WSM takes part in 2017 Bloody Sunday march in Derry

Date:

Several thousand people took part in todays annual Bloody Sunday March for Justice in Derry marking the 45th anniversary which made its way from the Creggan to Bogside along the original route of the initial Civil Rights demonstration in 1972 at which 14 unarmed innocent civilians were murdered by British Paratroopers.

Each year Human rights, social justice and prisoner support groups made up the bulk of the commemoration and in keeping with its non-party political policy this years main speaker was Sheila Coleman of the Hillsborough Justice Campaign. Several campaigns took place of prominence on today's march to highlight their ongoing struggle for justice which included the Tony Taylor campaign, local republican currently interned by the British State as well as Abortion Rights campaigns North and South of the border. Workers Solidarity Movement in Derry were joined by anarchists from Belfast, Dublin and beyond.

Thanks to everyone who attended this important event, those who introduced themselves, and everyone who travelled to show their support and solidarity with the March for Justice.
