January 10-15th, 2018 – Mark Thompson ended a near week long emergency American tour which generated a new Congressional initiative, five public events and formal proclamations of support by the New York State Senate, Assembly and local governments. Sponsored by the New York State Board Ancient Order of Hibernians, the tour brought together other Irish American organizations, and commitments to help Relatives for Justice (RFJ) and the victims they represent break the deadlock on legacy truth.
