Peace Babies #2 On both sides of Belfast with Anna

Published on

Peace Babies

Peace Babies is a series about the identity of those who didn't experience the Troubles in Northern Ireland. In this second episode, we introduce you to Anna, a young activist in Belfast, with a Protestant background.

Anna is tall, she has long hair and a big smile. She's waiting for us at the Sunflower, a bar that, at first sight, looks like a lot of alternative places. While the inside lives to the rhythm of the jam sessions, the outer courtyard is quiet and colored by graffiti on the walls.

During the Troubles Anna wouldn't have been welcome on the Sunflower. Her family is Protestant, and at the time, the public space was segregated. Pubs only let in people they knew and who belonged to their community. "For security reasons," she explains, "even today people are surprised to see me here."

A first sound tour of identity in Northern Ireland with Anna, extinction rebellion activist in Belfast.
