I am happy that my father-in-law, Uncle Lawyer, Uncle York and Uncle Van shared World War II stories with our family. They were “True Heroes” to fight for freedom for others when they were denied the same freedoms in America, because of their skin color. Reply Please enter your comment! Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment. The Anatomy of Fear Until the 21st century, the contributions of African-American soldiers in World War II barely registered in America’s collective memory of that war.The “tan soldiers,” as the black press affectionately called them, were also for the most part left out of the triumphant narrative of America’s “Greatest Generation.” In order to tell their story of helping defeat Nazi Germany in my 2010 book, “Breath of Freedom,” I had to conduct research in more than 40 different archives in the U.S. and Germany.When a German TV production company, together with Smithsonian TV, turned that book into a documentary, the filmmakers searched U.S. media and military archives for two years for footage of black GIs in the final push into Germany and during the occupation of post-war Germany.They watched hundreds of hours of film and discovered less than 10 minutes of footage. This despite the fact that among the 16 million U.S. soldiers who fought in World War II, there were about one million African-American soldiers.They fought in the Pacific, and they were part of the victorious army that liberated Europe from Nazi rule. Black soldiers were also part of the U.S. Army of occupation in Germany after the war. Still serving in strictly segregated units, they were sent to democratize the Germans and expunge all forms of racism.A soldier paints over a swastika. NARAIt was that experience that convinced many of these veterans to continue their struggle for equality when they returned home to the U.S. They were to become the foot soldiers of the civil rights movement – a movement that changed the face of our nation and inspired millions of repressed people across the globe.As a scholar of German history and of the more than 70-year U.S. military presence in Germany, I have marveled at the men and women of that generation. They were willing to fight for democracy abroad, while being denied democratic rights at home in the U.S. Because of their belief in America’s “democratic promise” and their sacrifices on behalf of those ideals, I was born into a free and democratic West Germany, just 10 years after that horrific war.Fighting racism at home and abroadBy deploying troops abroad as warriors for and emissaries of American democracy, the military literally exported the African-American freedom struggle.Beginning in 1933, when Adolf Hitler came to power, African-American activists and the black press used white America’s condemnation of Nazi racism to expose and indict the abuses of Jim Crow at home. America’s entry into the war and the struggle against Nazi Germany allowed civil rights activists to significantly step up their rhetoric.Langston Hughes’ 1943 poem, “From Beaumont to Detroit,” addressed to America, eloquently expressed that sentiment:“You jim crowed me / Before hitler rose to power- / And you are still jim crowing me- / Right now this very hour.”Believing that fighting for American democracy abroad would finally grant African-Americans full citizenship at home, civil rights activists put pressure on the U.S. government to allow African-American soldiers to “fight like men,” side by side with white troops.The military brass, disproportionately dominated by white Southern officers, refused. They argued that such a step would undermine military efficiency and negatively impact the morale of white soldiers. In an integrated military, black officers or NCOs might also end up commanding white troops. Such a challenge to the Jim Crow racial order based on white supremacy was seen as unacceptable.The manpower of black soldiers was needed in order to win the war, but the military brass got its way; America’s Jim Crow order was to be upheld. African-Americans were allowed to train as pilots in the segregated Tuskeegee Airmen. The 92nd Buffalo Soldiers and 93rd Blue Helmets all-black divisions were activated and sent abroad under the command of white officers.Despite these concessions, 90 percent of black troops were forced to serve in labor and supply units, rather than the more prestigious combat units. Except for a few short weeks during the Battle of the Bulge in the winter of 1944 when commanders were desperate for manpower, all U.S. soldiers served in strictly segregated units. Even the blood banks were segregated.‘A Breath of Freedom’After the defeat of the Nazi regime, an Army manual instructed U.S. occupation soldiers that America was the “living denial of Hitler’s absurd theories of a superior race,” and that it was up to them to teach the Germans “that the whole concept of superiority and intolerance of others is evil.” There was an obvious, deep gulf between this soaring rhetoric of democracy and racial harmony and the stark reality of the Jim Crow army of occupation. It was also not lost on the black soldiers.Women’s Army Corps in Nuremberg, Germany, 1949. Library of CongressPost-Nazi Germany was hardly a country free of racism. But for the black soldiers, it was their first experience of a society without a formal Jim Crow color line. Their uniform identified them as victorious warriors and as Americans, rather than “Negroes.”Serving in labor and supply units, they had access to all the goods and provisions starving Germans living in the ruins of their country yearned for. African-American cultural expressions such as jazz, defamed and banned by the Nazis, were another reason so many Germans were drawn to their black liberators. White America was stunned to see how much black GIs enjoyed their time abroad, and how much they dreaded their return home to the U.S.By 1947, when the Cold War was heating up, the reality of the segregated Jim Crow Army in Germany was becoming a major embarrassment for the U.S. government. The Soviet Union and East German