in our January activist interview for the Irish Left Archive Podcast, we spoke to left activist, Vincent Doherty.

We discuss his politicisation growing up in Derry; his role in the Derry Republican movement and perspective on the Officials and the divisions which led to the formation of the IRSP; his work with the IMG and Troops Out Movement in England; joining Peoples' Democracy and his central role in the H-Blocks campaign during the 1981 hunger strikes; his move towards Sinn Féin and the influence of People’s Democracy; and his perspective on the contemporary left in Ireland.
