Sunday 4 August, A gathering at Giuseppe Conlon Hall, Harringay, London

Last Sunday, we gathered at Giuseppe Conlon venue, as the sentencing phase for Bradley continues at NSA HQ, Ft. Meade,

Maryland, USA. We named our venue after Giuseppe Conlon who left his native Belfast for London as “an act of mercy” to visit
his son Gerry who had been fitted up, tortured and jailed. A similar fate was to meet Giuseppe and his in-laws the Maguires
who offered him for a bed for the night.

Giuseppe was to die in a British jail framed, libelled, tortured. Not even in death was he left alone as his body was flown back and forth
over the Irish Sea and stashed at Hereford before eventually being laid to rest. The Maguires too, who were also innocent, suffered long
years in British prisons. More on the Guildford Four and Maguire Seven here.

Death penalty for the “acts of mercy”: from Wormwood Scrubs to the school run in Baghdad.

On occasion, torture and death at the hands of empire remain a consequence for those practising the “acts of mercy”. Reflect on the slain father
with his children coming on the scene of the Collateral Murder massacre.

The Iraqi father refuses to do what we have done during these long wars. He refuses to avert his gaze. He parks his van and goes to tend to the
wounded. He is slain, his children are critically wounded. But even in the Collateral Murder footage there is hope, evidence of the human in the
form of Ethan McCord who refuses orders and rescues the children in an “act of mercy”
