  6. 6. I can't believe the news today. I can't close my eyes and make it go away. How long, how long must we sing this song? How long? How long? 'Cos tonight we can be as one, tonight. Broken bottles under children's feet. Bodies strewn across the dead end streets. But I won't heed the battle call. It puts my back up, puts my back up against the wall. Sunday, bloody Sunday. Sunday, bloody Sunday. SUNDAY BLOODY SUNDAY And the battle's just begun. There's too many lost, but tell me who has won? The trenches dug within our hearts, And mothers, children, brothers sisters torn apart. Sunday, bloody Sunday. Sunday, bloody Sunday. How long, how long must we sing this song? How long? How long? 'Cos tonight we can be as one. Tonight, tonight. Sunday, bloody Sunday. Sunday, bloody Sunday.

His actions conflict with hard-line IRA members who have no interest in a "peaceful" response, as well as the military men responsible for keeping the peace who are led by Major General Robert Ford (Tim Pigott-Smith) and Brigadier Patrick Maclellan (Nicholas Farrell). By the end of the day, the military will fire on the protestors and kill 13 people.

  15. 15. Larry Mullen Jr., drums Bono, lead singer and songwriter The band consists of The Edge, lead guitar, keyboards, vocals Adam Clayton, bass guitar The band formed in Dublin, Ireland, in 1976 U2 story U2 has been perhaps the biggest music act in the world since the late 1980s to the current day
  16. 16. The IRA sent a threat to U2 that if they continued their campaign they would be kidnapped. The band continued anyway The band's popular 1983 song "Sunday Bloody Sunday" commemorated the slaughter of innocent civilians during the Irish troubles It called for a renunciation of violence Throughout the 1980s the band used this song to campaign against the Irish Republican Army's (IRA) efforts to raise money to fuel continued armed conflict
  17. 17. U2 continues their work for charity and social action: they promoted the Northern Ireland Peace Accords they played in devastated Sarajevo following the war there they helped bolster the shaky economy of New York City by playing there following the September 11 terrorist attacks
  18. 18. Bloody Sunday Bloody Sunday was the culmination of several years heightened tensions In the ‘50s and ‘60s the Catholics suffered social deprivation, with large unemployment and lack of political representation They didn’t have the same rights as the Protestants The IRA emerged from the civil unrest and started a campaign against the British Army and government
  19. 19. Loyalists also organised paramilitary groups and declared war on the IRA The situation began chaotic. The Prime Minister decided to send British troops in an effort to maintain peace The Civil Rights Association, a Catholic movement to attempt to combat discrimination by the Protestant majority in Northern Ireland, against the Catholics, organised a march
  20. 20. Some members of the crowd threw stones at the army which escalated, according to some sources, into a more serious disturbance 13 of these people died on the day, one other perished later from his wounds The armed forces opened fire. They hit 26 people March began peacefully but tension rose as the marchers were prevented from going further by an army blockade
  21. 21. Why the armed forces opened fire is the subject of much debate Many of the protestors and independent eyewitnesses suggest that the armed forces opened fire without any provocation An alternative explanation is that they panicked. The paratroops regiment thought they were under attack from the IRA
