Human Rights In Northern IrelandStreaming Video - 2013
In 1921 the six counties of Northern Ireland were partitioned from the twenty-six counties of the south. A Protestant, unionist dominated parliament was established in 1922. Its policies in the areas of housing, employment, and voting rights, discriminated against the Catholic population. Subsequent protests and preemptively violent responses from the local security eventually led to the murder of thirteen demonstrators in the incident known as Bloody Sunday. This episode examines the continuing conflict and its social and economic impacts. Andrew Tyndall reports on why the media are more interested in the troubles of the British Royals than "The Troubles" in Northern Ireland. New York Times reporter John Burns also features an interview with Irish politician and activist Bernadette Devlin-McAliskey, as well as a report from Sarajevo.
