Bloody Sundays. What makes both bloody days so homicidal, a day with so much despair that causes mental wreckage so great to the extent of the title ‘Bloody’, different? Here we will find out the black, white and gray area of the day that had still remained a horror of the history.
Bloody Sunday in 1905, the earlier Sunday, was a declaration from the holy spirit to the great change of the monarchy. In the twenty-second of January, continuous massive waves of a powerless unjustified group consisted with the estimation of fifteen thousand people, led by the priest Georgy Gapon broke out in St. Petersburg, the former capital city of Russia. With discontent and fear from the defeated war, the Russo-Japanese war, finally broke out in front of the palace of Russia caused the chief of the imperial force, Grand Duke Vladimir, to command with unease and dismay, ordered the fire out the demonstrators from the palace. The death of 100 marchers has caused great consequences to the Tsar and his indecisive subordinates.
Bloody Sunday. A renowned day to the people of Northern Ireland was brought by the British troops. The 21 soldiers who fired their weapons in response to the raging protesters, all Northern Catholics, killing as much as 13 and leaving 17 wounded marchers. On the way to the city center, blockades were prepared for the thousands that had gathered for the rally organized by the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association. With minds to change the newly introduced law by the government that gives authorities the power to imprison people without trial- internment.
All things considered, both Bloody Sunday was a massacre against people who fought for their rights and both massacres revolved around the ideology, intelligence, and ability as a leader of the country. The Bloody Sunday in Russia has more casualties which show that people are more determined for the change that people no longer fear death. On the other hand, you can also argue that Russia’s capitalism is also a big contribution to encourage the army to fires more, while as Bloody Sunday in Northern Ireland had fewer casualties because of the government at that time were having mercy. Nevertheless, both Bloody Sundays have caused the unjustified souls in the underworld to sigh in relief by the revolution caused by their death that had changed a whole country.
