4 Marines Killed – White House Releases Statement Wishing Muslims a Happy end to Ramadan

obama2-940x588

This I said below here <Click) This is breaking news. Many are angry and having a go at Obama for releasing a “Happy Last Day Of Ramadan” to Muslims the world over. Now I don’t know what time Obama’s team gave this message to Islam and the times of the shooting, I will however research and find out. For now there are rumors issues have started in other US Cities, for now PLEASE, Rumors, why I am not sharing them. I will leave some Tweets from American’s below, as this story develops. I have asked the SAME question your fellow or Americans have asked below, I have been asking for 18 months to SILENCE. What I was trying to tell the USA <Click) I have no idea if I am right but the proof is staggering

~~Via Breaking911 ~~ All Content below from Breaking911!

The following statement is the first to come out of the White house. It was emailed out and makes no reference to today’s terror attack.

See Below statement:

Michelle and I would like to extend our warmest wishes to Muslims in the United States and around the world celebrating Eid-ul-Fitr. As Muslims mark the end of the month, they are reminded that Ramadan is a time to reflect spiritually, build communally, and aid those in need. While Eid marks the end of Ramadan, it marks a new beginning for each individual – a reason to celebrate and express gratitude on this holiday.

For millions of Muslims, the morning of Eid is marked with the call to prayer echoing through cities and towns across the globe. Millions of people head to local mosques for special Eid prayers followed by festive gatherings, gift exchanges, and feasts among friends, neighbors and families. The diversity of traditions paint the vibrant images we see from around the world capturing the spirit and excitement of Eid – colorful dresses or white garments decorating the masses of people standing in lines for prayer, lanterns and ornaments lighting up bazaars and neighborhoods, intricate henna designs painted on hands of young girls and women, and an abundance of delectable foods and aromatic cuisines.

As Muslim Americans celebrate Eid across America, the holiday is a reminder to every American of the importance of respecting those of all faiths and beliefs. This past year New York City Public Schools announced adding Eid to their official school calendars alongside Christmas, Hanukkah and other holidays – an acknowledgement of the great diversity and inclusiveness that adds to the richness of our nation. During this year’s White House Iftar, I had the opportunity to meet inspiring young Muslim Americans who are leading efforts for greater understanding and unity across diverse communities. Following the Iftar, one of the young attendees helped spearhead an effort that raised more than $75,000 for the churches burned in the wake of the shooting at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, South Carolina. Americans of all faiths and beliefs must stand together to protect our democracy and strengthen our country as a whole.

Michelle and I hope today brings joy to all of your homes, both here in the U.S. and around the world. From my family to yours, Eid Mubarak!

