Bloody Sunday 1450: The march begins

The demonstration was held in protest at the policy of internment without trial. It was organised by the Northern Ireland Civil Rights Association. About 10,000 people gathered in the Creggan Estate planning to walk to Guildhall Square in the centre of the city, where a rally would be held. The march itself was illegal because the Stormont Parliament had banned all such protests.
