The families of the Time for Truth Campaign are asking you to join them to protest Britain’s Bill of Shame.
On Tuesday 24th May, the British House of Commons will hold a second reading of the Tory’s Bill of Shame – creeping, pernicious legislation it calls Legacy and Reconciliation Bill even though it is anti-victim and pro-perpetrator.
To coincide with the second reading of the Bill of Shame, the families of the Time for Truth Campaign are mobilizing to protest in Derry and Belfast. The families are joining campaigners such as the Ballymurphy, McGurk’s Bar, and Springhill/Westrock Massacre families; and NGOs including Pat Finucane Centre and Relatives for Justice.
Time for Truth Campaign urges families bereaved as a result of the conflict to join with us all and bring a photograph of their loved ones.
- Date/Time: 1pm, Tuesday 24th May 2022
- Where: (1) Belfast, Erskine House – NIO Offices – corner of Arthur Street and Chichester Street (map); (2) Derry, Guildhall Square (map)
Ciarán MacAirt, spokesperson for the Time for Truth Campaign, said:
“The British Government’s unending abuse and gaslighting of victims and survivors of the conflict have been particularly bitter and twisted over the last few years. Nevertheless, its unilateral decision to bin the Stormont House Agreement and legislate its Bill of Shame would embarrass tin-pot dictatorships over the last century.”
“We know, of course, that the Tories under Boris Johnson and Brandon Lewis have no shame, though. All the Tories care about are burying Britain’s war crimes in Ireland and protecting its killers.”
