St James’s Support The Hunger Strikers

This is a late-life shot of the mural at the corner of Hugo Street. There are now two windows in the mural, graffiti has been blacked out across the lower third, and the mural on the side wall (to the left of image) has gone completely.

You can track its history to this point by comparing this image with those from 2006 | 2002 | 2001.

Éirígí Supports Palestine POWs

Graffiti as a quick replacement on the Éirígí spot on the wall at the former Andersonstown RUC barracks. The green lettering underneath was for the election (see M06719) which was initially covered over with Brendan Lillis posters (X00520).

RIP Gaddafi

Having ruled Libya since deposing the Senussi regime in 1969, Muammar Gaddafi was himself captured and killed by rebels on October 20th, 2011. He is remembered in this minor piece of Meenan Square, Derry, graffiti for providing the IRA with weapons and cash during the Troubles (WP | Middle East Eye).

Support for ETA (“ETA rule”) and Hamas can also be seen. “BRY” is Bogside Republican Youth.
