abstract
Although the campaign of violence in Northern Ireland between Nationalists, the Catholic minority, and the Unionists, predominantly Protestants, was never declared a civil war, it was popularly know as "The Troubles"; sadly, this bitter conflict claimed over 3,000 lives over 25 years, which ended in 1998 with the signing of the Belfast Agreement, also called "the Good Friday Agreement" or the G.F.A. This historical documentary introduces viewers to a significant number of individuals who were involved in this battle for Civil Rights. Laura Flanders reports on the discord; also we meet Marie Mulholland, a community organizer; Gerry Campbell, a Ford Motor Company employee; John Keanie, the Derry town clerk; Eamonn McCann, a Civil Rights activists; Andrew Tyndall, a media analyst, who, today, is editor of the Tyndall Report; also Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, the youngest woman ever elected to the British parliament. She wrote the book, The Price of My Soul, which publicized discrimination against Roman Catholics in her country. Worth noting is, in 2003, she was barred from entering the United States and deported by the State Department, which declared her "a serious threat to the security of the U.S."
