Damn Your Concessions, England

“Níl aon rud acu ina n-armlann impiriul [impiriúil] a bhrisfidh meon an Éireannaigh [Éireannach] nar mhain [mhian] leis a bheith briste – They have nothing in their whole imperial arsenal that can break the spirit [of an Irishman who does want to be broken]” “Damn your concessions, England – it’s our freedom we want.” [– Seán Mac Diarmada]

“Maghaberry concentration camp – End forced strip searches – End controlled movement.”

Freedom Of Speech

“Freedom Of Speech” was the name given to a piece that the Bogside Artists did during a stay at Hanover College in November 2010, during a tour of the USA. In that piece, the mouth was closed with plain red tape (Hanover) but for this local version, the mouth is closed with tape that combines the Union Flag with green and orange strands. As the second image shows, the piece did not last long when put outside – the difference in date between the two images is four days.

Rossville St, Derry.
