Unionist Bigots Force Six Counties To Brink, 1974

This short documentary looks at the Workers Council Strike of 1974, when embittered Unionists in the Occupied Six Counties of Ireland decided to protest against the power-sharing Sunningdale Agreement.

Both mainstream Unionists and paramilitaries, as well as elements from the RUC and UDR, stood together at illegal roadblocks in a demonstration of their bigotry and lack of respect for their Nationalist neighbours. Unionist paramilitaries marched in their areas in full view of the supposed police force.

The arch-bigot, Ian Paisley, who pretended to be a Christian minister, was to the fore in the protests and trouble that followed.
