If you WANNA avoid it altogether let's begin We have covered brexit backwards and forwards. On today explained we've talked about trade and immigration an ideology and it's all been sort of abstract very political but on the show today our reporter. Naughton Hassenfeld is going to take us to a place where you can actually see what brexit might do with your own eyes. Yeah and In the interest of minimizing my carbon footprint. I got someone closer to go for me. My name is Leona and Emma journalist from Northern Ireland Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingdom but it shares a border with the independent country of Ireland to the south. I am on. The border between Northern Ireland and southern Ireland is just signed dairy. It's a very very very busy ruled of pulled to the side of the road here. There's literally hundreds of cars going up and down. Pass me here right now. Since both the United Kingdom and Ireland are in the European Union. That border is barely noticeable. But after tonight while the country of Ireland will still be in the EU things. Start to get complicated at the border brags that has posed particularly difficult and genetic problem for US rex. It could bring checkpoints police the military. But that's nothing new for this border. When you say the border the Northern Irish border people think They Hark back to those days when they're a huge bank military installations where the British army would be there you know their checkpoints and stuff I got. There is nothing like that night at the moment as something. That's kind of forgotten a bite almost as an invisible border when I was growing up Here beside the border you know you. It approaches the border huge military installations corrugated iron walls heavily fortified full of soldiers. Armed soldiers. So sometimes your car will be pulled on. Everybody would be taken out of the car. The car would be searched for guns and ammunition and all that kind of stuff these military installations were shot. They were bombed. You're almost taking your life in your hands stopping them. When you re possums particularly was children on the car it was quite a terrifying experience this peaceful spot where Leona is sitting right now. Thirty years ago it was a living nightmare and nineteen ninety. Potsy Glaspie was a young father the IRA the Irish. Republican Army were targetting particle because he worked in a British army station here and there. They held his wife and his children hostage Told Patsy to get on his van and drive to the British Army station here. The checkpoint on Quinn said. He didn't do that that they should has. Wife and his children this is patsies wife Kathleen. He was chained to the driver seat and the steering wheel of that is loaded with twelve hundred pounds of explosives and he was made to drive the van to the army. Checkpoint Gosh Kwan Tamed. To shut a warning and I was told by one of the soldiers Zhifei that they had run boys. I'm loaded run and Bomb was detonated by remote control and Patsy was blown to pieces. What five soldiers patsy was actually identified by a pace of grace? Zip attached tip piece of the woollen Cardigan under the flesh to this day. Kathleen Remembers Patsy on the border. I'm sitting here actually across the road from the memorial pats. Kathleen leaves floors. I can see them sitting here. She leaves flowers every every week there for her patsy. Brexit isn't just bringing these memories back it actually might disrupt this hard-fought piece. I know from speaking to desert and Republicans in the past that should anti structure go up on the border. Anna can of a sign that says this is the border they will blow it up anyone who puts the life of a customs officer at risk. They will need police protection. The police are then become a target as well as customs officer after our tax on them. The army might be brought back to protect the police. Protect the customs officer and then we're back in the nineteen seventies nineteen eighties Northern Ireland. We have a very delicate peace hero. Northern Ireland anything could just put it over the edge. Peace in Northern Ireland isn't just delicate. It took decades of civilian uprisings military crackdowns and brutal terrorist campaigns to reach this point. Thousands of people died in the process and the peace deal that created. This invisible. Border was an almost impossible. Balancing Act Ireland was part of the British Empire until the beginning of the twentieth century. And this was not a situation which was desired by the majority of people in Ireland. Susan McKay is an author journalist from Londonderry in Northern Ireland. People they're often call it dairy. There was a smaller. Protestant minority concentrated in the northeast of Ireland. Which did not want to be part of a united Ireland so in one thousand nine twenty one. Ireland was partitioned. The South was independent. While the north remained part of the United Kingdom a border was put across the country. And it's an extraordinary border. Zigzag all over the place that cuts off one county donegal practically from the rest of the Republic of Ireland. It divides villages divides hoses. It divides people's farms. This has been denied a small rather old fashioned town and concentrate on one of the six northeastern counties of Ireland which are headed under British rule. The situation the north was that the unionists who were those who were loyal to Britain. Set up the northern station. Such a way that Catholics and nationalists could really have no par. Ku's third of the people of this little town are nationally. That is to say. They are in favor of unity with the rest of Ireland and against being feed as part of one-third unionist which means favouring British rule and the partition of Ireland. But the tone is controlled by the unionist minority and run shortly in there. So the upshot of this gerrymandering is that was called. Was that the. Catholic population lived in extremely disadvantaged circumstances in crowded areas. They didn't of power. Their unemployment was very high and they were extremely unhappy about the state in the nineteen sixties. Things changed with the advent of television and with the advent of second level education for larger numbers of people the Civil Rights Movement Rosa Hosing issues and employment issues and it was met by the northern state with a very violent response civil rights protests against alleged discriminations were dotted at first as no more than a nuisance but as they continued and became more insistent and extreme petrol-bomb ominously replaced stones the main weapons. This was the beginning of what people call the troubles nationalists and Republicans fighting against unionists loyalists or British troops and regular people caught in the middle into the middle of that scenario the IRA the Irish Republican Army begun to build up forces that was very much accelerated in January nineteen seventy-two and bloody Sunday occurred and that was a notorious massacre of innocent civil rights marchers by a British regiment called the paratroopers..

