The Pat Finucane centre inspired report attempts to down play the real reason that prods left the city side of Londonderry.

A local playwright has insisted the mass migration of Protestants in Londonderry during the Troubles was because of intimidation, not a lack of housing or jobs.
“It seems to be seeking to objectify something which has a very visceral and emotional response for the Protestant community in this town,” he said.“People were certainly not moving for houses. They weren’t moving for jobs. They were moving because they were scared. The people who moved know why they moved.”
This just shows how biased and sectarian everything associated with Pat Finucane is.
How could a foundation named after an IRA man even think it could be unbiased and unsectarian?

The report, commissioned by the Pat Finucane Centre, found that while “direct intimidation” did happen and had a “major” impact on those subjected to it, it was not the “principal cause” of the migration.

“This is the first report that has attempted to minimise the murder, the attempted murder, the attacks and the intimidation,” Mr Campbell said.

So on the one hand you have a playwright and your comparing his view with that of the Pat Finucane center. Now could you please post a link to the actual work of that pat Finucane center to which you are objecting.

This is the human rights centre that believes in 30 years of shooting murdering and bombing the PIRA never violated anyone's human rights...

DoG and BtB posting more fantasy.

The supremacy is over and acting the victim after decades of persecuting Catholics is so unbecoming. Instead of pining for the old days, which aren't coming back, you should be looking for ways to live in peace with your neighbour.

So you switch to this nonsense & hide from the collusion thread when your lies about pat being in RA were exposed .. I.e. Contrary to what you said & in response to your request, once proof that the RUC had said he was NOT in the RA was posted you quickly slunk away....
but I suppose what else should we expect from a hypocritical coward who is an apologist for the murder of innocent people ... pure scum !!

A group of loyalists from Glenbryn call their UVF supporting band, the Pride of Ardoyne and saps like you think they are actually from Ardoyne!
Unbefukkinlievable and hilarious in equal measure. Keep the laughs coming.......

Your the person who made the claim so its up to you to support it.
What he’s seemingly saying is that the Finucane Centre claims to be a human rights organisation but does not recognise IRA human rights violations because it completely ignores the many many IRA human rights violations. It’s a fair point. Does the Finucane Centre ignore IRA human rights violations or do they actually investigate anything other than actions based on a Politically motivated, not human rights focussed, anti-British agenda?

Some were very directly intimidated from their homes, it is true. Friends in many cases. Went nuts when the troubles kicked off.

Why are you lads always comparing and equating the IRA to the British Army, RUC and other agencies of a sovereign state?

So your argument is why does the PF center not investigate the actions of the nationalists/republicans?

It does. The PFC offers support to any family bereaved as a result of the conflict. It's up to families to contact the PFC that is also free of charge and works with all statutory bodies.
