Ivan Cooper

  • I just want to say this to the British Government... You know what you've just done, don't you? You've destroyed the civil rights movement, and you've given the IRA the biggest victory it will ever have. All over this city tonight, young men... boys will be joining the IRA, and you will reap a whirlwind.

Chief Supt. Lagan

  • You call that minimum force?


Reporter: Mr. Cooper, what do you say to those people that might be joining the IRA, and what message do you want to give them?
Ivan Cooper: I feel very ill-equipped to do any preaching to them after today.
