Mural Unveiling To Helen Harris

Family, friends and comrades of Helen Harris gathered this afternoon at Free Derry Corner to unveil a fitting tribute to a much-loved activist.

Despite the onslaught from strong winds the mural, created by Women Activists for Social Justice, depicting the ancient Celtic symbol of Sheela Na Gig was finally put in place.

As everyone gathered for photos Helen’s friend and local activist, Daisy Mules spoke of Helen’s life and activism completing the unveiling.

On Saturday 24th September, for what would have been Helen’s 40th birthday, an evening of chat, music and food will be held in Cultúrlann Uí Chanáin in celebration of her life.

More photographs of today’s unveiling can be seen on the Derry Anarchists Facebook page.
