One World, One Struggle

The mural in support of East Timor begins to show its wear (originally painted in 2000), not least because the hoarding for Duffy’s bookmakers has come off. The falling bombs are made by Raytheon, who will be back in the forefront of Derry consciousness in 2006 for their part in the Israeli invasion of Lebanon. Market Street, Derry
