10.30am – 3.00pm Workshop, A Truth Commission for Ireland?
Five groups who represent victims’ families across Ireland have come together to call for an independent truth commission that deals with the human rights abuses associated with the conflict in each jurisdiction. In this workshop an outline model for a truth commission that the groups have developed will be discussed. There will be an open debate where families will get the opportunity to express their ideas, ask questions and raise concerns about a truth commission.

All the views expressed will help to develop a families-driven model for seeking the truth.

1.00 – 3.00pm Panel Discussion, "Judging Saville”

Venue: Main Hall, Pilots Row Community Centre, Rossville Street, Derry

3.30pm – 5.00pm Public Testimony Event,
Ballymurphy August 1971 – How Bloody Sunday January 1972 could have been avoided
On 9th August 1971 internment without trial was introduced. Over the following three days 11 innocent civilians, including a Catholic priest and a mother of 8, were murdered by the Parachute Regiment in the Ballymurphy area of West Belfast.

At this event these terrible days will be recounted by eyewitnesses, and those murdered will be remembered truthfully and accurately by their families. The event will also clearly demonstrate the links between the actions and personnel of the Parachute Regiment in August in Ballymurphy and in Derry on Bloody Sunday the following January. The families will make the case that had the killings of their loved ones been properly addressed in 1971, 14 innocent lives could have been spared the following January.

This event is organised by Relatives for Justice in co-operation with the Pat Finucane Centre.
Venue: Main Hall, Pilots Row Community Centre, Rossville Street, Derry
