Reportages: Derry
DERRY: no more troubles

Derry or Londonderry, how somebody like to call it to underline a relation with the United Kingdom, is the second city and port of the Ireland of the North. It is situated on the mouth of the Foyle river. Between 1969 and 1972 it was the center of the Movement of the Civil Rights, which fought for the equality of the rights between Catholics and Protestants. The quarter of BOGSIDE (outside from walls) catholic and laborer knew the first manifestations and putsches. The WATERSIDE quarter is instead still in great part protestant. Today Derry is a pacific town, which has overcame the old violence. In the bottom to Westland Street, in the Bogside, the paintings walls honor the dead persons of the sadly famous Bloody Sunday. It was the Sunday of September 30th 1972 when 13 persons lost the life in the crashes with the British parachutists. They are just like a monument in order to remember that similar facts have to be defeated forever.
