Despite this issue, DLG and the British Government set in place a range of Acts and treaty’s in order to successfully resolve this issue. It may however be argued that they made the situation worse by partitioning Ireland, splitting it into the Unionists in the North and the Republicans in the South. David Lloyd George decided to tackle this problem with a strategy revolving around repression and reform. He decided to send in a group called the ‘Black and Tans’. These were army and police men and were sent to fight the IRA and reduce the chances of the civilians of Ireland retaliating.
Despite the heightened sense of optimism and economic prosperity during the 1950s to 1960s, there were still many factors contributing towards tensions amongst Unionists and Nationalists in Ireland. Discontent communities, political tensions, economic problems and divisions in society all played a key part in rousing the rise of the Civil Rights movement in Northern Ireland throughout the 1960s. Segregation and discrimination was the single most important factor in the rise of the civil rights movement in Northern Ireland. The divisions in society had stemmed from the sectarian tension that had gradually build up from as early as the 16th century, and although it was reduced between 1950-1960, there were still prominent gaps of prejudice which filled communities. Education was still largely a segregated school system in the 1960s, where Catholics and Protestants students played different sports, engaged in different community groups and so on.
The people had a goal to reach equality for all, in article three Noah Webster stated "Equality is the very soul of the republic." Chapter 6 is full of evidence of Americans struggling for equality, especially through religion and voting rights. The honorable way the people rebelled to gain their freedom is what made this revolution a revolutionary movement. The primary consequence of the American Revolution was expanding religious freedom. Before the revolution, people were living
How is the growth of Sinn Fein, from fringe revolutionary organization to provisional government, best explained? The growth of Sinn Fein from a fringe revolutionary organization to a provision government can be put down to a multitude of factors, including tactics taken, its anti-war stance, its association with the Easter Rising and the poor policies of the British Government. These allowed the organization to play the rest of Great Britain and Ireland and ultimately raise national consciousness for themselves, and consequently becoming and provisional government. The tactics employed by the Sinn Fein movement was vital in their growth to becoming a provisional government. The act of tactical and dubious voting was an essential part of the tactics used by Sinn Fein to sustain growth into a substantial political group.
Joseph Campbell Civil disobedience Civil disobedience is the act of violating the law in order to make others aware of personal disagreement. There has been much civil disobedience throughout the history of the world and more importantly, the United States, which have changed laws to better the lives of society. Such iconic civil disobedience that we have witnessed throughout our own history in the United States are things like the Boston Tea Party, and the actions of both Rosa Parks and Susan B. Anthony. Historically, has civil disobedience been successful at changing the laws for the betterment of society as a whole? I believe that it has in more ways than one.
These laws proved to be highly unsuccessful and caused resentment towards Augustus, forcing him to revise them in AD 9 through the Lex Papia Poppaea. This amendment reduced penalties against unmarried and childless people, whilst increasing rewards for those married with children. Overall, Augustus’ social reforms were definitely not as successful as his political ones due to the unpopularity and resentment they created. Conclusively, it is evident that Augustus introduced many new political and social reforms and managed to create a whole new system of government through the Principate. Augustus was clearly more successful with his political reforms
Throughout history, many social protests have caused an uprising and agitation in an otherwise overlooked flaw or exaggerated prejudice against a certain situation. The main influences include that of Dr. Martin Luther King’s non-violent protests, and their efforts for an equal America, the anti-war movements of the 1960s or even the recent social protests against Prop 8 and gay rights. All three have in common a genuine effort to change a situation that the appointed leaders of our country fail to deem as an extremely poor direction for our country. Without the efforts of such leaders as Martin Luther King or the Anti-war movement including Benjamin Spock, the SANE committee and SPU organization, change would have not come as soon as it would
Stonewall: A Revolution Serving as the battleground for a cultural revolution, the young generation of America in the 60’s and 70’s found themselves challenging the ideas of the conservative government they lived under. What can best be described as a time of discovery and questioning, advances in the civil rights movement as well as the conflicts in Vietnam seemed to divide the nation. Within these events, America saw the rise of another revolution brewing, one that had started long before but continued to get pushed aside: that of equal rights for homosexuals. The Stonewall Riots are often cited as the beginning of the equality movement, however history tells a somewhat different story; a story in which the Stonewall riots are more of a plot twist as opposed to being an opening scene. However, these riots drastically changed the fundamental ideas and goals of the gay rights movement.
What were the principal obstacles to the Northern Ireland peace process between 1991 and 1998? The Peace Process was the coming together of the Irish and British governments, as well as the unionist and loyalist parties of Northern Ireland, the IRA (Irish Republican Army) and Loyalist paramilitary groups, to put an end to the violence which had taken over all aspects of life in the North of Ireland and had spread to Britain. This violence was known as The Troubles. The Troubles were an infamous series of sectarian events that are world renowned, which took place in Northern Ireland between the late 1960’s and 1990’s; although many argue that the violence is still on-going. The violence incurred between the Protestant/Loyalist majority who wanted to remain a part of the United Kingdom and the Catholic/Nationalist minority who believed they were being discriminated against and wanted to reunite with the rest of Ireland.
