The Irish American Heritage Museum and the LAOH JFK Division 1 are co-hosting the launch of the book Counterinsurgency and Collusion in Northern Ireland by Mark McGovern, PhD on Monday June 10th at 7PM in the Museum.
Dr. McGovern's book focuses on the end game policy of collusion in the Mid-Ulster area, when Republicans and their families were targeted by Loyalist paramilitaries and criminals acting in concert with British State forces. It is the result of years of working with Relatives for Justice (RFJ) interviewing the bereaved and injured, and intensive research into collusion as a state policy.
Also attending the book launch will be Mark Thompson, human rights attorney and founder of Relatives for Justice. RJF was founded in 1991 and is an Northern Ireland based human rights NGO providing holistic support services to the bereaved and injured of the Troubles.
