No More Human Shields

The names of portraits of the ten deceased 1981 hunger strikers, plus Frank Stagg and Michael Gaughan, are on six of the seven New Lodge “houses” (high-rise buildings), two per house. Other slogans have appeared just below them, such as the “No more human shields – Brits out” shown in the first image, below the portrait of Bobby Sands on Teach Eithne (perhaps a reference to the Army positions on top of Teach Mhéabha (Maeve House) and Teach Gráinne?). For more images, see this Extramural Activity post.
