Ferguson pastor, Rev. Sekou Osagyeyfo, to address Bloody Sunday march

by Staff Reporter

14 January 2015

US pastor, Rev. Sekou Osagyeyfo, will speak in Londonderry this month about the killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, last year.

Rev. Osagyeyfo will also address the annual Bloody Sunday march at Guildhall Square, the organisers announced on Wednesday (January 14).

Ex-Bagram and Guantánamo internee Moazzam Begg will also participate in a wide programme of events that will take place between January 22 and February 1.

According to the organisers: “This year’s theme is ‘Resist’ and the programme will reflect the resistance to continued attacks on civil rights and liberties whether in Ferguson, USA, Palestine, Dublin, Belfast or indeed here in Derry itself.

“The programme for 2015 will continue the tradition of acting as an inclusive platform for the seemingly disparate ongoing campaigns concerning the people of these islands and beyond.

“As in previous years it is a time to join together, make connections and raise our voices in solidarity.”

The programme is as follows:
