Llibertat – Saoirse

The flag and map on the left is the flag of the Catalan Countries (the Starry Plough is in the middle, the Tricolour on the right, with Ireland as a blob). The Catalan Countries include (in Spain) Catalonia, parts of Valencia, and the Balearic islands, plus Andorra, and (in France) the Roussillon region. For a similar pairing (llibertat-saoirse) with portraits of international heroes, see Llibertat (also Llibertat Països Catalans).

Frederick Douglass

Frederick Douglass, 1818-1895. “Inspired by two Irishmen to escape from slavery Frederick Douglass came to Ireland during the famine. Henceforth he championed the abolition of slavery, women’s rights and Irish freedom.” “Perhaps no class has carried prejudice against colour to a point more dangerous than have the Irish and yet no people have been more relentlessly oppressed on account of race and religion. (Also by Douglass, and which would have made an apt quote for the mural: “I prayed for twenty years but received no answer until I prayed with my legs.”) Divis Street, Belfast.
