President Biden was in Ireland this week to mark the 25th anniversary of the Good Friday Agreement, the U.S.-brokered peace deal that ended three decades of fighting in Northern Ireland, known as the Troubles. Biden’s visit comes less than two months after British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak announced he had reached a deal with the European Union on post-Brexit trade rules for Northern Ireland, and a year after the British Parliament introduced a bill to provide amnesty to former British soldiers and individuals involved in the Northern Ireland conflict. Human rights experts have accused the bill of undermining the Good Friday Agreement. We speak to renowned activist Eamonn McCann, a former member of the Northern Ireland Assembly.
