Stories of children killed in the Troubles to be told to MPs

The Guardian says RELATIVES AND FRIENDS of six children who died in Northern Ireland’s Troubles are to share their stories in a special presentation to MPs at Westminster.

They will relate testimonies in storytelling form about how the children were killed by the British army, the IRA and loyalist paramilitaries between 1971 and 1981.

Performers who also experienced trauma during the Troubles will support the relatives’ narration in a committee room at Portcullis House, part of the parliamentary estate, on Tuesday 28 June.

MPs from across the political spectrum in Britain and Northern Ireland are expected to attend. The event has been organised by the Playhouse, an arts centre in Derry, and Jo Egan, a writer who conducted interviews and edited the testimonies.
