Families speak to the European parliament

A delegation from An Fhirinne, an organisation for the families who’s relatives were killed as a result of alleged collusion between British security forces and loyalist paramilitaries addressed the European parliament. However, both Unionist MEPs were keen to highlight the low numbers attending a ‘hearing’ recently in Brussels. Remarkable mostly for the degree of unanimity between the two parties.
