Robert has said recently :-
“After her husband’s death, my grandmother spent the rest of her life quietly campaigning to establish the truth about the McGurk’s bombing. My sister, Mary, was also determined to expose the lies. After they passed away it seemed only right to take up the campaign myself.”

Secretary of the Troops Out Movement, Mary Pearson said:
“The British Government demands human rights, truth and justice from governments in Zimbabwe, Iran and China, yet is very reticent to tell the truth about its own atrocities and infringements of human rights. Serious allegations go un-investigated, truth remains concealed and those responsible are not held publicly accountable.

We are often asked what this has this to do with the people of England? The fact is we paid the wages of those responsible for the atrocities and their aftermath. There will never be a true and lasting peace in Ireland whilst the resentment of injustice festers. People in Ireland have often said to me, “We don’t want revenge and vengeance, we want truth and justice”. Truth costs nothing – collusion and cover-ups cost millions!”
