A poster, however ill-conceived, does not explain the current happenings in Derry — even if some of the detail might present issue. Issue enough to abandon the Nash girls, and with them the other Bloody Sunday families? I don’t know about that. Dark forces are at their work, rest assured. They’ve been at it for some time, as many have come to learn over the past couple of years.
Just to be clear and to save any confusion, given how things can be perceived or misconstrued. The above relates neither to Saoradh or the Tony Taylor Campaign. Indeed the only reason I mention both here, and not others, is because they issued communique in regards to the march. The issue is with those it seems have their ear — though, that said, a phone call on their part would perhaps have served better.
The bottom line, no matter, is that for 46 years those families have marched for justice, with Republicans by their side throughout. I will be with them this year again and hope that others will be also — it’s the least they deserve. No Brit agenda should be let carry the day, even if this time they have done their work well. Where is the brains? The Bloody Sunday march represents one of the few remaining barriers to the pacification of Ireland. We’d all do well to consider this.