USA: 4 Marines, gunman die- Attack on two military sites #Breaking

4 Marines and Gunman Die in Attack on Two Military Sites
Via: Wochit News on You Tube

~~~ Via: Associated Press~~~

CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) — A gunman unleashed a barrage of fire at a recruiting center and another U.S. military site a few miles apart in Chattanooga on Thursday, killing at least four Marines, officials said. The attacker was also killed.

Federal authorities said they were investigating the possibility it was an act of terrorism, and the FBI took charge of the case.

Authorities identified the gunman as Kuwaiti-born Muhammad Youssef Abdulazeez, 24, of Hixson, Tennessee, though the spelling of his first name was in dispute, with federal officials and records giving at least four variations.

A U.S. official said there was no indication Abdulazeez was on the radar of federal law enforcement before the shootings. The official was not authorized to discuss the case and spoke on condition of anonymity. The shootings took place minutes apart, with the gunman stopping his car and spraying dozens of bullets first at a recruiting center for all branches of the military, then apparently driving to a Navy-Marine training center 7 miles away, authorities and witnesses said. The attacks were over within a half-hour.

In addition to the Marines killed, three people were reported wounded, including a sailor who was said to have been seriously hurt.

“Lives have been lost from some faithful people who have been serving our country, and I think I join all Tennesseans in being both sickened and saddened by this,” Gov. Bill Haslam said. Authorities would not say how the gunman died. FBI agent Ed Reinhold said Abdulazeez had “numerous weapons” but would not give details. “We are looking at every possible avenue, whether it was terrorism, whether it’s domestic, international, or whether it was a simple criminal act,” Reinhold said.

Within hours of the bloodshed, law officers with guns drawn swarmed what was believed to be Abdulazeez’s house, and two females were led away in handcuffs. A dozen law enforcement vehicles, including a bomb-squad truck and an open-sided Army green truck carrying armed men, rolled into the Colonial Shores neighborhood of Hixson, and police closed off streets and turned away people trying to reach their homes.

Abdulazeez graduated from the University of Chattanooga in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering, school spokesman Mike Andrews said. He was a student intern a few years ago at the Tennessee Valley Authority, the federally owned utility that operates power plants and dams across the South.

The U.S. National Counterterrorism Center said it has seen nothing so far to connect Abdulazeez any terrorist organization. But it noted that the Islamic State group has been encouraging extremists to carry out attacks in the U.S., and several such homegrown acts or plots have unfolded in recent months.

The names of the dead were not immediately released. In addition to the wounded sailor, a Marine was hit in the leg but not seriously hurt, and a police officer was shot in the ankle, authorities said.

In Washington, President Barack Obama pledged a prompt and thorough investigation and said the White House had been in touch with the Pentagon to make sure military installations are being vigilant. “It is a heartbreaking circumstance for these individuals who served our country with great valor to be killed in this fashion,” he said.

Vice President Joe Biden likewise said: “Their families have already given a lot to the country, and now this.” The shootings began at the recruiting center on Old Lee Highway, where a shot rang out around 10:30 or 10:45 a.m., followed a few seconds later by more fire, said Sgt. 1st Class Robert Dodge, leader of Army recruiting at the center.

He and his comrades dropped to the ground and barricaded themselves in a safe place. Dodge estimated there were 30 to 50 shots fired. Doors and glass were damaged at the neighboring Air Force, Navy and Marine offices, he said. Law enforcement officials told recruiters that the gunman stopped his car in front of the recruiting station, shot at the building and drove off, said Brian Lepley, a spokesman with the U.S. Army Recruiting Command in Fort Knox, Kentucky.

The recruiting center sits in a short strip mall, between a cellphone business and an Italian restaurant, with no apparent special security. The gunman opened fire next at the Navy Operational Support Center and Marine Corps Reserve Center Chattanooga. All the dead were killed there. The Navy-Marine center is in an industrial area that includes a Coca-Cola bottling plant. The two entrances to the fenced facility have unmanned gates and concrete barriers that require approaching cars to slow down to drive around them.

Marilyn Hutcheson, who works at Binswanger Glass across the street, said she heard a barrage of gunfire around 11 a.m. “I couldn’t even begin to tell you how many,” she said. “It was rapid-fire, like pow-pow-pow-pow-pow, so quickly. The next thing I knew, there were police cars coming from every direction.” She ran inside, and she and other employees and a customer waited it out with the doors locked. The gunfire continued with occasional bursts for what she estimated was 20 minutes. Bomb squads, SWAT teams and other local, state and federal authorities rushed to the scene. “If it was a grievance or terroristic related, we just don’t know,” she said.