communist propaganda relentlessly attacked the U.S. and challenged its claim to be the leader of the “free world.” Again and again, they would point to the segregated military in West Germany, and to Jim Crow segregation in the U.S. to make their case.Coming ‘home’Newly returned veterans, civil rights advocates, and the black press took advantage of that Cold War constellation. They evoked America’s mission of democracy in Germany to push for change at home. Responding to that pressure, the first institution of the U.S. to integrate was the U.S. military, made possible by Truman’s 1948 Executive Order 9981. That monumental step, in turn, paved the way for the 1954 Supreme Court decision in Brown v. Board of Education.Hosea Williams, World War II Army veteran and civil rights activist, rallies demonstrators in Selma, Ala. 1965. AP PhotoThe veterans who had been abroad electrified and energized the larger struggle to make America live up to its promise of democracy and justice. They joined the NAACP in record numbers and founded new chapters of that organization in the South, despite a wave of violence against returning veterans. The veterans of World War II and the Korean War became the foot soldiers of the civil rights movement in the 1950s and 1960s. Medgar Evers, Amzie Moore, Hosea Williams and Aaron Henry are some of the better-known names, but countless others helped advance the struggle.About one-third of the leaders in the civil rights movement were veterans of World War II.They fought for a better America in the streets of the South, at their workplaces in the North, as leaders in the NAACP, as plaintiffs before the Supreme Court and also within the U.S. military to make it a more inclusive institution. They were also the men of the hour at the 1963 March on Washington, when their military training and expertise was crucial to ensure that the day would not be marred by agitators opposed to civil rights.“We structured the March on Washington like an army formation,” recalled veteran Joe Hairston.For these veterans, the 2009 and 2013 inaugurations of President Barack Obama were triumphant moments in their long struggle for a better America and a more just world. Many never thought they would live to see the day that an African-American would lead their country.To learn more about the contributions of African-American GIs, visit “The Civil Rights Struggle, African-American GIs, and Germany” digital archive. 1 COMMENT You have entered an incorrect email address!

This home has had a series of renovations over the past century; the original Edwardian home was converted into apartments in the 1930s and then a substantial family home in the 1980’s. Our brief was to restore the Art Deco facade, retain the existing footprint and add a third level.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe house is located directly opposite the beach in Middle Park and is constantly filled with beautiful light. Morning sun strikes the garden aspect, and at the end of the day the sun sets across the bay.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe were fortunate and had the opportunity to live in the house for a year during the design process. This experience inspired us to design a series of calm spaces which would be articulated with light.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellThe planning has been carefully considered to create a series of distinct rooms, rather than an open plan. Joinery is placed to create spaces, but still allow views to flow from room to room and then to the horizon.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellMaterials have been selected to provide understated tones within a neutral palette. The neutral colour palette supports the play of light at different times of day. The overall feeling is extremely soft and one feels visually and emotionally connected at all times to the expansive sea, sky and garden views. At the same time the house has a feeling of intimacy & warmth, perfect for family living.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellOur client’s original intention was to demolish the existing house and build a completely new structure. After living in the house for a year, we thought the existing building worked well with the views and light and had a distinct ‘personality’. In short, it would be a shame to demolish a house which had stood for 100 years.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellIn all our projects our view is very much to protect as much of the built environment as possible. Trades that existed 100 years ago, don’t exist anymore, or are considered too expensive. We therefore chose to restore the existing building and protect the craftsmanship of the Art Deco period.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe believe sustainability is about preserving as much as we can without needlessly wasting existing material. So, the most substantial decision regarding sustainability was to work with the existing fabric of the house.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellOnce this decision was made, materials and servicing were all designed around principles of sustainability, including a smart managed hydronic heating system, double glazed windows, and positively shaded windows with curtains and screens.Save this picture!© Derek SwalwellWe selected natural materials such as stone, and stained (not painted) timber, windows are either steel or timber, and not aluminium. Additional ESD attributes include solar hot water booted system, solar pool heating and rainwater harvesting for drip feed garden irrigation systems.Save this picture!First Floor PlanProject gallerySee allShow lessDETAIL Green, May 2012ArticlesPrimary and Secondary School Proposal / RaichdelRioArticles Share Houses Year: Save this picture!© Derek Swalwell+ 36 Share Photographs CopyAbout this officeKerry Phelan Design Office & Chamberlain Javens ArchitectsOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesMelbourneHousesAustraliaPublished on July 18, 2012Cite: “Middle Park House / KPDO” 18 Jul 2012.

