Murder In Mind

A small tribute to the Bloody Sunday dead: portraits of fifteen victims with two verses of a song “Murder In Mind”: “They came to our town, the Paras, with murder in mind//As people marched down from Creggan/Towards the Guildhall for civil rights/It was a cold but sunny day/No one could image what was in front of them that sunny day.//The Paras stood in William Street/Laughing and chatting and raring to go/To murder for king and crown/And for Ted Heath 10 Downing Street”. (Also seen in 2002.)

The memorial pillar dates back to 1974.

Lecky Road Underpass

This is the scene at the Lecky Road underpass (going up to Barrack Street) in February 2007: above,”SF/RUC scum”, “Kill all cops”, “Vote Peggy O’Hara“, “Israel scum”, with tricoloured supports and light-pole; below, a series of paste-ups to victims of Bloody Sunday (on its 35th anniversary) and others nominated as part of Bluebell Arts’s “Unsung Heroes” project – Willie McKinney (killed on Bloody Sunday), Kevin McElhinney (killed on Bloody Sunday), “Palestinian youth from Balata refugee camp. Despite being denied a homeland, they dare to dream. Nominated by Bluebell Arts”. Here is a gallery of images from the anniversary march (indymedia) with plenty of anti-SF messages on display.