TED – Chris Hadfield Explains Going To Space # Do We Need To Send Religious and Political Leaders there?

A REMARKABLE TED MOMENT BY CHRIS

A REMARKABLE TED MOMENT BY CHRIS

photoI just shared Space Oddity ♫ Sung above Earth in the ISS. Blows Bowie’s version to PIECES!! <Click) It is Chris singing the David Bowie classic in space, in the vacuum of space. In this remarkable Ted moment, I love Ted Talks, and so should the World because it is real and it is an evolving science. I said in the blog below about the song Chris told me in a chat we had “When in space you get a sense of WOW but also a sense of ‘Why do we kill? War?” Follow? It is very easy for us to sit here in the comfort of our homes and say “Ach just bomb them” or “Who cares they are scum” or another example a London Etonite psychopaths called the leader of my Country Scotland a “Little Hitler” We were neither offended nor angered because my Culture, same but different Culture you live in dictates us differently. We don’t do hate well in Scotland, we expect it, we are oppressed in a similar way to Palestine here in Scotland, masquerading as some form of tolerance that we know isn’t there. We area free people in Scotland, but in mind only, for now. We are the most devolved Country on the planet but we are still oppressed. That was an narrow analogy of a bigger picture for sure right? Well we will see.

Let me be quick here now, I want you to please Humans watch this video below and challenge your own mortality and moral focus and thinking about our World from the vantage point of a guy in space looking down in AWE trying to make sense of fear but also War and Death. Chris ‘Hints on this in the video, he is a very smart Canadian man and he knows he can’t say what I suggest but he did hint it.

I am suggesting humanity gather EVERY Political and Religious leader and launch them into space for 6 Months like Chris did a few times and bring them back and ask them if they still see our World as they did before. I can see our World like Chris from a chair in Scotland for the love of God. See I don’t hate, people think I hate but their lack of education confuses hate with knowledge and critical thinking. Religion I am not, a book of Religion I will not read and no house of God built to make money will I step in but I pray to MY god and I get solace be you accept that or not because my invisible God is no greater than yours, if you are angered then I suggest you are the very hate that holds humanity back, BUT I RESPECT YOUR RIGHT TO DO SO. I don’t hate you for intolerance whoever you are who hold humanity back, I like MOST of Humanity are just confused by you. NOW!! This is the interesting and most important part. If YOU were offended by anything I just said/wrote whatever here, could it be you are THAT RELIGIOUS PERSON HOLDING THE WORLD BACK? I am asking, not telling or forcing, please don’t confuse my curious nature as hate. I tire of daily stupid people telling me what is what and what is not. I am Scottish, I am clever, in Scotland if 10 is the cleverest I am about a 4 or 5, no shit! Where is your moral compass? Where is your number for knowledge or education?

Watch this video humanoids and then come back to me and TRY and challenge my thinking. Not because I am correct but because I ask you too, I may be wrong you see. Yeah!

Enjoy, because this is exactly what we need and YOU who feels anger over my words here are stopping progress, you drag us all back thousands of years in your selfish manner. Again, if you are angered you are the problem so don’t come running to me with anger on this one because you OUT yourself as the problem, the moral dilemma is not mine to juggle, it is Global, it is humanity’s to juggle, not JUST YOU!

Peace, Respect, Solidarity in all and every sense of the expressions

Israeli F16’s Falling from the Skies over Yemen – After Israel drops Nuclear bomb in Yemen

esident VT aviation expert Jeff Smith of Los Alamos National Labs has provided us with an analysis of this situation

Resident VT aviation expert Jeff Smith of Los Alamos National Labs has provided us with an analysis of this situation

I did this on the 26th May, this happened a week ago today, many Arabic news stations are sharing the story. https://acebreakingnews.wordpress.com/2015/05/26/israeli-air-force-drop-neutron-bomb-in-yemen-saudi-arabia-implicated-video/ That was the original article I did. Sourcing this is VERY DIFFICULT. Thankfully I found a ton of sites that have told this story, sadly none of them are our Main stream media in the West. I can only source so far on my own. None of the big hitters on You Tube or Blogging World have went near this story. So I am at a total loss as to what happened here. If indeed Israel released a Nuclear bomb on Yemen then I can see Israel in a LOT of trouble and this, being a Religious issue will mean the blind leading us all into War. Many in Religious areas of our World are already wanting Iran attacked and Palestine burnt to the ground. THANKFULLY most of t he World don’t. In the name of Religion this will kill us all one day.  For now all we can do is make sense of the senseless

