Transcript of Amritsar Massacre
By: Martin Matsudaira
What is the
What happened during the massacre?
Why is this important?
The Amritsar Massacre is an event that happened in the year of 1919 in Amritsar, in the garden,Jallianwala Bagh in India in a British colony that included the british troops and the people of India
What caused this massacre to happen?
The citizens of India were under the control of the British army. They changed a lot of things that changed how India ran.
This change caused many middle-class people to become poor and also caused famines.
The British were making India become more expensive and many people couldn't afford things for their life.
(Not from the Amritsar Massacre)
There was a Baisakhi Fair taking place
and many people gathered in a group for a protest against the british power.
Without a warning , the british troops (50 soldiers) came in with weapons. And shot many round of ammo to the crowd of people.
The crowd was packed together because some
it would save many people like a shield.
Over 350 people had been killed and over 1,000 people were severely injured. And the others ran away from the crowd to save themselves or their family.
This shows how laws can change countries such as, healthcare, taxes, economy, and our own rights.
