Release The Prisoners

This Hillborough Drive stencil dates back to the ceasefire and the Agreement, when the release of political prisoners was a prominent issue in negotiations on both sides. Republicans had a “green ribbon” campaign; loyalists used the the stencil shown here, which has fared better than the plaster it is painted on.
