Tearing up the sidewalk to have things to throw at the Army

The Army preparing to advance

The Army advancing

The Army moving back after firing rubber bullets

Someone throwing a rock at an army vehicle
The rock is the blur above and slightly to the left of his head

People watching some kind of vehicle being overturned and set on fire

The vehicle burning, probably half an hour later

The day before Thanksgiving - 1971

There were so many of us that someone decided, rather than reimburse all of us for getting to the airport in Belfast, it would be cheaper to charter an Ulsterbus
