Jan. 30, 1972: 50 years ago in Derry, the British Parachute Regiment shot dead 13 Civil Rights Protesters with a 14th dying some weeks later from wounds. This was British states response to a peaceful demand for democratic reform.
The same parachute regiment had murdered 9 innocent people in Ballymurphy the previous August in Belfast.
No one has ever been charged with these murders. We remember victims of British imperialism in Ireland, we do so by struggling to end the imperialist control over Ireland.
