“Make a difference – Join RNU – Be committed – Stand as one – Implement 12th August Agreement! – End strip searches – End controlled movement.” Cogús is the POW department of the RNU, no longer on-line at http://www.republicannetwork.ie. The board is on the rear of Free Derry Corner, which has its own Visual History page.
Support for Glasgow Rangers in a mural from the “Londonderry Loyal RSC [Rangers Support Club]” (and a stencil next to “PSNI touts out”) and the Northern Ireland team (“our wee country”) in the Fountain, Londonderry.
The theme “Remember the fallen from war” is illustrated by a bombed-out Ballymacarret library on Templemore Avenue and St. Patrick’s church, which is just across the street from the mural, both of which were hit during the blitz in 1942, a police land rover, Cuchulainn, and (representing peace??) Stormont. We are supposed to remember the dead because (perhaps) their deaths were, while necessary, misguided as means to peace, at least according to the saying along the bottom (sometimes attributed to Einstein): “Peace cannot be kept by force; it can only be achieved by understanding.” If you have a better interpretation, please leave a comment.
The mural was imitated on the hoarding around the Cultúrlann on the Falls Road during its renovation – see X01279.
“End PSNI harassment – smash section 44!” ‘Section 44’ is a reference to the Terrorism Act of 2000, which allows police to stop and search people without “reasonable suspicion”. Éirígí campaign banner on the Falls Road, Belfast.
