Thousands of people gathered to march for the last time in an annual event commemorating Bloody Sunday in Londonderry/Derry. Following the publication of the Saville report, majority of the families of the victims killed in 1972 by the British soldiers, agreed that this march would be the last one.
Some families, however, did not agree with this decision.
The march`s route was from Creggan to Guildhall Square. Originally, the 1972 civil rights march was supposed to end in Guildhall Square, but, according to the Saville report, “British paratroopers lost control”. Fourteen were shot dead.
For years families of the deceased ones were fighting for the truth being acknowledged.
Londonderry/Derry is still haunted with sectarianism. Bomb alerts are quite common.
In March Derry City Council agreed to build another peace wall ( somewhat ironic name for a separation barrier dividing Protestant and Catholic communities) in the interface area, Lisnagelvin.