~~~~Via: http://www.veteranstoday.com/2015/05/25/additional-confirmation-of-yemen-nuclear-attack/ ~~~~

This week two F16s were shot down over Yemen.  When the wreckage was examined, both were found to be of types never supplied to an Arab nation, not Saudi Arabia, not anyone.  The only “buyer” in the region for that type of plane is Israel.

With two Israeli planes downed this week, fresh Saudi markings painted on them, and a strong confirmation of a tactical thermonuclear attack on a Yemeni airbase, a neutron bomb attack (NRR No Residual Radiation), the Yemen war is now clearly an Israeli war.

Yemeni air defense forces shot down a Saudi marked fighter jet in the northwestern province of Sana’a in Yemen as it was conducting airstrikes. This is the second F16 shot down this week – clearly the strength of the Yemeni air defences has been grossly underestimated. The Saudi F-16 fighter jet was shot down and subsequently crashed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the northern part of Sana’a.

On May 11, Yemen’s Al-Masirah television reported that Ansarullah fighters brought down a Moroccan marked fighter jet violating the country’s airspace in the Noshour Valley in the northern province of Sa’ada. The aircraft shot down today had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemen’s Al-Dailami airbase. Saudi jets have been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 26.

According to Yemeni media outlets, on Sunday Saudi fighter jets targeted a factory in the western Yemeni province of Al-Hudaydah, killing three civilians and injuring 19 others. The Saudi fighter jets also targeted residential areas, a military airbase and a police headquarters in the province in separate attacks.

Now we come to the interesting part – analysis of the wreckage shows these planes to be of unknown origin. While they carried Saudi paint jobs, we know that they cannot be Saudi aircraft and in fact areIsraeli aircraft flown by Arabic speaking Israeli Air Force pilots, members of a special ‘Kamikaze’ unit that flies specially modified F16, ‘nuke carriers’ tasked for doomsday operations against Iran, Russia or Western Europe.

One of these aircraft was most likely responsible for dropping the neutron bomb on Yemen a few days ago. Yemeni media reports that two of the ‘rockets’ carried by the fighter jet remained unexploded and were found in the wreckage; these are most likely the Sidewinder missiles carried for defence against other aircraft. We do not know what other ordnance the aircraft was carrying.

The pilots of these two downed aircraft have not been found; no doubt extensive searches are being carried out – an Israeli pilot captured alive would be quite a coup for the Yemenis.

The aircraft was shot down by an updated BUK system supplied by Russia – Yemen is well-equipped with modern Russian weaponry including MiG-29s and advanced air-defence systems, a fact that has clearly been overlooked by the Saudis and their Israeli allies; they have grossly underestimated the capabilities of their enemy and as we have seen before, most notably in southern Lebanon against Hezbollah – Israel does not do so well when it’s victims are prepared and capable of fighting back; perhaps they thought they were bombing undefended civilians in Gaza?

Is Israel participated in the bombing of Yemen?
Via Al Mayadeen News on You Tube

saudi_f16_wreckagePhoto analysis of the shot down F-16 in Yemen show that they are the early model; block A/B F-16 ground attack configuration version (it has the small or what is called the short tail) with Royal Saudi Air Force markings being newly painted on the air frame. All of the so-called Arab coalition aircraft are block C/D not A/B. So this is probably one of the 50 surplus US F-16 A models given to Israel during the Clinton administration or it is a recently surplus ex-NATO aircraft either from Italy or Portugal. The only other option is that they were directly supplied from the US covertly. We need a serial no. or tail number to confirm which production block they came from.  I forgot it was carrying the 300 gal center line long range bolt on conformal drop tank with no air to air refueling capability or ECM equipment. This is why it was shot down. Too slow and no countermeasures. It was also using the older APG-66 radar. Riyadh or UAE to Yemen is only 600 miles. However Israel to Yemen is 1200 miles. An F-16 with 3 drop tanks, 4x 1000 lb bombs and 2 sidewinder missiles for self defense is do-able from Israel. The very same distance and mission configuration as needed to hit Iran.

