20 years ago not only did political representatives of loyalist paramilitary groups take part in peace negotiations, but their buy-in helped boost the “YES” vote supporting the 1998 peace agreement. Here and now however, the loyalist community, is frequently portrayed rightly or wrongly as opposed to political “progress.” A panel discussion in the heart of “loyalist West Belfast” on the Shankill Road, with local politicians and community workers, as well as sketches by the Shankill’s own “Heel and Ankle” Theatre Group explores where that commitment to peacebuilding, civic regeneration and community reconciliation has “gone” in the past two decades and how it might be renewed.
This event is supported by the Senator George J Mitchell Institute for Global Peace, Security and Justice.