"Hey I'm random Nevada. I'm running out of Louis and this week on through line. We're bringing you something a little bit different. We really liked the show today. Explained and recently they covered the history of Northern Ireland. Brexit has brought Northern Ireland in. Its troubled past back into the news and we were right in the middle of trying to figure out how to tell that very complicated and contested history when we heard an episode of today explained hosted by Sean Swamp. The did just that so we decided to call up the person who made it. My name is Noam Hassenfeld and I'm a reporter producer at today explained okay so no you decided to tackle the history of the troubles and Ireland more. Generally which as I think most people know it's packed with a lot of competing narratives a lot of emotion. So how did you even begin to approach telling this kind of story that was the biggest hurdle I think just because there are so many different ways to tell this story from so many different perspectives. I think people often look at this story. And they say okay. There's the Catholic perspective and there's the Protestant perspective but there's not even just two perspectives. There is the British government perspective. There's the perspective of the Republic of Ireland. What I decided to do was present the conflict part around Brexit and in dealing with the history. I think what I really tried to do is focus on the effects and the suffering rather than the causes and who to blame. I worked with a reporter. Susan McKay who herself had done a bunch of interviews with both Protestants and Catholics in Northern Ireland who had been impacted by violence committed by both Protestants and Catholics. And really what I was trying to show is. Just how how terrible. This situation was Through atrocities committed by all all parties. How tenuous the piece that was created out of this was and how much of a tragedy would be if we were to lose something like this over brexit one of the approaches. You took clearly was to emphasize experience. Who lived it? I'm what was the thinking behind that? Approach that really worked in terms of putting us there in the in that history so I just want to know why you thinking. Yeah so I mentioned Susan McKay. I mean she did this. Incredible series called stories from silence where she interviewed partners of family members that have been killed in the troubles children of family members who have been killed in the troubles it was really a very powerful series and she did a lot of reporting through the troubles and then followed up with them after the type of thing. When when I started out this story I reached out to people as like. Hey can do you know anyone who can connect me to to people who have personal stories in the troubles. In everyone is very rightly I think concerned about someone just parachuting in and telling the story incorrectly are insensitively and Susan. Very graciously allowed me to do was she had done this work. She had put in the time and really understood. All of the things that happened she had lived through the troubles. She grew up in Ireland in Derry or Londonderry and what she allowed me to do was basically take examples of people that were killed by both the Republican Army and by loyalists. And just understand that in both situations. Was You know you can argue? Who's to blame? You can argue whether something was a response to a previous action or who started it. It's not clear to me how you can never solve. Who STARTED IT? But I think there's no arguing with suffering. There's no arguing with how much this impacted every type of person in Northern Ireland. So I think focusing on personal stories a good way to get that across. Thank you know him so much for sharing with us. Death thinks guys after the break the invisible.

