Today we should remember thousands of people who were murdered by the IRA in cold blood, not Martin McGuinness, says campaign group Justice 4 the 21.
Former IRA leader Martin McGuinness has died at the age of 66. As head of the militant republican group, McGuinness oversaw several brutal terrorist acts - notably the Birmingham pub bombings which killed 21 people in 1974.
Julie Hambleton, who lost her sister in the bombings, is the founder of Justice 4 the 21. She told Paul Ross: "Today is a day we should be remembering the thousands of people who were murdered in cold blood.
“This man is being heralded as a peacemaker, almost as a god, when in actual fact he was just a cog in a wheel of a big project to bring about peace in Northern Ireland.
“Nobody is immortal and this catches up with everybody, however he was fortunate, he lived a full life, thousands of people didn’t."
Hambleton also said her sister was "kind and thoughtful" and the "epitome of a big sister."
