Belfast Féile and the Ballymurphy Campaigners have given me a great honour: they have kindly asked me to attend and present at an event that they have organized tomorrow: Shared Experience and Dealing With the Past.
Also represented with be the families of those killed in the Shankill Bombing and the New Lodge 6. Victims’ groups, VAST and WAVE will present too. Word has it that former seerving British soldiers will be in attendace to assure that their voice and experience is heard as well.
Following the presentations, the audience will have the chance to ask us questions and share their own experiences. After light refreshments we will re-convene and facilitate work-shops to see what we can learn from each other.
Please feel free to come along and share your story too. Details are below:
