Examples of Anti-Internment Posters

Image Details
Title: Army Protection
Date: 1970 (?)
Produced by: People's Democracy
Main text within image: 'Army Protection'
Description: This poster refers to the fact that the British Army, when it was first deployed in Northern Ireland in 1969, was seen as offering protection to people. However the Army soon acted in a police role and began to arrest large numbers of Catholics. Subsequently the Army was also used in 1971 to implement the policy of Internment.
