Abstract

This chapter will explore the stories of people engaging in peaceful and violent political protest during the “Troubles” in Northern Ireland and how the peace process and the creation of a space to change play out in these personal accounts. The stories proffered begin before people have become active in the conflict that is playing out on the streets of Belfast and Londonderry. It will follow the impact their new agency has for the story tellers and then explore the role of the changes brought about by the peace process have on their stories and how these societal changes allow people to change their stories and begin to tread backwards into a more civilianized pre-conflict life. However, their lives are changed, they are forever politicized and their new story is bound both to their past and the legacy of the conflict.
