Bernadette McAliskey RIC 2014

Here’s Bernadette Devlin (that was) member of the  civil rights movement in Ulster in the late 1960s, former MP 1969 to 1974 for Mid-Ulster, who slapped the Home Secretary Reginald Maudling , when he stated in the House of Commons that the Parachute Regiment  had fired in self-defence on Bloody Sunday.

She was later associated with Republican Socialism and has always been   tireless in striving to improve the rights of migrant workers in Northern ireland.

In this speech she compares the Scottish radical independence movement with what was achieved in Ireland, comments on the peace process  and offers some words of advice about future pitfalls as Scotland continues to move towards its next objectives in achieving independence.
