British soldier prosecuted for the shot during the Bloody Sunday

Close to half a century has passed, but in Londonderry (which by the catholics in the city just called ”Derry”) in northern Ireland, the memory is still painfully clear of that fateful januaridagen.

" If there be justice for a family, done it justice for all of us. But it may be enough with the filibusters now, those in the government who tried to influence the judicial process should themselves be brought to justice, said the relatives ' spokesperson John Kelly after Thursday's announcement.

He said it sammanbitet, well aware as he was that the soldier, known as the ”Soldier F” that is now to be prosecuted, just tried for two of the 14 killings.

the Other 16 soldiers freed completely, as well as two suspected IRA men. ”Insufficient evidence” indicated as the reason.

so big symbolladdning in the conflict between the republicans (most of whom are catholics) and unionists (most protestants) in northern Ireland as ”bloody Sunday”.

Three years of unrest had been raging against the british rule. The british military had been deployed to keep the [rebellion the rod.

But Sunday, 30 January 1972 cancelled everything.

A large, peaceful demonstration was met by the military, who blocked the way. Some stones were thrown and abuse shouted. A group of soldiers advanced towards the demonstrators and began to shoot sharp shots.

there was the 31-year-old sexbarnspappan Patrick ”Paddy” Doherty. He was shot in the back when he tried to crawl away. The pictures show that he was completely unarmed.

When the photographer Nicklas Thegerström and I visited Londonderry recently, we met with Paddy's grandchildren Rossa O'Dochartaigh, who works as a guide at a museum, established on the incident.

Rossa O'Dochartaigh know, like all the others in Londonderry, Bloody Sunday was perhaps the most important reason for the IRA (Irish republican army) grew strong.

today, he hopes that education will reduce the gap between catholics and protestants, which still is great despite the peace agreement of 1998.

" People are being forced to learn our history again from scratch. Savillerapporten who came in 2010 and former british prime minister David Cameron's formal apology has helped us to lift the fog surrounding what happened here, "says Rossa O'Dochartaigh.

now once again in danger. This time on the basis of Brexit.

Armed groups as the ”New IRA” has emerged and begun to detonate small bombs. The radical republican parties as Saoradh seems at the same time have received a boost.

But the technology is not fully developed, and there is a controversy about it at all will work.

most of The peace activists are convinced that the new, physical gränsinstallationer would soon become the targets of both bombings like gunfire. Then would the officers and soldiers will soon be in place – and then, nobody knows what can happen.

such an escalation of the so-called reservplanen (”backstop”) in the agreement that the Uk and the EU negotiated – and which the british parliament now voted against twice.

Reservplanen means that unless the technological solutions are in place when the transitional period is over, to the Uk temporarily to conclude a customs union with the EU, at the same time as northern Ireland continues to respect a part of the internal market rules.

the Reason is simple: that the limit to each price to remain open.

This proceeding is not of the government of northern ireland, northern ireland, to some extent due DUP, and not of the radical ”brexitörer” in the Tories who fear that the british can then be ”caught” in a perpetual customs union with the EU. Where are we now – in a limit where the Brexit seems to have stuck.
