Anne Frank Children's Human Rights Memorial - Antigua, Guatemala

The Ambassadors from Israel, Colombia, and key Guatemalan Congressmen assembled with the guests and visitors as the opening, but hard to hear speeches were given.

It was not that the sound system did not work, it worked well. The ceremony was cordoned off by yellow border tape and heavily armed police. On the outside of the tape, protestors, about ten in number with children in tow banged on drums, yelled, screamed, carried signs with epithets and the Palestinian flag painted on one. They slammed metal plates, trying to create disruption.

The dedication went forward.

The Sgt. Roddie Edmonds historical marker was dedicated in Knoxville, Tn. Friday 8/20. it was funded by the Jewish American Society for Historic Preservation. www.JASHP.org.
Sgt. Edmunds refused to single out the Jewish G.I.s in the Prisoner of War Camp he and they were interred in to the N***s even when his own life was threated with a pistol to his head. He told the N***s commandant, of the 1275 prisoners under Edmonds command, "We are all Jews here." Sgt. Edmonds has been recognized a Righteous Among the Nations, the only American G.I. to be so honored by Israel.
Edmonds lived his life by one guiding principle, "always do the right thing."
The recorded dedication begins about 2.5 minutes in.

Historic marker ceremony honors Lucy F. Covington | San Diego Jewish World

CHENEY, Washington — The Great Drum was rhythmically beaten by ten Native American Salish Singers seated about it. Their Song drifted over the Palouse Prairie as it had before for untold years.

Hundreds gathered on the high ridge above Eastern Washington University, below the white colored water tower with the school’s logo, a huge black and red eagle painted on its side. The logo had been changed in the 70s because empowered Native American students threatened a complete boycott unless the school rid itself of the demeaning moniker, the Eastern Washington “Savages.”
