Campaign Mothers on launch the march

A CAMPAIGN to free two Tamil refugees serving sentences for the 1986 firebombing of a house in London's East End will be launched in London this week.

The case of "the East Ham two" Catholic convert Sam Kulasingham and Methodist Prem Sivalingham has attracted widespread publicity as the last appeal case to be dismissed by former Lord Chief Justice, Lord Lane, responsible for the rejection of appeals by the Birmingham Six and the Tottenham Three.

Sivalingham endured 56 days of hunger strike earlier this year to protest his innocence. Close to death, he agreed to end his fast only after the home office agreed to reopen the case.

Cardinal Hume has visited and prayed with both men in prison. MORE than 3,500 Catholic mothers from all over England walked to Walsingham this week as part of the 46th Union of Catholic Mothers (UCM) Annual Pilgrimage.

Carrying banners as they marched, the mothers followed the route of the ancient pilgrims from the Slipper Chapel into the village of Walsinhgham where they tank part in the traditional blessing of the sick and benediction.

Bishop Alan Clark of East Anglia was joined by over 100 priests in concelebrating Mass in the Chapel of Reconciliation.

In the afternoon, the Union's National President, Joan Gettins. addressed pilgrims and the sermon was preached by Bishor Joseph Gray of Shrewsbury.
