of the powerful documentary film ‘The Ballymurphy Precedent’ in the European Parliament in Brussels today.
“I was particularly proud to welcome Irene and Breige Connolly, daughters of Joan Connolly, one of eleven people killed during the massacre in Ballymurphy in August 1971.
“I want to comment the courage and determination of all the relatives of those killed in the Ballymurphy massacre on their tireless campaign for truth and justice.
“At the present time I am particularly aware this is a difficult time for these families as they engage on a daily basis with the long awaited inquest into the murder of their loved ones.
“Sinn Féin will continue to support the Ballymurphy Families in their campaign for the truth about the deaths of their loved ones.” Ends/Críoch
