    Paul Grace, chief steward of DCAC (Derry City Action Committee), explains how they have ended their ban on street demonstrations as a result of the People's Democracy march from Belfast to Derry and subsequent events.

    Grace explains the meaning of the word truce for the DCAC. He argues that the DCAC had agreed to an end of street demonstrations until 25 January. However, in view of what has happened on the Belfast to Derry march, the DCAC has lifted the ban.
