The black cab tour of the Peace Walls and Shankill Road is definitely one of the major tourist attractions. But in reality it’s a lot more.. It’s a shattering and important piece of history which reveals nationalist war behind city walls and the background of escalating violence? I never imagined such a huge conflict still exists in Northern Ireland, I mean I knew there was a problem but the scale of it is intimidating.. Belfast cab tour: There’s nothing more interesting than getting a history facts from a passionate inhabitant, someone who lived those hard times and can tell story of his life. I was very lucky to go on the trip with my three native Irish friends to find out how Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland are still deeply divided society. Just in the middle of the Norther Ireland capital city – Belfast, 6 metres metal wired fencing spreads across the city to imprison one religion from another. ‘The troubles’ – also known as the Northern Ireland conflict started in late 1960s. It is an ongoing conflict between Unions, who are mostly Protestants, who always wanted Northern Ireland to remain within the United Kingdom and Irish nationalists (Republicans & mostly Catholics) who want Northern Ireland to join a united Ireland. The peace process that has lasted over the last 20 years did bring some results but those two communities still live apart and the tension between British and Irish identities remains unresolved. Protestants and Catholic children have been thought in different schools, religion segregation also reflected on work places for the parents. After introducing Charter of Human Rights it was no longer legal to ask a religious question during job interview. They asked about a school instead, as most of the Catholic school was named after a saint man, but none of the Protestants would. Job discrimination was omnipresent and none of the Catholics had a chance to work in best work places like shipyard, where only Protestants were employed. In one of the most powerful European Union country with significant human right pillar a huge wall in the middle of Belfast city centre segregates those two communities. Union flags are flutter all over Belfast street lights and windows to remind you’re treading British paths. Every day a man on a bicycle circles across Belfast to close all 5 gates at 6 pm and the last 6th at 10.30pm to reopen them for 6 am next day.
