This mural in St James’s was originally painted for the 1995 “green ribbon” mural by Andrea Redmond. The dove holds the keys that will set the republican prisoners (symbolised by the barbed wire) free.

They Weren’t Criminals Then

“1981 – hungerstrikers gain political status; 1998 – Good Friday Agreement signs it away; 2006 – political prisoners are again denied political status. Re-instate political status now!” “The hunger strikers died for political status”. “They weren’t criminals then! They still aren’t now!”. Boards on the railings outside the IRSP offices on the Falls Road.
