Setting the Truth Free: The Inside Story of the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign

by Julieann Campbell
£12.99   paperback  Liberties Press (2012)

Setting the Truth Free: The Inside Story of the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign by Julieann Campbell An intelligent and emotive inside account of the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign, which records the personal stories of the campaigners, the relatives and the wounded themselves right up to the Saville Report’s publication in June 2010. Written by Derry journalist and niece of Jackie Duddy who was killed on that day, with a foreword by political activist Gareth Peirce, Setting the Truth Free is published to coincide with the 40th anniversary of Bloody Sunday on Monday 30 January, 2012.
 
On 30th January 1972 thirteen people were shot dead and a further fourteen wounded, one of whom died later, by British paratroopers during a peaceful civil rights march in Derry. In June 2010, thirty-eight years later, Lord Saville’s report made headlines all over the world, and the people of Derry were brought to a stunned silence as British Prime Minister David Cameron apologised on behalf of his government and his country for the ‘unjustified’ and ‘unjustifiable’ acts of Bloody Sunday.
 
Setting the Truth Free is the first ever account of the remarkable Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign as told by the campaigners, relatives and the wounded themselves. Many books have been written on the subject but few mention in significant detail how these ordinary people achieved the impossible and unwittingly made history. Determined to clear their loved ones’ names, this group took on the might of the British government, and won. Each major turning point during the campaign is described and accompanied by family testimonies.
