On this day, 4 July 1998, best friends Lin Newborn, 24, an African-American skinhead, and Daniel Shersty, 20, a white US air force serviceman, both members of Anti-Racist Action were murdered in the desert outside Las Vegas by a gang of white supremacists.

One neo-Nazi was swiftly jailed, and others were convicted in 2012 for the murders. Lin was survived by his young son.

The entrance passage of the #BrynCelliDdu tomb aligns with the #sunrise at #mid-summer, casting light on the stone-lined chamber within.
While #megalithic monuments like Bryn Celli Ddu and Stonehenge in England were once said to have been built by #Druids, modern archaeologists have concluded that they were built thousands of years before the Celts even arrived in Britain.

31 years ago, on this day in 1988, American warship USS Vincennes shot down the Iranian passenger plain Airbus A300 IR655 that was in it's daily flight route from Bandar Abbas to Dubai, killing all 290 passenger ans crew including 66 children.


We should never forget the atrocities of the past or we are doomed to see them repeated again in our lifetime.

Still remember the day, my brothers family took that same route several times before the incident and it was like a nightmare to follow.

US was there to support Saddam and stop Iran at any cost, the US War ship was deep inside Iranian water and the plane was climbing on a pré planned commercial route with an active civilian IFF at 14000 feet when it was attacked, not an F14 faking IFF moving toward US warship as they told the world.

This is one of those stories we will never forget. Specially the indifference of the world toward this war crime, and the fact the captain received a medal for his action in Persian Gulf shortly after her murdered 290 innocent people.

On this day, 17 June 1971, construction workers in New South Wales initiated a "green ban", refusing to build luxury houses over Kelly's Bush, the last open space in a suburb. Local women had been campaigning to save the park.

Despite a management threat to use scabs, the builders and residents won, and Kelly's Bush remains an open public reserve today.

A wave of green bans subsequently began which stopped billions of dollars of harmful development over the next four years.

This is a short history of these events: https://libcom.org/history/articles/kellys-bush-green-ban

Virtually Visit Anne Frank’s childhood home on Google Arts and Culture


“I hope I can entrust you with everything that I haven't been able to share with anyone, and I hope you will be a great support to me." These are the first words Anne Frank wrote in the diary she received on her thirteenth birthday. Three weeks later, the Frank family went into hiding. Since then, the story of Anne has moved people across the globe who want to learn more about her life.

Google Arts & Culture has worked with the Anne Frank House to shed a light on Anne’s life at Merwedeplein 37-2 in Amsterdam, where her family lived before they went into hiding. In honor of what would have been her 90th birthday, you can explore an online exhibit and indoor Street View imagery of Anne’s childhood home. For the first time it will be possible to view all rooms of the flat to get a unique insight into Anne Frank's home that has been restored to its original 1930s style, including the bedroom that she shared with her sister Margot.

NAVAJO DICTIONARY

Navajo Code Talkers

World War II Fact Sheet


Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Peleliu, Iwo Jima: the Navajo code talkers took part in every assault the U.S. Marines conducted in the Pacific from 1942 to 1945. They served in all six Marine divisions, Marine Raider battalions and Marine parachute units, transmitting messages by telephone and radio in their native language a code that the Japanese never broke.

The idea to use Navajo for secure communications came from Philip Johnston, the son of a missionary to the Navajos and one of the few non-Navajos who spoke their language fluently. Johnston, reared on the Navajo reservation, was a World War I veteran who knew of the military's search for a code that would withstand all attempts to de... Show more...

D-DAY 75th ANNIVERSARY


From the Musée Mémorial in Bayeux, France: 1944 Bataille de Normandie

I found this photo to be particularly poignant and moving.

I gazed a long time at this photo and wished I knew the backstory behind it.

Who are the people in it? Where was it taken? Who took the photo, etc. Who is the dead soldier?
As I studied this photo, I noticed the footwear of the elderly woman and kneeling gentleman. Both appear to be wearing wooden shoes. Could this photo have been taken in Holland? Belgium?
And why was the figure standing to the right of the photo airbrushed/scratched out?




#WW2 #DD75 #history #France
 
@appaloosa A few years back, when I stayed at a coastal B&B in the little town of Saint-Laurent-sur-Mer in Normandy, FR; one of the most poignant conversations I remember, was with an older gentleman from Belgium.

As we both stood by the seawall gazing out over sand and shore, he told me: being here today and seeing people, tourists, (and even locals) playing, sunbathing, swimming, cavorting, etc, on the clean sand of this historic beach felt oddly surreal and melancholy. If it weren’t for the conspicuous monuments and signage here and there, you’d never suspect this was a place of carnage, blood, and horror on that fateful day, so many years ago.

D-DAY 75th ANNIVERSARY


This day in #history

Visual artist Andy Moss of the Sand In Your Eye collective, created "The Fallen Project" - a visual representation of the thousands of lives lost (allies, civilians, & German forces) during the D-day Normandy assault. Together with local citizens from the Normandy coast of Arromanches and volunteers, they drew 9000 people in the sand.

The objective was to enable onlookers, tourists, visitors and citizens alike to visualize what the actual human loss was like.
