Peace People campaigner Betty Williams (centre, in white coat), talks with a group of people outside St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast city centre in the 1980s.
The Peace People campaign was formed in 1976 after three children were killed in West Belfast. The children died when an IRA man's car went out of control after he was shot dead at the wheel by a British soldier.