From Press TV:

Yemeni army has shot down a Saudi warplane northeast of the northern city of Sa’ada, as Al Saud regime continues its aerial attacks against its southern neighbor unabated.According

Saudi painted F16 A, Israeli jet shot down in Yemen

Saudi painted F16 A, Israeli jet shot down in Yemen

to Yemen’s al-Masirah television, the Saudi plane was downed in Kataf district of the province. Earlier in the day, another Saudi F-16 fighter jet was downed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the north of the northwestern province of Sana’a. The fighter jet had reportedly conducted a number of airstrikes against Yemen’s al-Dailami air base. Saudi jets have been carrying out military strikes against Yemen since March 26. On May 11, Ansarullah fighters brought down a Moroccan fighter jet violating the country’s airspace in the Noshour Valley in the northern province of Sa’ada.

Israeli Air Force Drop Neutron Bomb in Yemen, Saudi Arabia implicated (Video)

1432450851e

Listen to the woman scream then the blast hitting her surrounding area and kids and everyone else screaming. This is not good if indeed, as it looks like, it was Israel. If this was Israel they should be charged and have full sanctions placed upon them by the United Nations and the World. America destroyed IRAQ in search of a bomb like this and found nothing, and now it looks like Israel have dropped a Neutron Bomb on Yemen civilians. I just got sent this video, no news on dead or injured. Again if this is true, the World should turn away from Israel and if anyone wants to defend them, well, as ‘W’ said after 9/11 “You are either with us or against us” I will source as much as I can here. Today revealed on Tuesday that the two F16s, which were shot down over Yemen this week, belonged to the Israeli Air Force.

A. Its not a conventional 2k lb bomb. It’s much bigger.

B. Its either a very large MOAB bigger than 4,000 lbs. or; ???? Max weight for an F-15 / 16 is about 2,000 lb payload per bomb rack making the deployment of a MOAB impossible.

C. Its appears to be a small neutron bomb. The size, color, lightning effect and duration of the fire ball being suspended in mid air and the very large mushroom cloud is the main give away. The CCD cameras imaging device was “scintillating” (detecting Neutrons) That is the white pixel flashes in the video. When the photo has white pixel flashes in it, that is because it is being hit by neutrons from the nuclear fireball blast. It overloads the ccd’s electronic circuit producing white flashes. If the radiation is too high it will burn out the chip. They ha big problems with this in Japan with the Fukushima robots cameras failing due to very high radiation counts.

D. Delivery is most likely by an IDF F-16 with a Saudi paint job on the plane. They are not even hiding their use anymore, they just don’t publicly admit it and the IAEA does nothing or says nothing. That is the true war crime. The UN just ignores it unless the US, France or GB complains…….. Russia and China say nothing.

E. This is now the second known use of nukes in Yemen by Saudi Arabia…………..

Neutron Bomb Dropped by Israeli Air Force Plane with Saudi Markings on Yemeni Civilians
Via North America on You Tube – Listen to the screaming of innocent people

Post Script:

A. The range of the camera is calculated to be about 4 to 5 miles from ground zero based on shock wave timing.

B. Saudi has no F-16’s. The aircraft reported to be used to droop the bomb in Yemen were F-16’s. Photos and acoustic signature confirms that the jet engines noise is from a single engine jet fighter of the F-16 type.

