Protect the Civil Rights Mural, Stand by the Civil Rights Movement

We, the undersigned, whilst supportive of the regeneration of the 'Museum of Free Derry and National Civil Rights Archive', express our concern at aspects of the plans which will obscure the iconic Civil Rights Mural in the heart of the Bogside which will enhance the visitor experience and pledge ourselves to protecting the legacy of the Civil Rights Movement and the People's Gallery of Murals via the peaceful and progressive means employed by the Civil Rights Movement in this City.


  • The Bogside Artists Derry The regeneration of the " Museum of Free Derry Civil Rights Archive " is to be welcomed , but the question is , whose idea was it to build a wall and ramp around the Civil Rights Mural to obscure it from public view and whats their Justification for it ?

When the Berlin Wall was removed, more than just a few bricks and slabs of concrete were destroyed. Observsely, when the Wall went up, it was more than a view of a city that was obscured. Human rights, human dignity, freedom, democracy, these were all confined at the same time. The act of preservation can mean to set things in concrete to some.
