RT/Moscow: Motorcyclists from all across the UK drove on to Parliament Square in London, on Friday, to show solidarity with anonymous British army veteran ‘Soldier F’, who is charged with two murders after opening fire on civil rights protesters in Northern Ireland in 1972, during an event known as Bloody Sunday.

Roy Brinkley, founder of Justice for Northern Ireland Veterans, said, “all prosecutions from both sides, we’re looking at everything to stop. Draw a line under it, it doesn’t need to go on anymore. It’s 40 years ago.” “Nobody from the IRA is getting chased down. But they are chasing our veterans down, and this needs to be stopped now,” he added.

The events of Bloody Sunday took place on January 30, 1972 in Derry, when British soldiers, including ‘Soldier F’, killed 14 unarmed civilians during a civil rights protest. Only ‘Soldier F’ has been charged, however, while 16 other former paratroopers and two former members of the IRA will face no action due to insufficient evidence of wrongdoing.

  1. Back then, who gave the order to change the route of protestors march out from townhall? That’s a direct provocation for protestors to make them pissed. Did they think that IRA was present and would thereby act? Anyhow, if EU sent (nonexistent) special troops to monitor Brexit supporters march and opened fire, I bet those bikers didn’t mind if criminals were sent behind bars. Brits delayed the case themselves for 40 years.