Kage publishes annual fundraising salary survey Fundraising recruitment specialists the Kage Partnership have have published their fifth annual salary survey.The survey confirmed that average salaries for fundraisers have increased over the past year in most job categories reflecting annual pay reviews as would be expected in most organisations. However, the wide range of salaries advertised reflects the disparity in pay between organisations in the sector and vacancies at the lower end of the range: these will often remain unfilled or the employer may have to settle for less experienced applicants.In addition, the survey revealed that fundraisers can also drop below average salary levels when a promotion is given and additional responsibilities are taken on without an appropriate increase in pay.

The virtual dismissal of these journalists has exposed the fragility of public media independence and freedom of information.“It is essential that journalists should be able to work without fear of losing their jobs or being prosecuted. Otherwise, self-censorship is likely to spread. These three journalists must be restored to their positions in NBC and the harassment of personnel must stop at once.”Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s government objected to NBC’s coverage of a corruption case allegedly involving the government and its coverage of the recent controversial nationalization of the Ok Tedi mine, 37 per cent of which was owned by the state and 63 per cent was owned by a charity, the Papua New Guinea Sustainable Development Programme (PNGSDP).PNGSDP was created in 2001 after the mine’s owner, BHP Billiton, surrendered its ownership to avoid paying compensation for an unprecedented case of environmental pollution in 1984, when tons of toxic waste were dumped in the River Fly. A major part of PNGSDP’s revenue went to victims of the disaster. Former prime minister Mekere Morauta was fired as its chairman as a result of the nationalization.Mark Davis, an Australian journalist who was the PNGSDP’s communications director, was deported back to Australia yesterday on the government’s orders. He blamed his expulsion on his press releases critical of Prime Minister O’Neill.Michael Asagoni, NBC Radio news editor, and Dick Sorariba and Mulai Robby, executive producers with the NBC television station Kundu 2, were relieved of their posts on 1 November and were assigned to NBC’s archive department. At the same time, two other veteran journalists, Jerry Ginua and Wesley Manuai, were summoned and questioned.The case, which Pacific Media Watch has been following, is all the more worrying as its comes against a backdrop of other disturbing developments for the country’s media.The Australian Associated Press (AAP) closed its bureau in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea’s capital, on 1 November, ending a 60-year presence in the country. The AAP said it took the decision because the bureau was not paying its way. The bureau chief was one of the few foreign correspondents still based in Papua New Guinea.At the same time, the government is reportedly drafting a bill that would restrict the foreign media presence in Papua New Guinea. Like Fiji’s existing Media Industry Development Decree, it would require majority national ownership of news media although it remains to be seen whether this requirement would be limited to TV stations.The media that could be affected to still unknown degrees because they are foreign owned include EMTV, two daily newspapers, the Post-Courier (Australia) and the National (Malaysia), and three radio stations, Nau-FM, Yumi-FM and Legend FM Bikpla (Fiji).

The shuttles will run every ten minutes between Lake, Allen and Sierra Madre stations.The closure will allow engineers working on the Gold Line Foothill Extension project to test and configure train control and signal systems, steps that Metro says are necessary to tie in the existing line to the extension which could start service by mid-September.Other than the affected stations, trains between East L.A. and Lake will follow the normal weekend schedule.Work on the Foothill Extension signal and control systems is apart from the track inspection and repairs that have been going on for over a month and have been the cause of diminished operating hours on the Pasadena Gold Line.Metro says repairs crews have completed work on two of five segments where engineers saw damaged support wires for the overhead power supply system, but work still needs to be done on the tracks between Union Station and Chinatown, South Pasadena and Del Mar, and Allen and Sierra Madre Villa. This is estimated to take a month more or longer.

