Derry's Bloody Sunday at 50: Beyond the Silence

Bloody Sunday Trust Uploaded by Kate McCabe
On Sunday, January 30, 1972, as an anti-internment march in Derry drew to an end, British paratroopers attacked the marchers, shooting dead 13 unarmed civilians, six of them still legally children, and wounding another 18, one of whom subsequently died. This marked the end of the civil rights campaign in Northern Ireland. On the 50th anniversary of Bloody Sunday, Paul Doherty, whose father Patrick was killed that day, will discuss what the families endured in the aftermath of the tragedy and what they ultimately achieved in their justice campaign over the next 50 years. In person & online.
