Bloody Sunday, or the Bogside Massacre, was an incident on 30 January 1972 in the Bogside area of Derry, when British soldiers shot 28 unarmed civilians during a protest march against internment. 

An Army veteran, known as Soldier F, is to be prosecuted for the murder of two men on Bloody Sunday in 1972.

The Saville Inquiry stated that there was "no doubt" Soldier F had shot father-of-six Paddy Doherty, who was unarmed.

Saville also found there was "no doubt" Soldier F had shot an unarmed Bernard McGuigan on Bloody Sunday as he went to the aid of Patrick Doherty, waving a white handkerchief.

At the Saville Inquiry, Soldier F admitted he had shot 17-year-old Michael Kelly - but he said that he had only fired at people with bombs or weapons. However, Saville concluded Mr Kelly was unarmed.

A banner has been put up on the way into Lurgan that reads “Lurgan stands with soldier F”

Please sign this petition to ensure this banner is taken down and to show that Lurgan does not support Soldier F or the killing of unarmed citizens.
