50th Anniversary of the Escalation of the Northern Ireland Conflict through the Bogside Massacre (August 12-14, 1969)

Between August 12 and 14, 1969, severe street battles take place in Derry, Northern Ireland’s second largest city. The long smouldering conflicts between Protestants and Catholics finally escalate. Following the example of the US-civil rights movement a civil rights movement had grown in Northern Ireland by the end of the 1960s. The movement’s aim is to fight the ongoing discrimination of the catholic population. For example, the composition of the Derry city parliament had been manipulated in favour of the protestant minority by means of Gerrymandering, which is the deliberate shaping of the boundary of electoral constituencies. 

When the protestant fraternal society “Apprentice Boys” decides to pass through the catholic neighbourhood of Bogside during its annual parade to commemorate the 1689 Siege of Derry against the occupation by the Catholic King James II of England, many residents sense a provocation. A riot erupts between marchers and “Bogsiders”.  

During the hostilities, which last for three days, the local police utilises CS gas, water cannons and armoured cars. Thousands of people are injured. When the government in London sends military units the situation in Derry finally calms down. However, by now the riots have spread to other cities in Northern Island, especially in Belfast, the largest city of, where several people die.
