Hunger Strike 81

Here are two images of a variety of small boards in Gardenmore Road/Laburnum Way, Belfast, including three about the RUC, a tricoloured H-shaped board with ten crosses, and a portrait of Bobby Sands who lived in the building that the boards are on. (The portrait and the items in the second image date back to at least 1996. See C01012 and C01007.)

Political Status Denied

The fight for political status by the ten 1981 hunger-strikers in the H-Blocks (plus Michael Gaughan and Frank Stagg from the 70s) is linked to the status of republican prisoners in Maghaberry in 2001. A volunteer in funereal clothing, including an Easter lily on his beret, is at the centre. Camlough Road/Carnagat Road, Newry, stronghold of PIRA S. Down, Armagh Brigade.
