Skid Row, Los Angeles

King Jr.-Harbor Hospital King-Drew Medical Center in Los Angeles led to a Pulitzer Prize and a more thorough coverage of the hospital's troubled history. Lopez wrote a five-part series on the civic and humanitarian disgrace of Los Angeles' Skid Row (Skid Row, Los Angeles), which became the focus of the 2009 motion picture, ''The Soloist.'' Los Angeles The Los Angeles region is thought to have the largest concentration of homeless persons in the country and is considered the homelessness capital of the USA "Los Angeles Still Homeless Capital Of United States", Imperial Valley News, Wednesday, 25 June 2008 Wolch, Jennifer; Blasi, Gary; and Dear, Michael, "L.A.'s homeless: A progress report", USC Center for Sustainable Cities, June 22, 2008 , together with San Francisco. In its biennual census of 2011, the County counted more than 51,000 homeless persons living in the county at any given night. http: www.lahsa.org docs 2011-Homeless-Count HC11-Detailed-Geography-Report-FINAL.PDF One hundred thousands persons are expected to be homeless at least one night during the year. http: www.lahsa.org docs 2011-Homeless-Count HC11-Detailed-Geography-Report-FINAL.PDF A 50-block area in downtown Los Angeles called Skid Row (Skid Row, Los Angeles) (4,316) http: www.lahsa.org docs 2011-Homeless-Count HC11-Detailed-Geography-Report-FINAL.PDF has a homeless population nearly as large as the homeless population of San Francisco (6,455). http: www.sfexaminer.com local 2011 05 san-francisco-s-homeless-count-reveals-drop-chronic-homelessness Hollywood and the city of Santa Monica also suffer from visible homelessness. Los Angeles, of course, has approximately 3.6 times the population of San Francisco, http: www.lahsa.org docs 2011-Homeless-Count HC11-Detailed-Geography-Report-FINAL.PDF this means that even in proportions Los Angeles has more homeless than San Francisco. After being wounded in World War II, he began working seriously on his guitar playing, influenced heavily by Django Reinhardt. After the war, he returned to Moultrie then moved to Los Angeles county where he worked in Western films and played music in bars around L.A.'s Skid Row (Skid Row, Los Angeles), where he met pioneering pedal steel guitarist Speedy West. West, who joined Cliffie Stone's popular Hometown Jamboree local radio and TV show, suggested Bryant be hired when the show's original guitarist departed. That gave Bryant access to Capitol Records since Stone was a Capitol artist and talent scout. Zzyzx's original encampment consisted of 20 tents, and he recruited homeless men from Los Angeles' skid row (Skid Row, Los Angeles) to build simple concrete buildings. Springer created an imitation hot springs — which he attempted to pass off as genuine — by using a boiler to heat several pool (heat sink)s.

