We Won’t Bend The Knee

Here are three republican boards, framed: on the left, “Belfast Brigade ONH”; above right, “Until all are free we are all imprisoned – support all republican POWs – RNU (Fb)/Cogús (Fb); below right, the deceased 1981 hunger strikers. The lettering on the left reads “Join the Republican Network For Unity”, and below everything there is a Bobby Sands quote: “We all know the reason that we are being tortured – because we are political dissidents, POWs, and we won’t bend the knee or conform” (from Thoughts From The Shadows).

For What Suffer Our Patriots Today?

Two piece of graffiti along Central Drive, Creggan, Derry. The first – painted by the anti-Agreement group ONH/Óglaigh Na hÉireann – is of the closing words of Pearse’s oration at the funeral of O’Donovan Rossa on August 1st, 1915: “Ireland unfree shall never be at peace”; the second is from Luke Kelly’s poem For What Died The Sons Of Róisín?

Free Tony Taylor Now

This is the first dedicated mention of Tony Taylor (he is listed alongside other republican prisoners in RNU Supports The POWs), perhaps singled out because of his status as RNU spokesperson. Taylor was released under the conditions of the Good Friday agreement but jailed for three years in 2011 for possession of a rifle (BBC).

Support The POWs

This is the ‘Nebula’ version of Free Derry Corner taken over by a republican protest to “Support the POWs”.

“Thatcher 81 – Ford 2011” refers to Margaret Thatcher, UK Prime Minister at the time of the second hunger strike and David Ford, NI Justice Minister at the time of the campaigns to free Marian Price and Brendan Lillis (BBC).
