The end result of those protests was gunfire by police leaving four dead and nine others wounded. Of course not all protests end like this but this is an exception that is a memorable and tragic moment in American history. The reason that the Kent state students were protesting was in response to the Cambodian campaign that was presented by president Nixon the day before. The Cambodian campaign was basically another invasion
The laws they fought against were laws against Christianity. People in this region wanted to maintain their religion but this was not an option because the government took it away from them (Document C). More rebels joined in the fight and soon enough in some areas the rebels almost wiped out government officials. The rebels even killed some of the government (Document D). Many people throughout the Reign of Terror were killed by a guillotine.
Because of all these happening, in 1931, when china ask for help but Canada didn’t help. So when Japan invaded Canada and many countries refused to help. Canada should have helped china. Because of this many innocent people involved to the war and died. Another example is that in May, 1939.
Thousands were injured and killed by Chinese soldiers, despite the efforts of people who tried to stand against them. To examine the Unknown Rebel, it helps to see him in context. Many people have suggested that he may have been a provincial Chinese man visiting Beijing for business or to visit family, not a protester. Video footage suggests that he
At the campus of Kent State University on May 4, 1970 protest against the war had erupted. The 300 students that had opposed the war so intensely that they had caused riot like damage in a nearby town only to return to campus to burn down the R.O.T.C. building. The local governor had ordered 750 National Guardsmen to the campus to “Eradicate the problem” also saying that the protesters were the “worst type of people we harbor in America” (Davidson−Gienapp−Heyrman−Lytle−Stoff, 2005, p. 2). After the protestors had refused to disperse after being ordered to do so the guardsmen had fired into the crowd killing four students and wounding nine others.
Apart from the colonist being harassed with taxes, their trade with all parts of the world except Britain was another reason why the colonists wrote the Declaration of Independence. The illegal imposition of rules over their trade and production, commonly known as the Navigation Acts, which have been pressed on them for over a century and made worse by the Sugar Act and Townshend Acts was controlled once the Declaration of Independence was written and signed. Furthermore, the colonists were being deprived in many cases. The Boston Massacre was when a mob of 50 colonists gathered to protest against the officials. As fists and clubs began flying a soldier dropped dead, this forced the soldiers to fire, killing five civilians and wounding six.
A lot of people have died because of police officers and the reasons are clear, it is due to criminal activities they have undertaken and then refuse arrest which later causes a spark to ignite between the authorities and the civilians. Other times it is proved that police men just take advantage of their rights and brutally use force against citizens. Are police officers considered fair or brutal towards people? No one can deny that police officers have abused of their authority specially in big cities. Amadou
The Khmer Rouge killed basically killed everyone that was intelligent so that no one would over power them. The common people that were not killed were all gathered together and had a living arrangement. Pol Pot abused his power to oppress the people and gain more power. Throughout the four years about two million Cambodians died
Civil disobedience is basically a professional way to disobey laws or commands given by a government. It is commonly known as a non-violent resistance against the government, not always though. It is seen in every country around the world. Even now in South Americas Venezuela civil disobedience is seen every day with the ongoing war against a secret communist government. Citizens are out in the streets protesting for their rights but in return they are getting killed and beaten for not obeying government commands.
This was pivotal to the survival of the CCP as they needed to increase their numbers. Furthermore, one of the only reasons the CCP managed to survive the GMD's encirclement campaigns was because Mao decided to ignore Comintern orders and flee to the mountains of Jiangxi at the end of 1927. This shows how determined Mao was and how he strained to achieve CCP's survival. Without Mao's independent thinking, the CCP would almost certainly have been in chaos and would have been wiped out. Moreover, Mao Zedong's ability to understand the Chinese people - especially the peasants who accounted for 440 million people out of the 500 million people living in
