Petition Closed

Ballymurphy Massacre Families would like to restate their position on dealing with the deaths of 11 Innocent victims in august 1971. The only mechanism acceptable by the campaign group is an Independent International Investigation which looks at causes,context, and consquences, of the massacre. Any story telling or H.E.T. type process is not good enough... 1. Independent international investigation examining the circumstances surrounding all of the deaths

2. The British government to issue a statement of innocence

3. The British government to issue a public apology

British Prime Minister, British Government:
Please Stop Ignoring the families of the victims of The Ballmurphy Massacre

This past year 2011-2012 is the 40th anniversary of the Ballymurphy massacre, A year when last January the torch was handed over from the bloody Sunday families to the Ballymurphy families.
A year where we sat in Washington in America for congresional Hearing shaming the British Goverment as we told of the war crimes carried out in our streets in August 1971.
A year where in august alone we held over a dozen events to mark our loved ones anniversary's including the Aisling award winning play Ballymurphy the Aftermath which showed vivid and shocking accounts brought to life on stage of what happened here 40 yrs ago.
we also held our annual march of Truth where people from all of Ireland ,UK,Germany, Basque country and America marched supporting our campaign for Truth.
We now have the support of the catholic church, the Irish government , sinn fein ,sdlp ,members of alliance party and also members of the US Congress endorsing our campaign.
In December we had representatives in dublin, stormount,london ,brussels and washington reminding them that we are still here and wont be going away until we get an international independant invesigation and a declaration of innocents
the announcement by the Attorney General John Larkin that inquests are to reopen into the deaths of 10 of the 11 people killed in the Ballymurphy Massacre of August 1971 is to be welcomed.

The families regarded the re-opening of the inquests as a very important step on our journey for truth. But even a fully resourced and effective inquest will have limitations. It will be able to provide facts and gather crucial forensic, logistical and witness testimony evidence, but it will not be able to examines the causes, context and consequences of the Massacre and answer so many of the questions that must be answered. We believe that only an International and Independent Investigation can facilitate the discovery of the facts and provide an accurate historical account of the events of August 1971 on the streets of Ballymurphy
