Bloody Sunday, Irish Republican Army

Description

This primary document shows the lengths the Stormont government went to in order to not blame the British Parachute Regiment for beginning the shooting on January 30, 1972. This document claims the Irish Republican Army (IRA) had been active for two weeks before the march, and this group planned on using the crowd as a distraction to attack the British soldiers.