TAGSairportDelta Airlinesfeaturedlimericknew yorkShannon Advertisement Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival NewsBreaking newsLocal NewsDelta Airlines expands between Shannon and New YorkBy Bernie English – September 30, 2015 1502 by Bernie English [email protected] airport has welcomed the announcement that Delta Airlines is to significantly expand passenger capacity on its JFK service. A statement of behalf of the board said: “The announcement of the introduction of the larger wide-bodied Boeing 767-300 aircraft on Delta Air Lines’ JFK service summer service is a further endorsement of the growing demand for transatlantic seats into Shannon Airport and the popularity of the airport’s US pre-clearance facilities”. To cater for the increased demand, the airline will next summer operate the larger Boeing 767-300 aircraft on the service, resulting in a 25% increase in capacity, or 17,000 additional seats.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Welcoming the announcement, Neil Pakey, CEO, Shannon Group plc said, “Transatlantic services at Shannon have grown year on year since the airport was made independent in 2013 and this latest boost by Delta is further evidence of the strength of that market. As the biggest airline in the world in terms of passenger numbers, Delta’s expansion of their Shanon service to their JFK hub provides further opportunity for global connectivity.“This is excellent news for passengers from this region who want to fly to JFK and beyond but is also excellent news again for the tourism industry here. There has been a considerable transatlantic market rebound generally over recent years but there is a particular demand for services directly into the west of Ireland through Shannon and we are delighted to be able to facilitate this through airline partners such as Delta.“We have a unique tourism product here along the west and south of Ireland and its essential that we have these services to satisfy growing tourism demand. The Wild Atlantic Way has been a stroke of genius for the tourism industry in Ireland and we expect that demand will continue to rise the more people are made aware of all the Wild Atlantic Way has to offer.”Meanwhile, Tourism Ireland warmly welcomed the announcement by Delta Air Lines. It will mean a 25% plus increase in capacity, or 17,000 additional seats. Delta will also add capacity on its JFK to Dublin service from the end of October; and on its Atlanta to Dublin service from the end of May 2016.Niall Gibbons, CEO of Tourism Ireland, said: “The announcement by Delta Air Lines to increase capacity on its routes to Shannon and Dublin is more good news for tourism. We already work very closely with Delta and we look forward to continuing to co-operate with them to maximise the promotion of their flights from the US to Ireland. As an island, the importance of convenient, direct, non-stop flights cannot be overstated – they are absolutely critical to achieving growth in visitor numbers.

The plea has been filed through his counsel Kamini Jaiswal, contending that right of appeal is a Fundamental right, guaranteed under the Indian Constitution and is also guaranteed under International law. It is asserted that permission to challenge the contempt order would act as a vital safeguard against ‘wrongful conviction’ and would truly enable the provision of truth as a defense. Mr. Bhushan has submitted that considering the fact that there is inherent unavoidable conflict of interest in contempt cases, and the fact that liberty of the alleged contemnor is at stake, “it is of utmost importance that certain basic safeguards are designed which would reduce (though not obviate) chances of arbitrary, vengeful and high handed decisions.” The grounds pleaded by Mr. Bhushan are reiterated thus: Violation of Article 21 That the right to appeal against conviction in original criminal cases is a substantive right under Article 21 and flows from principles of natural justice. The absence of such a right thus violates Article 21. This has been affirmed in judgments of this Hon’ble Court. Right of Appeal Right of Appeal is an absolute right according to Article 14(5) of International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) which India has ratified and is therefore binding upon the Indian State. Under ICCPR, first appeal is a right even where trial is by the Highest Court and Review is not a substitute for an appeal. Inherent Bias Contempt proceedings are one in which the injured party (Supreme Court) acts as the prosecutor, the witness and the judge, thereby raising fear of inherent bias. As a judge the power of the Supreme Court to convict and sentence the accused is unlimited and arbitrary. Nemo potestesse simul actor et judex i.e. No one can be at once a suitor and a judge. Thus, there is a need for an intra-court appeal. Contempt proceedings akin to a criminal trial Contempt Proceedings are quasi-criminal in nature, akin to a criminal trial and thus, similar procedural safeguards must apply as in criminal trials. Violation of Article 19(1)(a) The freedom of speech guaranteed under Article 19 can only be restricted/regulated under Article 19(2) by a procedure which is reasonable and stands the test of Articles 14 and 21. Criminal contempt cases are ‘original cases’ Original Criminal Contempt cases are a unique and distinct category of cases. This Hon’ble Court has in the past framed special rules to deal with cases concerning death penalty and has also devised special remedy in the nature of ‘Curative Petition’ against a final judgment of the Supreme Court on certain limited grounds. Truly enable defense of truth Section 13(b) of the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971, provides for truth as a defense. It is possible that a “truth” not accepted by one bench may be accepted by a different or a larger bench or a different court, when the whole matter is re-examined after passage of time. Thus, while the court of first instance may not accept the “truth” as alleged by the accused in a criminal contempt case, it may be accepted as factually correct by a larger or different bench. In a situation where there is no right of appeal, the right of having a fact determined as truth is lost. Equality Violation of Article 14 since it is discriminatory that a person charged with similar criminal contempt of High Court has a right of appeal but a person charged with criminal contempt of Supreme Court has no appeal. I. That neither the Contempt of Courts Act, 1971 nor the Rules to Regulate the Proceedings for Contempt of the Supreme Court prohibit the prayers as sought by the petitioner. It is in fact, in the spirit of the Act to provide for such a procedure.

