Civil Order, Plastic Death

02897 2015-09-02 Beechm 06+
“Since 1970 seventeen people killed – including eight children”. A vintage poster against plastic bullets (see also Plastic Death on the Peter Moloney blog for a mural) is part of this Beechmount Avenue mural showing a candle for each of the victims. The first listed (Rowntree, Molloy, Friel) were killed by rubber bullets, the rest by plastic; plastic bullets took over from rubber bullets in 1975 (WP).
