To Bathe The Sharp Sword Of My Word In Heaven

2015-06-29 Bradford+
South Belfast MP Robert Bradford was assassinated by the Provisional IRA in Finaghy at a meeting with constituents; the caretaker of the community centre, Ken Campbell, was also killed by the fleeing attackers. In late 1981, with the hunger strikes having ended only a month before, the killing was noted around the world and raised fears of broad civil unrest (BBC | NYTimes). The board above serves as a substitute for an earlier Oak Street mural to Bradford. See below for a wide shot of Oak Street with the Bradford board between the repainted Cemented With Love and No Surrender Club.
