Why we can’t participate in this years Feile an phobail


Over the past few years, the JFTC2 campaign Committee has organised an annual seminar as part of the West Belfast feile an phobail. The purpose of this has been to provide contemporary information on our quest for justice. It has also afforded an opportunity to highlight other campaigns and groups such as ‘Joint Enterprise’ – not guilty by association who we partnered with last year before their much publicised victory in the Supreme court in England.

Despite the success of this event in previous years, regretfully we feel it impossible to continue this tradition. We believe the continued attendance of, and prominence afforded to the PSNI serves to sanitise that organisation and it’s role in our miscarriage of justice. The part they (PSNI) have played in manipulating witnesses and sabotaging legal processes as well as the targeting of our legal representatives, is well documented. We will not share in the pretence that the PSNI are a force for good when they have offered us and our families nothing but hurt.

We thank all those who have supported us in the past and we hope they will understand the position we have adopted.
