Campaigning for British Withdrawal from Ireland
Annual Delegation to Belfast
Thurs 5th – Sun 8th August 2010
This year’s visit will take place three months after the UK General Election and amid continued armed action from anti-agreement republicans. Five thousand British troops remain in Ireland; policing powers have been transferred to the Stormont Assembly; the Saville Inquiry Report into Bloody Sunday has been delayed; other inquiries are slow and tedious and there is no progress on the issue of collusion.
Our visit is a unique opportunity to observe, at first hand, the reality of life in Belfast and hear, free from media interference, the views of people directly affected.
You will have chance to:-
- Attend political talks / discussion workshops
- Visit community groups
- Join in the West Belfast Community Festival