K. and that women will no longer have to travel to England which might have you wondering how is it that Northern Ireland has different laws from say Scotland England and Wales if they're all part of the U. K. that's not easy to explain because it's a really crazy time here Susan McKay is an Irish writer who is a veteran of the women's movement and she joins us from just outside Belfast how is it that northern Ireland's laws can be different from the rest of the U. K. well Northern Ireland is in a complex relationship with the United Kingdom on the operations of has been even more complicated over the last couple of years because we had the Good Friday agreement and nineteen ninety eight doc leads to the setting up of an executive in northern Ireland's devolved executive so it was part of the British government but it was default sort have certain powers of its own but unfortunately those assembly broke down and hasn't stopped for a couple of years now is so Northern Ireland is in the strange political limbo where it doesn't have a government so what has happened is that this summer the British government was in the middle of passing a piece of legislation which was sort of a holding exercise just to say yes yes we know north our needs a government we haven't got one right now if everything is going to be fine under the stands number of MPs who are very sympathetic to human rights campaigns in Northern Ireland stepped in and have debates on that insertions closes which said we are going to have same sex marriage and abortion those would previously have been regarded as devolved issues which is to say that the north garland government should have made decisions about them but since we don't have one Westminster was able to step in so Susan that's kind of a brief history of the differences but like if we look back over the years how has abortion figured into these divides well abortion has always been a very controversial issues up until just a few years ago all of the main political parties in Northern Ireland were opposed to abortion in any circumstances but over the last few years particularly because of changes in the Republic which now has quite a liberal abortion regime public attitudes have changed to Northern Ireland but their Democratic Unionist Party house who's friendly yesterday we had the two U. P. calling back the northerners in assembly and a last minute efforts to try to stop the Westminster log with us was the classical because they didn't have a nationalist party willing to go in with someone else so what are the circumstances at this point by which abortion and same sex marriage will actually become law in Northern Ireland well regulations will log the Bros and so that's the low is fully organized according to collapsible principles which are in line with the rest of the UK so it won't be just a free for all where anybody and everybody can just do what they want but the situation at the moment for example is that there is a woman who's facing courts because she bought online abortion pedals for her sixteen year old daughter who was in an abusive relationship with an older mom and the children have become pregnant and when the mother got involved with the health authorities and Northern Ireland they report showed her to the authorities and she was actually arrested and charged with an offense so it's not a theoretical situation here is a very serious one Susan McKay an Irish writer and activist thank you very much for being with us thank you there's another hot button topic in other parts of the U.

"What was she like Larry McKay was very brilliant? You'll journalist and writer, and she had recently moved from Belfast where she had been living with her elderly mother for whom she was carrying to Derry where she was planning to live with Sarah of unseat had described Sarah in the same way as Sarah has just described her as the love of her life. She was very happy. She was modeled about Sarah. She loved Derry she had become completely sort of acclimatized to the place. She described it has having been an immigration, even though she came from Belfast, which is only, you know, a couple of hours drive throwed. She was. A very positive person. She you know, she was only eight when the Good Friday agreement was signed in. It's so poignant that she died on the twenty first of Arthur AL, it was supposed to have brought peace, but Larry was very aware of the fact that the legacy of the conflict cast, very long dark shadow over her generation, and she'd written about things like, you know, the high rate of suicides among particularly young men Hoya had been working with her recently was that she had been sending me chapters of a book about young people who had disappeared during the conflict people loss in the margins during the troubles wasn't her sole concern as she was an LGBT activist and presented her us at a Ted talk within the LTV community. We have a saying we tell people we tell them it gets better. And what I realized was that it gets better for some of us. It gets better for those of us who live long enough to see it get better. She was referring to the fact that there is a very high suicide rate under unserious mental health issue for young gay people in Northern Ireland your listeners need to know, without you know, Northern Ireland is extremely backwards in terms of of recognizing the rights of gay people. So she was she was described by leader of the algae BT Q movement in Derry her adopted city as being a hero for out community. And and she walls, you know, she just gave herself wholeheartedly to to every Kohl's that she felt was for the good police are saying her death was linked to terrorism. But there's no suggestion. She was targeted right. I mean, do do you have any sense of how she died while whoever fired the shots was probably not targeting her. It was an act of utter recklessness. Under sarah. Era, her partner described Barbara say that these people claim to speak for the Irish Republic. They claim to be commemorating the Easter rising on on the don't represent a thing. Like thoughts lira represented that Lehrer represented Irish freedom, and you know, what's Northern Ireland could be if people were left to live creatively loving lives. So on this anniversary of the Good Friday agreement. What does this tragedy in this whole police operation? Tell us about the strength of the Good Friday agreement. Well, I mean, there's been a lot of things indicating that Good Friday agreement is in deep deep trouble. You know, we haven't had a government in Northern Ireland for two years on.
