United Statesn 30 January 1972, soldiers from the British Army's 1st Parachute Regiment opened fire on
unarmed and peaceful civilian demonstrators in the Bogside, Derry, Ireland, near the Rossville
flats, killing 13 and wounding a number of others. One wounded man later died from illness
attributed to that shooting.
The march, which was called to protest internment, was "illegal" according to British
government authorities. Internment without trial was introduced by the British government on
August 9, 1971.
The British-government-appointed Widgery Tribunal found soldiers were not guilty of shooting
dead the 13 civilians in cold blood.
Thirty-five years later and still no justice.
