Ballymuphy Massacre verdict by announcing plans to amnesty its troop and renege on the Stormont House, Agreement then appointed Trevor Ringland as a special envoy to America. Now view on You Tube
"On July 9th 1972, only eleven months after the Ballymurphy Massacre, British troopers murdered five people including Catholic priest Fr. Noel Fitzpatrick, Paul Butler, Margaret Gargan 13, John Dougal 16, and David McCafferty 16, in the Springhill-Westrock Massacre. Jacqueline Butler, the daughter of Paul Butler, will talk about their battle for truth 49 years later.
Stephen Travers was a member of the ‘Miami Showband’, returning from a performance when they were flagged by what seemed a routine British army checkpoint near Newry. They were ordered to stand by the road with their hands on their heads, while the uniformed men checked their van. Two of the uniformed men – later revealed as members of the Ulster Defense Regiment – were planting a bomb under the driver’s seat when it exploded, killing both of them. The others opened fire, killing bandsmen Fran O’Toole, Brian McCoy, and Tony Geraghty. Stephen Travers will explain why he is suing the British Ministry of Defense and PSNI Constabulary Chief Constable to lean the truth about British state involvement.
Martin Mallon- a well known Republican in East Tyrone, will describe how his aunt Roseanne Mallon 76 was shot by loyalists using the same weapons used in 17 collusion murders including American citizen my friend Liam Ryan
These speakers are appealing to America and the AOH, because they believe that American pressure can stop Britain from closing down their chances for justice and the truth.
First held on Saturday, July 17th, at 11 AM Eastern time, 4 PM Irish time. Now watch on You Tube

Webinar: A Conversation with Geraldine Finucane
Saturday June 19 at 12:00 pm Eastern
Geraldine Finucane and her family have actively led a campaign in the UK for a full public inquiry into the February 12,1989 murder of her husband Pat Finucane. Over the years the family have pushed for answers, leading to multiple investigations. The results of these investigations has revealed evidence pointing to loyalist paramilitary collusion with British security forces. In 2012, PM David Cameron admitted that there were ‘shocking levels of collusion’ in the Pat Finucane Murder. https://www.theguardian.com/.../david-cameron-pat... While he issued a public apology, he denied the Finucane family’s request for a full public inquiry. The significance of this admission by Cameron served to reinforce the campaign. In 2019 the family took their case to the UK Supreme Court which issued a unanimous decision that in the murder of Pat Finucane the UK had failed to uphold Article 2 of the European Convention on Human Rights. Yet to date the family’s request for a full public inquiry have been denied by the British government. By challenging the delay and deny strategy of the state every step of the way Geraldine Finucane serves as an inspiration to all victims and their families. Later this year she will be presented with the 2021 LAOH-AOH Sean McBride Humanitarian Award for the work she has done to help and inspire so many victims seeking justice. On the webinar panel Geraldine will be joined by her daughter Kathleen Finucane and journalist Andree Murphy, Deputy Director at Relatives for Justice. Please join us on Saturday June 19 as we hear in her own words what this journey has been like for Geraldine and her family and what the next steps are in this campaign for justice.

“The Ballymurphy Massacre families will give a special webinar briefing on the inquest verdicts in their fifty year fight for justice for 11 loved ones killed by British troopers, on Saturday May 15th.Campaign leader, John Teggart, will be joined by two other Massacre victims' relatives Briege Voyle and Carmel Quinn, as well as solicitor Paddy Murray. The Ancient Order of Hibernians (AOH) will host the live zoom webinar briefing, beginning at 11am Eastern Time and 4pm Irish time, with Hibernians, Irish leaders and members of other Irish organizations across the United States joining live.
“Since August 1971 the Ballymurphy Massacre families maintained that 11 people, including Catholic priest Fr. Hugh Mullan, and mother of 8 children Joan Connolly were murdered over a three day period by British troopers. The British government justified each killing and exonerated its troopers with legal excuses that made each of the victims guilty. On May 11th, Justice Siobhan Keegan will publish her verdicts and findings about the ten victims who were shot, while an eleventh victim, Paddy McCarthy, died of a heart attack caused by being brutalized.
“This May 15th briefing, arranged for family members to give their feelings about the verdicts, will now include their firsthand reaction to rumored amnesty or legacy whitewash proposals, timed to be announced on the same day in the British Queen’s speech. Irish leaders and members of Irish-American organizations including the, Irish American Unity Conference, Brehons, Irish Northern Aid and Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians have been invited to join and respond to the Massacre verdicts and any announced British amnesty, or legacy whitewash proposals.
