Bloody Sunday Commemoration 2008 - panel Discussion

category derry | rights, freedoms and repression | event notice author Monday January 28, 2008 01:46author by grow - Bloody Sunday 2008 Report this post to the editors

Truth Against Lies:

7.30pm: Panel discussion "Truth Against Lies":
A panel discussion exploring the damage systematic lies can inflict upon the political sphere. Over recent years, the British government has been involved in political “window dressing”, trying to sell the normalisation of the six counties to the nationalist community.

In reality, the draconian powers to detain, remand and intern are all still on the statute books. These were among the critical issues that brought marchers out onto the streets on Bloody Sunday thirty six years ago and compelled them to struggle on in the wake of Widgery’s whitewash in defence of truth as a fundamental prerequisite for real democracy and political activism.

This event will explore these issues as well as specific instances of continuing RUC/PSNI political policing, focusing in particular on the recent case of Sean Hoey which exposed how readily senior RUC/PSNI officers will resort to lying in order to frame those they suspect of republican sympathies.

Chaired by Paul O’Connor ,
with speakers including:
Tony Catney, Former Republican Prisoner RNU,
Marian Price (32SCM) and Eamonn McCann.
Organised by the Republican Network for Unity (RNU).

Venue: The Gasyard Centre, Lecky Road, Brandywell