Happy Harvey Milk Day – May 22nd #LGBT

Harvey-Milk-Poster-with-Postage-Stamp

All though our history we have people who have made or helped change things. One guy who did was Harvey Milk. I watched the movie with Sean Penn when it came out and what this guy did for the LGBT community not just where he lived but Worldwide can’t be forgotten. This is not a day we recognize here in Scotland but I was aware it is a big date for many. So to everyone who took Harvey’s legacy and made it more real, this is for you. Have a great day, as a species we must not label people. We wouldn’t say “Look at all those Christian’s at that table drinking wine” But people will say “Look at all these gay, transgender and bisexual people” We as a species label each other and we must stop. Anyway, if you celebrate this day, please! Have fun and enjoy your God given right to be, just to be. Harvey Milk Day is organized by the Harvey Milk Foundation and celebrated each year held May 22 in memory of Harvey Milk, a gay rights activist assassinated in 1978, yeah another person with a peaceful message was killed, there is a theme here, anyone see it yet? RIP Harvey Milk, may your legacy go on for all of time and people be allowed to be, just be

“I ask for the movement to continue, for the movement to grow, because last week I got a phone call from Altoona, Pennsylvania, and my election gave somebody else, one more person, hope… You gotta give ‘em hope.”

— Harvey Milk

What is Harvey Milk Day?

Harvey Milk Day is a day to educate your school about an extraordinary leader whose courageous work to end discrimination against the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender community in the 1970s set the stage for many of the civil rights advances we see today.

Who was Harvey Milk?

Harvey Milk was an activist, organizer, and the first openly gay man elected to public office in the country as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in the late 1970s. Harvey Milk came out and started organizing against discrimination of gay and lesbian business owners in the Castro District of San Francisco, and against the Briggs Initiative (this was an initiative on the California state ballot in 1978 that would have banned gays and lesbians from working in California schools). Milk was responsible for passing gay rights ordinances for the city of San Francisco and served eleven months in office before he was assassinated on November 27, 1978 along with San Francisco Mayor George Moscone. We celebrate Harvey Milk Day on his birthday, May 22.

New Resources for Teachers

HMD CurriculaThe California Safe Schools Coalition, GSA Network, and Our Family Coalition have come together to create a website for educators to access curriculum about Harvey Milk.

The website features new Harvey Milk Day curriculum suitable for teaching high school students, in addition to existing curriculum already in use in elementary schools. This includes a short educational biography of Harvey Milk, curricula organized by grade level, resources and links for Harvey Milk books and movies, and the ability for teachers to submit curricula they have developed for their own classes and others.

For more information, please visit: www.safeschoolscoalition.org/harveymilkday/

  • Ask your school to have an announcement on the PA system about Harvey Milk Day. Include who he was, what he did, and why remembering him is important for you and your school.
  • Hold an assembly to celebrate Harvey Milk, and use it as a time to educate your peers about LGBT issues and the impact that Harvey Milk had on our community.
  • Invite speakers who can either talk about Harvey Milk’s impact in the 1970s or the relevance of his work today.
  • Encourage your teachers to have a class discussion on Harvey Milk and the LGBT civil rights movement. In History or Social Sciences classes, you may ask to devote either a portion or an entire class to talking about past LGBT community leaders and other civil rights leaders from the 1970s.
  • Have an LGBT teach in, take over the cafeteria or study hall and teach about Harvey Milk and other LGBT leaders.
  • Consider working with other students or groups on campus to expand Harvey Milk Day into an entire “Forgotten History Week.” Have discussions, show movies, or make posters about other important historical leaders who seem to have been forgotten.
  • Show the movies “The Times of Harvey Milk,” “Castro” (which aired on PBS), or “Milk” to your GSA, in a History or Social Sciences class, or to the whole school and hold a discussion afterwards. Consider screening one of these movies after school, during lunch, or making it into a weeklong series.

Mobilize:

  • Create a poster campaign for your school (you can use the GLBT History Month site at www.glbthistorymonth.com for more information). Make posters highlighting Harvey Milk and bring attention to other figures in the LGBT and other civil rights movements.
  • Make buttons, stickers, or t-shirts expressing support for Harvey Milk and the LGBT community.
  • Write an article for your school paper about Harvey Milk and what his story means to you.

