Description

Folded leaflet issued by Ulster Vanguard entitled 'Government Without Right.' Vanguard produced this leaflet in the wake of the suspension of the Northern Ireland Parliament and the introduction of Direct Rule from Westminster in March 1972. Vanguard argue that the UK government had acted illegally by unilaterally suspending the Stormont Parliament and that Direct Rule did not have the consent of people in Northern Ireland.
