WOODS: "One of the founders of the movement, Mrs. Betty William, had travelled with a large contingent of supporters from Northern Ireland to lead the rally. Church leaders in Liverpool took part too. The organisers are hoping this will be the first of a series of meetings and marches for peace in English and Scottish cities".

Background: Friday (17 September) was another day of trouble in Northern Ireland with a series of hijackings and bombings. No-one was injures. But the incidents didn't deter the newly formed Northern Ireland's Women's Movement from going ahead with its first peace rally to be held on the English mainland. It was held on Saturday (18 September) at Liverpool and more than 5000 people took part.
SYNOPSIS: One of the bombs damaged a small tool factory near Lisburn.
There was extensive damage but the firm had been given a half-hour warning. In another incident police defused a five-pound bomb left in a public house in the Shankill Road area. But nothing was going to stop the embroyo peace movement from spilling into England with its message of hope. BBC reporter Peter Woods.