More Tips for Planning & Having a Successful Harvey Milk Day

Before

  • Make a Plan: Your GSA should prepare for how exactly you want to approach the day and what you want it to consist of.
  • Create a Timeline: After deciding on your club’s goal, you should make a timeline so that everyone knows what needs to be done. Be sure to include who is in charge of each item and when it needs to be finished.
  • Get More People Involved: Try to get as many people as possible aware of the event and involved in participating. You could do that by sending out e-mail announcements, advertising in the school newspaper, putting up flyers and posters, and of course by word of mouth.
  • Get Teachers/Administrators/Staff Involved: Find out if staff are interested in participating and schedule a meeting with your principal!
  • Build Coalitions/Build Bridges: Consider including other school clubs that may be interested in collaborating on the event.
  • Issue a Press Release: Let the local media know about what you are doing to honor Harvey Milk. Describe the events at your school, history of the event, and use some quotes from GSA members about why you are doing the event. Be sure to include a phone number for how a reporter can reach your group to follow-up for interviews.
  • Be Prepared! Have a meeting to discuss positive ways to handle harassment from non-participants. Be prepared to have spokespersons from your group who can speak about the event.

During

  • Announce the Event: Post an announcement in the daily bulletin or through the PA system at school explaining the event and requesting that all staff and students be respectful of the students participating in the project.
  • Coordinate Volunteers: Ask people to help setup your event. Make sure that you have enough people for setup, monitoring the event, and cleanup.
  • Provide Resources: Have a resource spot or staffed table where people can find info about your GSA or other LGBTQ groups and resources.
  • Organize Visual Displays: Organize a visual display such as having your participants wear a sticker or T-shirt, or put up posters all over campus explaining the event.

After

  • Continue the Education: Host a discussion about how to raise awareness about Harvey Milk and other LGBT activists everyday as opposed to one day out of the year.
  • Evaluate the Day: Evaluate the successes of the day and discuss what improvements could be made for next year.

Frequently Asked Questions about Harvey Milk Day

What is law for Harvey Milk Day? 

In 2009, the State of California officially designated May 22 as “Harvey Milk Day.”  Education Code section 37222 now recognizes May 22 as Harvey Milk Day, and says that “public schools and educational institutions are encouraged to observe those days and to conduct suitable commemorative exercises . . . remembering the life of Harvey Milk, recognizing his accomplishments, and familiarizing pupils with the contributions he made to this state.”  Download a copy of the law here.

What does this mean for your school? 

The law does not require your school to celebrate Harvey Milk Day, but the law should allow you (as a teacher or a student) to celebrate the day in a variety of ways.

I’m a teacher and I’d like to talk about Harvey Milk in a class:

If you teach a subject in which discussion of Harvey Milk would be appropriate (such as History or Social Sciences) or if you are teaching students in a neutral context such as home room, then you should be able to add in a discussion of Harvey Milk as a celebration of Harvey Milk Day.

I’m a student and I’d like to do a presentation about Harvey Milk in a class:

Your teacher will need to give you permission to do a special presentation, but you should use the law to argue that such a presentation is appropriate.  If Harvey Milk fits into an assignment you already have (such as an assignment to write about an historical figure), then you must be allowed to do the assignment on Harvey Milk – including a presentation.

My GSA would like to commemorate Harvey Milk Day publicly at school – in an assembly or by showing a movie:

You should ask your school to sponsor the assembly or the movie, and you should show them the law to explain why they should sponsor.  If your school refuses, you should check the rules as to how clubs can call assemblies/show movies – the school must apply the same rules to the GSA as to any other non-curricular student club.

My GSA would like to put up posters about our planned commemoration of Harvey Milk Day:

You should try to get special permission from your school to put up posters about the commemoration, showing your school the law. If your school doesn’t give you special permission, it still has to let you put up posters in the same places that other non-curricular clubs can put up posters (so, if the drama club can put up posters for a play, you can put up posters for your Harvey Milk Day commemoration).
