Sean MacBride Interview

Here's a 1983 interview with Sean MacBride by John Pilger, One of the founders of Amnesty International and a laureate of the Nobel Peace Prize, MacBride is a major figure in international human rights and in twentieth century Ireland. As foreign minister, from 1948 to 1951, he participated in the drafting of the European Convention on Human Rights. The fascinating interview is about 30 minutes long. MacBride talks about his boyhood, as an IRA soldier, and moves to such topics as the Vietnam War, nuclear disarmament and the troubles in Northern Ireland.
