This Friday leading Human Rights lawyer Gareth Peirce will launch Setting the Truth Free: The Inside Story of the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign in Bookmarks Bookshop, Bloomsbury, London, as part of events commemorating the 40th anniversary of Bloody Sunday.
Author, and Derry Journal journalist, Juileann Campbell, was not only the Press Officer for the Bloody Sunday Trust during the campaign and the publication of the Saville Inquiry, but is also the niece of Jackie Duddy, who was the first murder victim in Derry on 30th January 1972.
An intelligent and emotive inside account of the Bloody Sunday Justice Campaign, Setting the Truth Free records the personal stories of the campaigners, the relatives and the wounded themselves, right up to the Saville Report publication in June 2010.
“Setting the Truth Free is a wonderful book because it documents eloquently events that go to the heart of the struggle for justice and freedom…the inspiration is universal.” John Pilger
