I Refuse To Change

On the main gable wall, a funeral volley of three volunteers fires over the coffin of Bobby Sands, with the beginning of a quote from Sands: “I refuse to change to sui[t people who oppress, torture and imprison me. They have suppressed my body and attacked my dignity, but I have the spirit of freedom that cannot be quenched by even the most horrendous treatment.]”

On the side wall, a prisoner is crucified, with the words “St Peter, let these men enter heaven, for they have served their time in hell.” – a variation on James Donahue’s WWII Soldier’s Poem (WP).

Here is a wide shot of the panels in Bishop Street. Some of these were previously featured in close-up (Patsy O’Hara | Broken H | Saor ÉireSpirit Of Freedom | Unlock H BlockFlags And Shields) but a few were not: Victory To The Hunger Strikers and a harp, to the right (probably with “You can kill the revolutionary but not the revolution”).
