Young Men Throw Rocks During A Belfast Riot Ca. 1970Unknown - 1970
In Northern Ireland growing unrest between the Catholic minority and the Protestant majority erupted into violence in the late 1960s. Riots were common on the streets of Belfast, Northern Ireland's capital city, as a militant terrorist group known as the Irish Republican Army (IRA) rose to prominence, protesting discrimination against Catholics and demanding a unified Ireland. In response to the escalating violence, Britain sent troops to maintain order in 1969 and assumed direct rule over Northern Ireland in 1972.
