West Belfast Walking tour - Divis Tower: big brother's watching you

Walking tour partendo dal City hall fino al cuore della Belfast Ovest Repubblicana.

All'inizio di Belfast Ovest c'è la famigerata Divis Tower,

Le forze di sicurezza occuparono gli ultimi 2 piani come osservatorio negli anni '70, e continuarono ad usarlo per monitorare i movimenti delle persone fino a che fu decommissionato nel 2005.

 

Due to IRA in the area, the British Army constructed an observation post on the roof in the 1970s and occupied the top two floors of the building. At the height of The Troubles, the army was only able to access the post by helicopter.
