In days gone by one of the most popular forms of protest in West Belfast was the ‘white line picket’ – SF seem to have given up on it as a ‘tactic’ but I was surprised to see the length of one recent picket on the Falls in support of political status for republican prisoners.

Just as I was surprised at the numbers turning out for éirígí’s first proper Easter commemoration in Belfast.

Tis the patriot game.
