7.00pm Launch, (Photographic exhibition) ‘Reflections on Internment’ Ballymurphy, Belfast 1971

Internment without trial was introduced by the British government on 9th August 1971. During the first three days of internment 26 people were killed across the North of Ireland. Eleven unarmed civilians were murdered in the Ballymurphy community of West Belfast by the Parachute regiment. This same regiment went on to Derry where the following January it murdered 14 unarmed civilians on Bloody Sunday.

There has never been a statement of acknowledgement from the British army or government for these murders. Indeed the official version of the events remains intact – the British military statement claims that they had shot gun-men and gun-women.

Despite overwhelming eyewitness and forensic evidence not one British soldier was held to account, nor has there been an official retraction of the lies.

This exhibition remembers those who died through the eyes of those left behind, who will always remember them – the families and the Ballymurphy community.

Venue: Museum of Free Derry, Glenfada Park, Derry

Full details of all these events are available on the Bloody Sunday Programme page for Thursday, linked to below.
