    Global Youth Caucus Solidarity with Workers

     
    A number of promising labor movements are underway throughout the U.S. For workers, the COVID-19 pandemic intensified a number of pre-existing grievances: inadequate and stagnating wages, demanding schedules, workplace safety concerns, and the notorious two-tiered wage system. The pandemic has also brought workers new leverage. Roughly 25,000 workers have recently walked off their jobs and joined picket lines, including workers at Kelloggs’s, John Deere, and Kroger. Even still, 90% of wage and salary workers are not unionized. Workers need more union support, experienced leaders, and strike funds.
     
    Join the DA France and DA Global Youth Caucuses on Wednesday January 19th at 7PM CET for our virtual event to learn more about these movements and write letters of support to these workers as well as letters to the U.S. Department of Labor. We will provide letter templates and mailing addresses, all you need is a pen and paper! RSVP to receive Zoom link.

    Honoring the Fallen: Laying Wreaths…

    LEST WE EVER FORGET

     

     

     

    Memorial Day will again be different this year. There will no public gatherings at the ABMC cemeteries in France, but DA France will still be honoring the men and women who lost their lives during WWl and WWll.

     

    Wreaths will be sent for the private ceremonies around France to be performed by the cemetery staff at: the Lafayette Esquadrille Monument and in Suresnes, Belleau Wood, Oise-Aisne, Meuse-Argonne, St. James, St. Mihiel, St. Avold, Draguignan, the American Legion Mausoleum, Epinal, La Somme. The Toulouse Chapter will be honoring the two OSS Commandos downed during WWII in the Tarn.  The Normandy Chapter will be sending a wreath on June 6th. We would appreciate any contribution for the wreaths: Donate link.

    After the ceremonies, the wreaths will then be placed on the graves of women and those from the African American, Asian American, Native American and Hispanic American communities. At the Belleau Wood and Oise-Aisne cemeteries, there will be a guided tour on May 31st and June 1st. If anyone is interested, please let us know.

     

     

    THE ROSE OF NO MAN'S LAND

     

    There's a rose that grows in no-man's land

    And it's wonderful to see

    Though its sprayed with tears, it will live for years

    In my garden of memory

     

    It's the one red rose the soldier knows

    It's the work of the Master's hand

    'Neath the War's great curse stands a Red Cross nurse

    She's the rose of no-man's land
