Our Struggle Continues

Óglach Charlie Hughes was O.C. of PIRA D Company (“the dogs”) in west Belfast. He was killed in March 1971 as part of the feud between the OIRA and the Provisionals. PIRA volunteers, including Charlie and cousin Brendan Hughes (“The Dark”), had burned down OIRA drinking den The Burning Embers, across from Charlie’s house on Balkan Street, and were moving on to The Cracked Cup on Leeson Street, but were met with gunfire. Hughes was killed later that night, after a ceasefire had been agreed, by a single shot (WP | a 2002 account by The Dark).
The other figure shown is Palestinian skyjacker Leila Khaled (see also Oppression Breeds Resistance).

Smash The Wall Of Separation

More “patronising slogans” from the Cupar Way “peace” line. The artist was realistic enough to draw a security camera in the top left corner, keeping a eye on the people with peace and love balloons.

Front & Sides

The two derelict houses at the top of the Springfield Road have had a make-over, with a paint-job and fake windows showing curtains and lamps. As can be seen in the two images below, the sides remain the same, with the Ballymurphy Massacre on one side and the Mass Graves Of Ireland mural on the other. Here’s a “before” view on Google Maps.
