Three of four parts of a long mural about censorship. In the first, a pair of “Censor Ltd” scissors cut the cord to the microphone of a speaker who is also gagged. The second gives figures making the case for the under-representation of Sinn Féin in government: 1 MP, 40[%] nationalist elec[torate?], 56 [city/district] council[lors]. Just out of view to the right of “Censored” is “Britain ignores the voice of arguement.” Ballycolman, Strabane. For the image on which the first panel is based, see Many Have Eyes.
