A press release from Mairead & Roisin Kelly 0n behalf of The Loughgall Truth & Justice Campaign.
Two flags bearing the emblem of the SAS have been erected at Loughgall at the site of the killings of nine men in 1987 by the SAS. This has become a yearly occurrence.
The families of the men are calling for the immediate removal of these flags as they are offensive, disrespectful and a mark of triumphalism. Someone needs to be held accountable for this action and charged with hate crime.
This is a sustained campaign against the families of the nine men killed at Loughgall. No one should glorify or mock the deaths of anyone regardless of who that person was or what that person was doing at the time of their death. This causes stress and unnecessary grief to families who are already grieving the death of their loved ones.
