Gort na Móna CLG & Glór na Móna present
Community Lecture Series 2010

August – Tuesday 3rd, 7.30pm

Bernadette McAliskey – ‘Civil Rights to Bill of Rights – Where to now?’

Bernadette is prominent socialist and human rights activist of some forty years standing. As a leading Civil Rights activist in the late 1960s and early 1970s, she was elected as the youngest ever MP at just 21 years of age. She was also very prominent in the Anti–H-Block campaign during the Irish Hunger Strikes of 1980-81 and subsequently survived an attempt on her life when she was shot by Loyalist gunmen during this period. She continues to work tirelessly as a community activist and political analyst and currently directs the South Tyrone Empowerment Project (STEP).

The talk will take place in Gort na Móna CLG, Springfield Road, Belfast.

Many thanks to the person who forwarded this.

Since we are into review of the Northern struggle I thought this radio discussion was worth posting. While I find John MacAnulty’s current positions a little sectarian I have a lot of respect for the courage he displayed down the years. Whatever your views it is worth listening too.

Hopefully COB can get the full audio or video up? Again this clashes with around three other meetings as the Féile will be in full flow. Weren’t these lectures normally held on a Friday pity that. Is there any A/V of Inez McCormick’s lecture? Here is the woman herself speaking at a Connolly Commemoration in Derry on Monday along with Tommy McKearney and Emmett O’Connor:
