FREE DERRY - IRISH CITY OF RESISTANCE 2013

FUCK CELEBRATING BRITISH COLONIALISM 2013
The name Derry is an anglicisation of the Irish name Doire or Doire Cholmcille meaning “oak-wood of Colmcille”. ‘ In 1613 ‘, the city was granted a Royal Charter by King James I and the “London” prefix was added, changing the name of the city to Londonderry.A major part of the English occupation was to build a new walled town on the site of the old Doire. 

A new charter for the new city was issued. Between 1614 and 1618 the walls encircling the site of the new plantation city were completed. The native Irish were kept outside the defensive walls, so they began to build homes on the nearby Bogside.
As you can see this all took place in 1613 and 2013 UK city of cultue is the 400th anniversary of the Colonisation of Doire.
