Sinn Féin’s challenge in divided Belfast: “We win the elections”

BELFAST – Connor, 35, a Protestant in a hoodie, sketches new graffiti on Belfast’s “Wall of Peace”, one of the many oxymorons of this troubled Northern Ireland capital. Belfast is the last city in Europe torn by barriers, moreover multiplied by the peace of 1998. Then there were 18, today 109. And this huge wall, one kilometer long and 20 meters high against stones and Molotov cocktails, divides the depressed Protestant quarter Shankill from the catholic and prettier Falls Road.
