“REFUSE Eire Money BOYCOTT all her goods…” -Ulster Constitution Defence Committee poster from the 1970s. June 10, 2011


A poster from the Ulster Constitution Defence Committee from the 70s with the quaint words
“Loyalists and Protestants. Hit Eire and Lynch where they will feel it most. REFUSE Eire Money BOYCOTT all her goods.To trade with Ulster’s enemies is Treachery. No Surrender.”

According to the CAIN website

The UCDC was established in 1966 and was made up of a committee of 13 with Ian Paisley as the head of the committee. The UCDC was the means by which Paisley led the protest against the reforms of Terence O’Neill in the late 1960s. The UCDC was also the ruling body of the Loyalist paramilitary style grouping the Ulster Protestant Volunteers (UPV).
