  • Extended description

    Bernadette Devlin addresses supporters at Draperstown, Co. Derry, where she identifies the enemy as the Ulster Unionist Party and not the ordinary working man who differs in religion.

    Devlin goes on to specify the enemy as the Orange Order who she describes as a "vicious sectarian body". She argues that both Catholics and Protestants need to stand together against the oppressor. "It is time that we stood up now and demanded the kind of society to which we, the people of this country, have a right."
