Take Action against the British Legacy Bill
Launch an inter-state complaint against the United Kingdom to stop the disgraceful Legacy Bill
Why is this important?
The Legacy Bill passed in Westminster includes a form of immunity for some perpetrators of crimes committed during the Northern Ireland Troubles and prevents future civil cases and inquests into legacy offences.
Families bereaved in Northern Ireland through the conflict have suffered from their loss and the pain of getting justice for decades. For many, this will close the door on that forever. All victims groups, all political parties and international human rights bodies vigorously oppose this law. The only way to stop it now is for the Irish government to take an Inter-state complaint against the UK on the Legacy Bill.
