BLM Scum

The height of anti-BLM sentiment came last year (2020) when the statue of Winston Churchill in London’s Parliament Square was vandalised and boarded up for protection, lest it suffer the same fate as the statue of Edward Colston in Bristol (iNews | NYTimes) met at the hands of protestors marching in response to the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis, USA (for CNR support for see An Injustice To One Is An Injustice To All | You Cannot Put A Knee Upon The Neck Of An Idea | Here To Stay | Black Lives Matter). The graffiti in the Woodvale (below) is from 2021, however. The graffiti above is in the Highfield area.

Deserted! Well, We Can Stand Alone

The well-known anti-Home Rule slogan used previously in various PUL murals (see Together We Stand Alone (2010), Female Guardians (2005), Deserted! Well I Can Stand Alone (2004), How Is Freedom Measured? (1989) and Deserted! Well – I Can Stand Alone (1988)) to express a sense of abandonment by Britain and fear of (what would initially be) “Southern Ireland” is found fitting for the present situation, in which Britain – by means of the NI Protocol – is abandoning Northern Ireland to Europe. “No surrender!”

Contractors Beware

“By order of R. Coole.” Two of the Rathcoole towers have been scheduled for demolition by the NIHE, beginning with Monkscoole House this summer, to be followed later by Abbottscoole House. In their place, 50 homes will be built, about half as many as currently reside in the two blocks; this has led to graffiti in the estate protesting the plan (Newtownabbey Times one | two).

Byrne Out, Foster Out

Arlene Foster yesterday repeated her demand that the Chief Constable of the PSNI Simon Byrne resign over the DPP’s decision not to pursue any prosecutions in connection with the Bobby Storey funeral (BelTel). Residents of the Fountain in Londonderry – in a stencil painted before the current rioting – want both of them to step down.
