Mr Eastwood raised the issue with the Secretary of State Brandon Lewis in the House of Commons at Northern Ireland Questions today.
Said the Foyle MP: “50 years ago this week, the Parachute Regiment were sent onto the streets of Derry where they murdered 14 people.
“They were unarmed, they posed no threat and they were marching for civil rights.
“Last week Parachute Regiment flags were erected on the outskirts of our city in a deliberate attempt to cause hurt and pain to the families of those who were murdered.
“The British Army rightly condemned the flying of those flags as a grossly offensive act against the victims of Bloody Sunday.
“They have yet to apologise and condemn the actions of their soldiers in Derry on Bloody Sunday in 1972.
“It is far beyond time they acknowledge what those soldiers did, the immense pain they have caused to families and the indelible mark it has left on our city.
“50 years on from that act of unspeakable evil, our city stands with the Bloody Sunday families and the families of all those continuing to seek truth, justice and accountability for what happened to their loved ones.”Tags:
