10 Of The Deadliest Riots Of All Time
Romanian Peasants’ Revolt
The Romanian Peasants’ Revolt of 1907 was a disturbing time. Beginning in March of 1907, rioters spread throughout the southern half of the country. The government folded, unable to handle the mess. The Liberals sent 100,000 men to crush those who rioted, killing 11,000 in the process.
“The Bloody Week”
“The Bloody Week,” which occurred in Paris in 1871, caused the National Guard to tackle those who were rioting in the streets. In total, 40,000 were arrested, 20,000 civilians died in the gunfire, and around 750 government soldiers were killed.
