Survivor and Liberator: Virtual Talk with LA Museum of the Holocaust: 11a, Holocaust Survivor Ernie Gross and Dachau Liberator Don Greenbaum. Ernie Gross was born in 1929 in Turtz, Romania. In 1944 he and his family were deported to a ghetto and then to Auschwitz, where Ernie’s parents and younger siblings perished. In 1945 he was sent to Dachau, where he was liberated by American troops on April 29, 1945. One of those US soldiers was Don Greenbaum, who served in World War II as a forward observer, operating on the front lines. Don earned a Purple Heart in Germany on Nov. 9, 1944, and after his release from an army hospital, fought in the Battle of the Bulge. Under the command of General George Patton’s Third Army, his division was among the first Americans to liberate Dachau. More than 60 years later, Ernie and Don met in Philadelphia, where they both live. We are honored to have them speak to us via Zoom. http://www.lamoth.org/news–events/events/grossgreenbaum/

ADDITIONAL ITEM NOT IN PRINT EDITION

Justice for Andres Guardado! Murder charges for Deputy Vega!, 12n-3p, Compton Sheriff’s Station, 301 S Willowbrook Ave Compton, 90220.

All forces unite to demand justice for Andres Guardado!

The independent autopsy proves Andres was shot 5 times in the back. This is cold blooded murder without justification. District Attorney Lacey must prosecute to the fullest extent of the law, as would be applied to anyone else who murdered an 18 year old kid while he was doing his job.

Sheriff Villanueva has attempted to cover-up the murder to protect deputy Vega, placing a “security hold” on the medical examiner’s autopsy to conceal it from public view. Villanueva has refused to provide the Office of the Inspector General evidence to conduct an independent review. We demand full release of the official autopsy and all video evidence of the murder. Sheriff Villanueva has violated the confidence of his office and must resign.

SUN – JUL 12

 

Committee for Racial Justice presents: REIMAGINING PUBLIC SAFETY, 6:30 -8:30p zoom meeting. If you are NOT already on the CRJ email list and wish to join the zoom meeting, call Joanne at 310-422-5431. Racist police violence is in the spotlight. Two portions of our July workshop will focus on that. Jennifer  Rojas, a Policy Advocate and Organizer from ACLU will discuss the problem of reluctant compliance on the part of police with AB 392, which requires attempts by officers to de-escalate as opposed to using force as a first option. Lex Steppling, Director of Campaigns & Policy for Dignity & Power Now, will discuss the movement to defund police and reimagine public safety. Several months ago, CRJ sponsored a film on lynching in this country. The film helped define the context within which we took seriously an incident at Malibu HS soon afterwards in which white students taunted a black student with a noose. This incident has not been resolved, and Robbie Jones will update us on this situation. In Palmdale, on June 10, a Black man, Robert Fuller was found hanging from a tree. More hangings have occurred in other parts of the country: a young Black man in a public park in NYC and a Black teen found on the grounds of an elementary school in Houston. Our fourth speaker, Trudy Goodwin, will discuss this tragic and terribly concerning series of events.
