We've just found that this may not have gone out to everyone on
the list - apologies if you are receiving this twice.

Well-known rights lawyer Rosemary Nelson was murdered in a loyalist
car bomb Monday in Lurgan. Ms. Nelson represented the family of
Robert Hamill (beaten by a loyalist gang in Portadown and later died)
and the Garvaghy Road community, among others. She worked tirelessly
and courageously for justice in the six counties despite numerous
threats and obstacles. Ms. Nelson leaves behind a husband and three
young children.

This latest sickening outrage must not be allowed to be swept under
the rug by the British authorities, as the Pat Finucane murder of
1989 was and still is. Those responsible MUST be brought to justice,
and the British government and its forces held accountable for their
lack of action, knowing as they did of the threats against Ms.
Nelson's life.

We are organizing an internet memorial protest campaign, and calling
on all Webmasters to participate. We will be creating a 'blackout'
page with background information and protest instructions, and we are
asking participating Webmasters to use this page in place of their
usual index page for 48 hours beginning March 17 - St. Patrick's

It is vital that we get the widest participation possible and send a
clear and strong message to the British, Irish, and US governments
(as well as media outlets) that these murders and abuses must stop,
unionist intransigence must stop, harrassment and intimidation must
stop, and collusion and coverups must stop. Rosemary Nelson's work
can and must go on.

If you do NOT wish to receive any further emails about this campaign,
please drop a note to us and we will remove your name from the
distribution list.

If you would like to take part in the blackout, please let us know
immediately and the page and instructions will be forwarded to you as
soon as they are available (later this evening).

Please pass the word along to any interested parties you may know of.
