FAIR step up campaign for justice.

Ever since the Libyan Government agreed to pay compensation to the families of those killed in the Lockerbie bombing there have been calls for similar compensation to be paid to the victims of IRA violence carried out using weapons supplied by the Gaddafi regime.

The calls for compensation have not been heeded, but the FAIR group based in Markethill have now launched a new petition which is being carried in the Newsletter calling for an apology from the Libyan Government.The article on the FAIR site states that the campaign has the backing of families of those killed in the 9/11 attacks and outlines previous attempts made by FAIR to meet with Colonel Gaddafi. Because the majority of IRA killings were carried out using Lybian weapons the group has been trying, for some time, to gather publicity and support for this campaign.
