This chapter examines some of the positives taken by anti-H-block groups in Northern Ireland in 1978 and 1979. It highlights the success of the Coalisland Anti-Repression Conference, which was considered by the Left and many Relatives Action Committee (RAC) activists as a breakthrough and was regarded as the first real attempt to build a broadbased opposition to criminalisation. This chapter also considers the other factors that sent a blow to the British government's propaganda war.
