Deputy Smith who will lay a wreath on behalf of Labour Party members at a Bloody Sunday memorial on Rossville Street in the Bogside, Derry at 11am said:
“Today marks the 50th anniversary of one of the darkest days in the history of our island. The Labour Party stands in solidarity with the Bloody Sunday families as we remember all the people murdered and maimed of that terrible day. The appalling events of Bloody Sunday should never have happened and changed the course of the conflict on our island.
Despite years of inaction by the British Government the journey to justice has never relented and campaigners never lost hope.
The strength and determination of families to get truth and justice for their loved ones has been an inspiration to many on this island and around the world. As our nation this weekend pauses, mourns, and reflects, the Labour Party reaffirms our commitment to support the families of Bloody Sunday and honouring the memory of their loved ones by strengthening our civil rights and advancing a lasting and inclusive peace so hard won on our island.”
