    Basic Social Deprivation the Cause of Unrest
  • Extended description

    The Cameron Commission was set up under Lord Cameron to investigate disturbances in Northern Ireland.

    Bernadette Devlin argues that the underlying discontent which exploded on October 5th 1968, and which has since shaken this state to its foundations, emanated from basic social deprivation, lack of jobs and lack of houses. Devlin sees this as the central point which has been completely ignored.
