A photo of Free Derry Corner taken in the rain at twilight on 18 November 2023.
Free Derry Corner is in the Bogside area of Derry City, Ireland. Inspired by the sit-in protests in Berkeley University, the words “You Are Now Entering Free Derry” were painted on the gable wall of a terraced house in 1969 during the Battle of the Bogside. Today the wall has become a recognised symbol of resistance and is used as a sort of public noticeboard to highlight important contemporary issues.
In these dark times for Palestine, we’re using it to show Derry’s (and Ireland’s) support for the Palestinian people.
