“Good Political Mural in the Bogside”

Republican Murals: Civil Rights Association
Ranked #76 of 138 things to do in Derry
Reviewed 4 October 2013

The "Civil Rights" mural in the Bogside -- showing a black and white image of protesters with signs displaying slogans such as "Jobs Not Creed" & "One Man One Vote" -- displays a the marches during the Troubles in the 1960's. Looking at this mural in person makes your mind correlate this with many images of Civil Rights marches in America during this same time with Martin Luther King, and even with Anti-Vietnam rallies.

My wife and I saw this mural at night (which is the best time to see the murals with the lights illuminating them in the dark Bogside) in September 2013, and though not my favorite mural (in part due to the art itself, and the image), it definitely shows the theme of civil disobedience during the 1960's, and is familiar to many other civil marches across the globe around the same time.

Though you definitely should see this mural along with the rest of the Bogside Murals, others such as "The Runner", "Petrol Bomber", and "Bernadette" I believe illustrate life in the Bogside and life during the Troubles with more impact.
