10 Unite The Union Mural in Belfast, Northern Ireland

There are numerous murals in Belfast. Most have political overtones and recall challenging times in the city’s history. Several are sponsored by Unite the Union, an organization dedicated to serving, protecting and negotiating for the rights and benefits of its worker members. This one by Danny and Marty Lyons is on Victoria Street. The painting features Jim Larkin, an early 20th century organizer of dock laborers. His efforts lead to the Belfast Lockout in 1907 and another one in Dublin in 1913. When Big Jim went to the U.S. and was sympathetic to the Communist Party, he was imprisoned in Sing Sing.
