The families of 11 innocent civilians shot by members of the British Parachute Regiment in August 1971 are calling for the local community to come out and support them tomorrow Sunday for their annual Ballymurphy Massacre March tomorrow 10th August.
Earlier this year British Secretary of State for Northern Ireland Teresa Villiers, told Families that it wasn’t IN THE PUBLIC INTEREST to grant an independent panel headed by Nuala O’loan. Speaking today John Teggart who’s father Danny Teggart was shot 14 times has said this year marks the 43rd anniversary of my fathers death.
I would like to call on the community to come out and march in solidarity with us to show Teresa Villiers and the British Government that we are the PUBLIC and it’s in OUR INTEREST that our loved one’s murderers are properly investigated .Assemble 12 noon Springfield Park Belfast.
