Talk:Bloody Sunday

It is a great over-simplification to say that the Bloody Sunday events in Derry were sparked by a "peaceful Irish march for freedom". This omits the fact that the Irish in question were Catholic Irish, at odds with Protestant Irish, and that the big issue in dispute between them was whether the province in which both lived, but where the Protestants were a majority, called Ulster, was to remain part of Britain, or become part of the Catholic Republic of Ireland. The possibility of IRA provocation should also be addressed, plus the fact that the British government has, over the last several years, conducted an extensive investigation into Bloody Sunday, at great cost.

I could be wrong, but I was certainly under the impression that the march in question was for civil rights, not freedom perse.


The last paragraph is somewhat ambiguous. Which "Bloody Sunday" is the most famous? DanH 15:20, 9 August 2007 (EDT)

Sorry, I was aiming to point to the Bloody Sunday mentioned in the article (i.e. that in Derry) as being the most famous.
