From the file of The Jonestown Massacre -
Although it is widely known as the Jonestown Massacre, the series of strange events that resulted in the deaths of 912 people in the middle of a jungle in Guyana were, for the most part, a mass suicide. The majority of the more than 900 people who died there on November 18th, 1978, took their own lives willingly. Those few who had second thoughts either got lucky and sneaked out of sight through the remote jungle, were shot dead, or were forced to drink the poison by the cult's guards. It was an act of "revolutionary suicide" that left the world in shock.
