March for Truth
Between 9th and 11th of August 1971, over 600 British soldiers entered the Ballymurphy area of West Belfast, raiding homes and rounding up men. Many, both young and old, were shot and beaten as they were dragged from their homes without reason. During this 3-day period 11 people were brutally murdered.
All 11 unarmed civilians were murdered by the British Army’s Parachute Regiment. One of the victims was a well-known parish priest and another was a 45-year-old mother of eight children. No investigations were carried out and no member of the British Army was held to account.
The Ballymurphy Massacre Families invite you to join them on their annual March of Truth. Families who have been victims of state violence are especially invited. The Families ask you for your support and to come along with friends and family. Binlids and whistles are encouraged.
