Nella primavera del 1998 Blair e il premier irlandese Bertie Ahern presenziano ai colloqui tra i vari partiti politici nordirlandesi che sfociano, il 10 aprile 1998, nell'Accordo del Venerd Santo (Good Friday Agreement, chiamato anche Belfast Agreement). L'Accordo stabilisce che il governo dell'Irlanda del Nord sia composto da rappresentanti sia dei partiti protestanti che dei partiti cattolici in maniera proporzionale al risultato delle elezioni. Nell'Accordo si prevede anche il rilascio dei detenuti appartenenti alle organizzazioni paramilitari che rispetteranno il cessate-il-fuoco.

The prisoner was taken away to solitary confinement, and rumours spread across the wing that the prisoner had been badly beaten.[6] The prisoners responded by smashing the furniture in their cells, forcing the prison authorities to remove the remaining furniture from the cells, leaving only blankets and mattresses.[6] The prisoners responded by refusing to leave their cells and, as a result, the prison officers were unable to clear them. The prisoners requested that showers be installed in their cells; and when this request was turned down, they refused to use the wash-hand basins.[6] At the end of April 1978, a fight occurred between a prisoner and a prison officer in H-Block 6.

I Blocchi H erano edifici di cemento armato a un piano costruiti a forma di H in cui la barra centrale della H ospitava le stanze dell'amministrazione mentre i quattro bracci contenevano ognuno 25 celle (a Long Kesh i Blocchi H erano otto, e quelli che ospitavano i detenuti che partecipavano alle proteste erano H3, H4, H5 e H6). Infatti il governo dal 1 marzo 1976 abol lo status di "prigioniero politico" (Special Category Status) fino ad allora concesso ai detenuti paramilitari, che scontavano la condanna in baracche di lamiera come i prigionieri di guerra della seconda guerra mondiale e che come questi ultimi avevano una struttura di comando all'interno del carcere. Mentre la violenza continuava nelle strade dell'Irlanda del Nord, il governo britannico prese una decisione destinata a produrre i suoi effetti, che durano ancora oggi, negli anni a venire. Oltre a ci venne anche costruita una nuova parte del carcere di Long Kesh in cui avrebbero scontato la pena i paramilitari condannati dal 1976 in avanti: i famigerati Blocchi H (H-Blocks).

In tutto questo l'esercito britannico, colpito molto duramente dall'IRA (nel solo 1972 morirono 108 soldati[5]) non riusciva a distinguere tra i guerriglieri e i semplici cittadini, comportandosi in modo tale da alienarsi le simpatie della comunit cattolica assicurando un numero costante di reclute all'IRA. L'IRA colpiva con le bombe contro "obiettivi economici", che per uccidevano anche molti civili, e con agguati contro i soldati, mentre i paramilitari lealisti colpivano indiscriminatamente la popolazione cattolica per il suo supporto, vero o presunto, alle attivit dell'IRA.

Cronologia[modifica | modifica wikitesto]

A political source in Westminster hostile to Neave's statements on the security situation in Northern Ireland is believed to have passed on information to the INLA which gave it the means to carry out the assassination attack upon him within the precincts of the Palace of Westminster.

Cominciarono cos 48 ore di battaglia, con i residenti del Bogside che tiravano pietre e bottiglie molotov alla RUC che rispose usando, per la prima volta nel Regno Unito, il gas CS (il gas lacrimogeno)[3]. Nei mesi seguenti le manifestazioni si susseguirono sotto l'egida del CAC (Citizens Action Committee) alla guida del quale c'erano personaggi poi diventati famosi come Ivan Cooper, John Hume, Bernadette Devlin e Eamonn McCann. Il 12 agosto 1969, in occasione della marcia annuale degli Apprentice Boys di Derry, che celebra la resistenza protestante all'assedio della citt da parte delle truppe di Giacomo II nel 1689, ci furono scontri molto violenti e la Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC), la polizia della provincia, tent di entrare nel Bogside, dove erano state erette delle barricate.

During the 1980s, the British government slowly introduced changes, granting what some would see as political status in all but name. They organised themselves along military lines and exercised wide control over their respective H-Blocks. Republican and loyalist prisoners were housed according to group.

Thousands of people attended their funerals, the biggest republican funerals in Northern Ireland since those of the IRA hunger strikers of 1981.[30]Gerry Adams, in his graveside oration, gave a speech stating the British Government understood that it could buy off the government of the Republic of Ireland, which he described as the "shoneen clan" (that is, Anglophile), but added "it does not understand the Jim Lynaghs, the Pdraig McKearneys or the Samus McElwaines. It thinks it can defeat them. The IRA members killed in the ambush became known as the "Loughgall Martyrs" among IRA supporters.[29] The men's relatives considered their deaths to be part of a deliberate shoot-to-kill policy by the security forces.

The RUC and army arrested 342 Irish nationalists, but key Provisional Irish Republican Army (IRA) members had been tipped off and 104 of those arrested were released when it emerged they had no paramilitary connections.[2] Those behind Operation Demetrius were accused of bungling, by arresting many of the wrong people and using out-of-date information. Following the introduction of internment in 1971, Operation Demetrius was implemented by the Royal Ulster Constabulary (RUC) and British Army with raids for 452 suspects on 9 August 1971. Following nationalist protests, some Ulster loyalists were also arrested.

Members of the unit, such as Jim Lynagh and Pdraig McKearney, advocated a strategy of destroying bases and preventing them being rebuilt or repaired in an attempt to "deny ground" to British forces.[10][11] In 1985, Patrick Joseph Kelly became its commander and began implementing the strategy. By the mid-1980s it had become one of the IRA's most aggressive formations. In both attacks, the bases were raked with machine-gun fire and then severely damaged with homemade bombs. In 1985 and 1986, it carried out two major attacks on Royal Ulster Constabulary bases.[12] The first was an attack on the RUC barracks in Ballygawley on 7 December 1985, in which two police officers were shot dead. The second was an attack on an RUC base at The Birches on 11 August 1986. The IRA's East Tyrone Brigade was active mainly in eastern County Tyrone and neighbouring parts of County Armagh.
