BLOODY SUNDAY

10/29/02

The Tampa premiere of the new film BLOODY SUNDAY. In this segment we hear from Don Mullan, author of EYEWITNESS BLOODY SUNDAY. He was in the crowd on Sunday, January 30th, 1972 - when British troops fired on an unarmed crowd of Catholic human rights demonstrators. Twenty-seven people were shot, 13 died. The new film is shot in documentary style and raises still unanswered questions about the shootings and subsequent investigations by the British government. The shootings increased the militant activities of Catholics in Northern Ireland who were trying to end housing and employment discrimination.
