Ballymurphy March for Truth
THE families of 11 people killed by British paratroopers in the nationalist Ballymurphy area of west Belfast in August 1971 continue to draw attention to their campaign for truth.
A march organised by the families and attended by up to 2,000 people took place on Sunday 12 August and drew support from other campaign groups who are themselves highlighting their quest for justice.
Among those to show support for the Ballymurphy campaign were the relatives of the 14 people shot dead by British paratroopers in Derry on Bloody Sunday, the families of those killed in the Springhill shootings in 1972 (also carried out by the Parachute Regiment), and the families of 6 men shot dead by a UVF death squad in Loughinisland in 2004.
