4 mai 1970/May 4, 1970: Ohio Massacre

"The Kent State shootings, also known as the May 4 massacre or Kent State massacre,occurred at Kent State University in the city of Kent, Ohio, and involved the shooting of students by members of the Ohio National GuardMay 4, 1970. Four students were killed and nine others wounded, one of whom suffered permanent paralysis.on Monday,

Some of the students who were shot were protesting the American invasion of Cambodia, which President Richard Nixon announced in a television address on April 30. However, other students who were shot were merely walking nearby or observing the protest at a distance.

There was a significant national response to the shootings: hundreds of universities, colleges, and high schools closed throughout the United States due to a student strike of eight million students, and the event further divided the country along". (From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)

 



Lyrics

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?

Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.
