On March 5, 1770, a heated argument broke out between many strong-willed colonists and British soldiers, about the different taxes the British were making the colonist fulfill and how unjust the British parliament was. The argument quickly escalated into a fight and then a so-called massacre, soon to be named The Boston Massacre. Although, there was the killing of colonists, should this event be called a ‘massacre’? In fact, only 5 colonists were killed in the shooting, and many claim that the colonists were not innocent therefore the Boston Massacre was not a massacre. The first reason the event was not a massacre is the colonists were not innocent and did harm the soldiers.
During that day, everyone at school was asking us where we got the shirts, and who all was in it, which made all of us members just feel like we were on cloud nine. That night we wore our shirts proud to Qdoba, getting a few stares from bystanders, but that is what makes America great… I can start whatever I want and with a little bit of hard work and a white t-shirt, I can make it happen. The literal next day is when the entire club began to crumble down. The coaches of the cross country team heard from a few boys who were left out of the club, saying they were never invited. Uh oh, this isn’t good.
The Chicano encountered a great deal of opposition with advocating for their movement, including internal conflict by the cause of infiltrators in the Chicano organizations. For instances, the Chicano movement from 1968-1971 in Los Angeles received massive attacks both physically and socially by the Los Angeles police department (LAPD). Such attacks consisted of the LAPD harassing, intimidating, and arresting individuals by using unnecessary force. To illustrate, in early March of 1970, students at Roosevelt High School located in East Los Angeles participated in a walkout to protest the educational policies. The LAPD reacted to the student walkout by using force to end the protest.
However, Japan disavowed these treaties of war. By attacking Pearl Harbor, indulging in biological warfare, and executing chemical murdering and torturing of prisoners, civilians, and slave laborers, Japan broke the laws of war on many levels. Throughout the war, Japan continued to operate above the law. The Nanking Massacre was an incident in December of 1937, during the Second Sino-Japanese War. The massacre consisted of mass murder by Japanese troops against the residents of Nanjing, the capital of the Republic of China, which lasted for six weeks.

This action that was typically led by college students and through their resolute drive for freedom they were able to lead to the desegregation of restaurants.
Atwood uses allusions to the Old Testament, Cultural Revolution, Salem Witch Trials, and the Taliban to satirize the oppression of women in political, religious and social aspects. Atwood parallels the Cultural Revolution in China to the how the Gilead government gains power and control over the United States. The Chinese communist leader, Mao Zedong launched the Cultural Revolution to assert his control over the Chinese government. Zedong ordered the nation to cleanse themselves of “impure” aspects of Chinese society. This was done by shutting down schools and a massive youth mobilization.
Further, queer individuals protested in front of White House and Pentagon with posters like “Homosexuals Died for Their Country Too” to protest against the anti-gay policies of the U.S. armed forces (114). Once, forty-five people openly walked onto the sidewalks of the White House to demand their rights and call attention to discriminatory federal policies in 1965 (114, 117). Gradually picketing and public demonstrations increased in the first half of 1960s. On July 4, 1965, forty-four men and women joined the first Philadelphia protest – called the “Reminder Day” – at Independence hall to call attention to that the basic democratic rights were denied to many people in the United States simply because of who they loved (146). All these movements queer women have done contributed to the early queer women’s participation in the homophile

In reply, thousands of natives of South Carolina and surrounding states who were attending the rally cheered and said they were ready. Perry added that Jesus "saw corruption, just like today." "We need somebody that 's got the backbone to go to Washington, D.C., and turn over the tables of the money changers, of the corruption, of the greed, that we see in Washington, D.C.," he continued, according to the Texas Tribune. About 600 people sang in a choir at the State House steps during the rally. A resident of Charlotte, Stephan McQuage, told The State that rights of Christians are being "slowly but surely" stripped
BREAKING NEWS from the colonies, last night on March 5, 1770 at the Customs House an altercation between the British Troops and the colonists began, causing the deaths of 5 colonists. Yet, the colonists are no angels, what was supposed to be a small demonstration against the British turned deadly. The colonists are said to have provoked officers, by throwing stones, snowballs, and sticks at them. The history of the Boston, Massachusetts colonists and the British Troops is not good all. This is because ever since the British Troops were placed in the colony to enforce the Townshend Acts, the colonists have been on edge, but the peace has been kept until now.
Four killed, nine injured. They were simply trying to make a difference. In early 1970, following President Richard Nixon’s address regarding the American invasion of Cambodia, students across the nation decided to get involved. One protest, in particular, at Kent State University in Kent, Ohio, turned into a violent protest due to the presence of guards and police, along with other figures of authority. Because it resulted in the loss of the lives of four innocent protesters on May 4, 1970, the open fire of the Ohio National Guard on Kent State University students was not justified.
On March 5, 1770 a street fight occurred between a mob of Boston citizens and British soldiers.