The Bench of Justice Arun Monga was hearing a plea filed by the Haryana Progressive Farmers Union, alleging that the during the farmers’ protest against the Agriculture Ordinances on September 10, 2020, few unknown persons, some in police uniform and others without, resorted to lathi charge to dispel the crowd. In the said incident, numerous farmers, including many old aged, were allegedly injured by unknown police officials but even the basic medical care was not provided. Justice Monga disposed of the plea as he remarked that no doubt the procedural safeguards envisaged in the DK Basu Guidelines have to be observed by the Police administration, in letter and spirit. He said that he expects the competent authority to look into the matter and pass appropriate orders, “as expeditiously as possible”.Against the backdrop of this judgment, the notice of contempt, through advocate Pardeep Kumar Rapria, alleges lowering of the authority of the High Court by the CM’s statements. It is contended that such conduct culminates into the interference in the administration of justice.”On 10.09.2020, few unknown persons, some in police uniform and others without, resorted to lathi charge on protesting farmers protesting against three agriculture ordinances; at Kurukshetra.The MP/MLAs; even ruling party; including the Haryana Deputy Chief Minister condemned the police’s use of force on agitating farmers and demanded a probe into the incident. MLAs and representative of Dy. C.M. also visited the house of injured and granted financial help”, the notice narrates.It further avers that in view of the above, the farmers’ advocacy group, through a Legal Notice dated 12/09/2020 to the Home Minister, DGP and Secretary, Haryana Govt, Home Department, had sought enquiry into the lathicharge incident; especially by person/s without uniform.In view of the emergent situation of law and problem, the aforesaid farmers’ union had approached the High Court seeking various reliefs including the in-depth enquiry into the incident.Stating that at present the matter is pending for enquiry by DGP Haryana, the notice expresses shock at the CM’s statements made to the media on:21/09/2020; to the effect that:”People need to understand what exactly a lathicharge is. When a magistrate accompanying the police issues orders, the police resort to a lathicharge…””This was merely a one-off incident and does not come under the definition of lathicharge,””I can understand that one has to say certain things to please farmers, but that does not mean one should blow small incidents out of proportion,””When media persons asked: whether there would be a probe into the lathicharge, you made a categorical statement: ‘What I am doing now before you is an enquiry. It has been proven that it was a small incident, where some cops exercised their right to self-defence against people on tractors who tried to harm them physically by running them over. There was no lathicharge. One person in civil dress was holding danda. A person from CIA/Reserved force need not wear uniform. This is not a big incident being blown out of proportion'”, reads the notice.The notice seeks to remind the CM the constitutional position that a person after becoming Chief Minister does not belong to any particular political party; rather he is the head of the State to aid and advise the Governor to run the affairs of a State. “Therefore, while holding a constitutional post you exercise substantial control and influence over the police administration and general administration. My client is shocked at your statement that a person from CIA/Reserved force need not wear uniform”, it is stated.It is advanced that the Supreme Court directions in the DK Basu case would apply with equal force to the other governmental agencies including all police forces, except intelligence agencies. “Hence, your above stated wrong statements; in open press conference; have not only prejudiced the pending enquiry and have sent wrong signal to the police force promoting indiscipline in the police force, but also amounts to lowering the authority of Hon’ble High Court and interference in the administration of justice, in reference to the judgement dated: 18th September, 2020 in CWP-14874-2020”, reads the notice.The notice further casts suspicion on the kind of enquiry that may be conducted by the DGP in view of “the statement of the person holding the constitutional post to the effect that, ‘What I am doing now before you is an enquiry'”. “Does it not amount to usurping the powers of DGP, supposed to conduct in-depth enquiry as per the directions of the Hon’ble High Court?”, it is asked.In view of the above, the farmers’ union has called upon the CM “to save the grace of your constitutional post; by withdrawing your statement reported in media, appearing to be actuated by inadvertence and ignorance and direct the DGP to conduct enquiry without being prejudiced by your statement”. It is urged that the withdrawal of statement may be communicated within a week of receipt of this notice, failing which, the Union shall initiate requisite steps for contempt of court under THE CONTEMPT OF COURTS ACT, 1971.
