Martina Anderson MEP announces Hearing in the European Parliament in Brussels on Tuesday January 28th, entitled "Britain's War In Ireland".
“This will be part of the schedule for the delegation I am hosting of relatives bereaved due to British State actions and also representatives of organisations campaigning on their behalf. These organisations include "Justice for the Forgotten" (concerning justice for the victims of the Dublin-Monaghan Bombings), the "Pat Finucane Centre for Human Rights" and "Relatives for Justice."
At this hearing relatives and campaigners will outline their experiences and explore the policies behind British actions and their collusion with unionist gangs.
Journalist Anne Cadwallader whose recent book "Deadly Allies" brought more, new information into the public domain on Britain 's dirty war in Ireland, will be speaking about her research. Ms Cadwallader has worked for RTÉ, the BBC, The Irish Press, Independent Network News and Reuters, spending a large part of her time reporting from the North. She is currently working as an investigator and case worker with the Pat Finucane Centre.
At a time when the political parties in the North of Ireland are discussing how to deal with the legacy of our troubled past it is important to ensure that Britain’s role in the conflict and its consequences are not ignored.
Britain has used every means possible to hide information, obstruct enquires and protect their military personnel from prosecution for their role in the killings carried out by the State forces and for their collusion with pro-British unionist murder gangs.
The meeting will take place in ASP 1 C 047 at 9am-10.30am Tuesday 28th January.
