News: Birmingham Declared Open City

1st December 1988: Local news stations reported a decision by Birmingham City Council to declare Birmingham an "open city" and a "demilitarised population centre" in an effort to not become embroiled in the increasing violence sweeping across the Republic of Britain. The Republican Government responded by declaring the move illegal and the Home Office issued orders to West Midland Police to arrest the ring leaders.
