La Guerra Sucia La Guerra Sucia is the worst war in Argentina’s history. The war started in 1974 and ended around 1983. During this period military and security forces known as the Argentine Anticommunist Alliance (Triple A) hunted down and killed left-wing guerrillas, political dissidents, and anyone believed to be associated with socialism. 30,000 plus people disappeared and taken to detention centers where they were tortured and eventually killed. A military coup overthrew Juan Peron and restored Argentine oligarchy in 1955.
Mary Rowlandson’s captivity narrative, A Narrative of The Captivity and Restoration, written with many dominant motifs and different story structuring methods which provide to the overall interpretation of the story. During King Phillips War, Mary Rowlandson and the English explorers in Lancaster, Massachusetts were under attack by the Wampanoag Indians on February of 1675, Rowlandson was one of 25 in the community taken captive and held prisoner for 11 weeks following the attack, to create the captivity account known as “A Narrative of The Captivity and Restoration” Written by Mary Rowlandson. Rowlandson shows extreme anger, hatred, and discomfort towards the Indians in the narrative. She uses motifs such as “othering,” using the Indians food, style, demeanor, and religion as supporting facts to help portray the Indians as a terrible group of uncivilized savages. Using expressions like “savage” and “barbaric” to describe the Indians repetitively.
In Noviembre 6 y 7, Doris Salcedo portrayed a violent event in Colombian history; an attack on the Palace of Justice by M-19 guerrilla forces and counter-attack by the government which lasted 2 days and produced more than 100 deaths. Salcedo developed the piece in 2002, on the 17th anniversary of the event (Sanchez 82) in order to get the public to remember the tragedy. The piece consists on hundreds of chairs, slowly being lowered down from the new Palace of Justice’s roof. Moreover, the large number of chairs hanging from the building’s façade conveys the scale of the massacre that had occurred 17 years earlier (Mengham 10). As can be seen in Images 5 and 6, the chairs, cluttered together, provide a sense of disarray and confusion, which illustrates the general chaotic atmosphere present during the initial siege.
Dade Massacre Lindley Hill Dr. Davis AMH 2020 Final Paper 20 October 2015 The Dade massacre was a battle between the Seminole Indians and United States Army in December of 1835. Named after Francis L. Dade, who was one of the soldiers killed in battle. At the time, the American government was trying to force the Native Americans out of Florida. Most of the tribes ended up leaving, but not willingly. The Seminole tribe gave the American Army a run for their money.
The English colonist who settled in Massachusetts received assistance at first from the local Indians tribes, but by 1675 there had been friction between the English and the Indians for many years. On June 20 of that year, Metacomet, whom the colonists called Philip, led the Wampanoag tribe in the first of a series of attacks on the colonist settlements. The war, known today as King Philip’s War, raged on for more than a year and left three thousand Indians and six hundred colonist dead. Metacomet’s attempt to retain power in his native land failed. Finally he too is killed, and the victorious colonists sold his wife and children into slavery.
Jamestown increased in its defenses. The indian that had warned him (pace) his name was not recorded at all in any way of the accounts. Though legend have named him “chanco”, it might be misidentification. During the Powhatan surprise attack, the tribes attacked a bunch of their smaller communities, also including Henricus and their college for children of natives and settlers. At Martin’s Hundred, they’ve killed way more than half of their population in Wolstenholme Towne where just two houses and part of a church were left still standing.all, the Powhatan tribe killed about four hundred colonists (a third of the population) and they also took 20 women in as captives, Their captives lived their lives and worked hard and tried to be good Powhatan Indians until they died or their ransom took place.
After listening to a few of the oral history interviews and viewing photos from the events that occurred during the 1970 Kent State Shootings, I can’t begin to imagine the true effects of such an occurrence. During the past two decades, I’ve distantly witnessed, via multi-media, numerous acts of massacres on school campuses alone (elementary, high school and college) that resulted in lost lives and immense trauma for all involved. I’m sitting here trying to visualize what it may have been like for all the KS students, facility, and towns people, as well as, the members of the national guard during the weekend of May 1-4, 1970. A colleague of mine, Jane Grote describes it well as she was literally in the middle of it all. She
The group was responsible for 70-80% of civilians killings in Colombia, until the demobilization of the paramilitary group in 2006. They were responsible for, among others, a large amount of displaced people, for social cleansing, and for torturing, kidnapping and murdering anyone that opposed them – such as trade unionists, human rights defenders, community leaders, judges, and ordinary civilians. In 2003, the Administration of president Álvaro Uribe initiated negotiations with the AUC. The Colombian government requested the paramilitary groups to demobilize, in order to restore the rule of law and to monopolize the state’s violence. The paramilitaries saw this as an opportunity to avoid being held accountable for their heinous crimes, or to receive a reduced sentence of maximum eight years in prison.
This is evident because the scroll was not created until one-hundred years after the rebellion occurred. The scroll was illustrated from right to left and is not to be viewed all at once. As the scroll is unraveled from right to left the events that led up to the raid and the burning of the palace are explained. The kidnapping of the current and former emperor is also depicted within the scroll. Furthermore, the scroll describes in great detail about the massive military operation that overthrew the government of Kyoto.
Immediately after graduating high school at sixteen Allende started working as a journalist, one of the first things Allende learned was how to tell the truth through fiction.In 1962 Allende married an engineer named Miguel Frias who she later had a child with named Paula (Allende).When Allende was thirty-one a military coup assassinated President Salvador Allende her uncle and took power in Chile and interrupted the lives of many Chilean citizens including Allende’s. Allende was deeply affected because of her family’s political ties, hours after the military coup took control they began repressing people, torturing people, and killing people. Many ran away to neighboring countries but Allende did not she stayed because she did not exactly know what was going on and because she did not have enough information. Many people were now in tremendous poverty and an immense need for for some form of support, Allende wished she could do something to help those in need but she soon realised that she was only one person and could do next to nothing to help. “I came to believe that any action direct would would mean enormous risk for me and I became so terrified about it that i began to break out in rashes.
Relic hunters soon arrived at the Benders house and started taking everything. An estimated amount of 3,000 people were at the Benders land at once. Once word got out about the Bloody Benders people formed groups to search for any trace of the family, even authorities searched for more than fifty years and did not find anything leading to the Benders. Eventually, Ed York set a 1,000-dollar reward for any information leading to the arrest Benders. Thomas Osborn,

Since the rise of hard rock/ heavy metal in the 1980s, many crimes and deaths have been blamed on the bands (or singers). The Parents Music Resource Center plastered Parental Advisory stickers everywhere, and bands defending their music and themselves from the overly protective parents. Hard Rock/ heavy metal is a scapegoat for those who look for a high murder/ suicide rate. In 2009, Metallica’s “Ronnie” was almost considered for a New Jersey man’s reason to kill his own mother and a young boy. The man‒ coincidentally named Ronald‒ said in his trial that the song was describing his own life.
