AMPLIACIÓN MURALES EXTREMA IZQUIERDA ( Irlanda del Norte)

Se ha incluido una nueva imágen en el álbum de MURALES IRLANDESES EN ZONA CATÓLICA REPUBLICANA Y NACIONALISTA.
La imágen hace referencia a los seis civiles católicos muertos en 1973 en New Logde por disparos del ejército británico.
Hay diferentes versiones de los hechos,puesto que el ejército habló de choque entre militares y miembros del IRA,pero familiares y vecinos de la zona contradicen la versión oficial,y hablan de asesinatos por parte de militares británicos y gente desarmada.

Incluimos un fragmento de la página en la que se habla de los hechos:

At 11.00pm on Saturday 3rd February 1973 occupants of a car from loyalist Tigers Bay opened fire with a machine gun at Lynch's Bar at the junction of the New Lodge Road and Antrim Road. Two men were killed, James Sloan and James McCann. The car continued down the Antrim Road and fire was directed at a Chinese restaurant injuring others. Eyewitnesses say that a British army Saracen was parked on the Antrim Road at the time but did nothing.

As local people gathered on the streets, after hearing the shooting, they came under a hail of gunfire from several positions. The British army were firing down from Duncairn Gardens down Edlingham Street and from the top of Templar and Alemein Flats, using their newly aquired 'nitesights' with deadly effect.

In the midst of this Tony Campbell was returning from a disco after celebrating his 19th birthday. He was shot dead by the British army at the junction of Edlingham Street and New Lodge Road. Brendan Maguire went to help him and was shot dead at the same spot. Then John Loughran came out of his house to help the injured. He too was shot dead and fell beside Tony Campbell and Brendan Maguire.

In the hail of gunfire, terrified people were taking shelter in doorways, under cars and in the old Circle Club. When there was a lull in the gunfire, Ambrose Hardy emerged from the doorway of the club holding a white cloth above his head. He was shot in the head by a British army sniper.

The British army and the British media reported a gun battle between the IRA and the British army. In fact the IRA only opened fire after the deaths in order to give cover to enable the dead and injured to be attended to.

These events were never properly investigated.

The Troops Out Movement join the 'Time for Truth' committee in calling on the British government to establish an inquiry into these killings.
