9 year old,Daniel Rooney was shot dead in Divis flats 50 years ago this weekend, in August 1969.
If you read any of the articles on the subject, you will find they are all trying to re-write history by claiming the RUC were firing the machine guns for no reason.
In fact, the police were firing up at Divis flats because a gunman was shooting from the top of the flats at the police and loyalists.
The news archive below gives some information about the incident toward the end of the video. It goes on to say on man was found dead on the top of the flats and he was a “soldier” who was home on compassionate leave.
They do not tell the whole story however, they refuse to give out the information he was a soldier in the Southern Irish army!
There are still far too many Unionists around who remember the events of August 1969 to let this latest attempt at re-writing history get off the ground.
What the situation will be like in 15-20 years when a huge number of Unionist eye witness`s to all these events have passed away is very questionable. A huge number of young people from the Unionist community at the present time, will swallow any lie given to them.
I thought there would be a lot of articles this weekend about August 1969 and the introduction of the British army to the streets.
It is the duty of fathers to make sure young people are given the true view of history.
Deuteronomy 32:7 Remember the days of old, consider the years of many generations: ask thy father, and he will shew thee; thy elders, and they will tell thee.