Srebrenica

right thumb Compound of the former Dutch battalion ("Dutchbat (File:Dutchbat HQ 2009.jpg)") headquarters near Srebrenica Potočari in Bosnia and Herzegovina on abandoned industrial premises By the evening of 11 July 1995, approximately 20,000 to 25,000 Bosniak refugees from Srebrenica were gathered in Potočari, seeking protection within the UN compound there. Several thousand had pressed inside the compound itself, while the rest were spread throughout the neighbouring factories and fields. Though the vast majority were women, children, elderly or disabled, 63 witnesses estimated that there were at least 300 men inside the perimeter of the UN compound and between 600 and 900 men in the crowd outside. The Dutch claimed their base was full. * ''The Chronicle of Our Graves'' by Milivoje Ivanisevic, president of the Belgrade Centre for Investigating Crimes Committed against the Serbs, estimates the number of people killed at around 1,200. * ''For the Honourable Cross and Golden Freedom'', a book published by the RS Ministry of Interior, referred to 641 Serb victims in the Bratunac-Srebrenica-Skelani region. *Phase 3: The Protection of Safe Areas- The next expansion of the mandate was on 16 April 1993 with United Nations Security Council Resolution 819 declaring the town of Srebrenica a "safe area" free "from armed attack or any other hostile act." William J. Durch and James A. Shear (1996). Faultlines: UN Operations in the Former Yugoslavia. New York: St. Martin’s Press In May 1993, Bihać, Sarajevo, Goražde, Žepa and Tuzla were also added as "safe areas". *The involvement of the British battalion, especially concerning the Ahmići massacre, has inspired the film ''Warriors (Warriors (TV series))'' by the BBC. *The involvement of the Dutch battalion (DutchBat) in Srebrenica inspired ''The Enclave''. *The involvement of the Canadian battalion (CanBat) in Krajina inspired ''Peacekeepers''. In April, 1993, Lagumdžija met with a group of citizens from Srebrenica who had journeyed through the Serb lines to Sarajevo. They informed him of the desperate situation of Srebrenica and the eastern Bosnian enclaves. In an effort to highlight the plight of Srebrenica, Lagumdžija suspended humanitarian aid donations for Sarajevo until aid was delivered to the eastern enclaves. A month later, UN (United Nations) Commander Philippe Morillon visited Srebrenica and declared the citizens under the protection of the UN. ''Ibid'', 266. In 1992, he was elected the Special Emissary of United Nations Organization to Bosnia and Herzegovina. In 1995, he resigned because of the idleness of great powers concerning war crimes in Bosnia, especially the assassination of few thousand men and boys in Srebrenica done by Serbian soldiers. He announced in his report breaking of human rights by all participants of this conflict. * The European Court of Human Rights agrees, for the first time, to hear cases brought against Russia by Chechen (Chechnya) civilians. (BBC) (ECHR press release) * Authorities in Republika Srpska, the Bosnian Serb division of Bosnia and Herzegovina, admit for the first time the actual scale of the 1995 Srebrenica massacre (Srebrenica massacre), providing a list of over 7,000 Muslim victims. The Bosnian Serb president admitted in June that Serb forces had committed the massacre, but did not give a specific number of victims. (BBC) (Melbourne Herald Sun) (Channel News Asia) * A Boeing 747 cargo plane, en route to Spain, crashes at the end of a runway at Halifax International Airport in Nova Scotia, Canada. All seven of the crew are confirmed dead in Canada's worst-ever air cargo crash. (CBC) The war in Bosnia brought major ethnic cleansing of non-Serbs from the regions that today make up the Republika Srpska: throughout Bosanska Krajina (notably the significant minority population of Bosniaks and Croats in Banja Luka, slight majority of Bosniaks in Prijedor), Bosnian Posavina (Croats as well as Bosniaks, from Brčko (Brčko (city)), Bosanski Brod, Doboj, Odžak, Derventa), eastern Bosnia (Bosniak majority population of Foča, Zvornik, Višegrad, Srebrenica, Žepa), eastern Herzegovina (Trebinje). During the Bosniak-Croat conflict, Bosniaks were ethnically cleansed by Croats and sometimes vice-versa in areas of Central Bosnia, central and eastern Herzegovina (Mostar and Stolac). The war in Croatia started in 1991, and was caused by the rebellion of Serbian (Serbs) population in Croatia, their wish to secede, hoping to form a Greater Serbia, and along with other Serb-occupied territories in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina unite with Serbia. During the war in Croatia, from 1991 to 1995 around 600,000 Serbs were ethnically cleansed from southern and eastern parts of country, they were forced out in waves, and the most known event was the operation storm, where 250.000 people fled in the course of 5 days. The Croatian operations Flash (Operation Flash) and Storm (Operation Storm) in 1995 was the instigator to widespread incidents, including rapes and murders of those who had chosen to stay, burning of houses, killing of livestock etc. in the purpose of ethnically cleansing these majority Serb areas, but UN, ICTY and international community didn't show any interest for that issue. Many of Croatias generals are indicted for these atrocities, and had the war time president Franjo Tudjman not died he would also be indicted according to Carla Del Ponte, the chief attorney of the Haag court, Serbia is now home to more than 800.000 refuges from Croatia, Bosnia (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and Kosovo, most of them are Serbs, but there are Roma (Romani people) (who are, in most cases, settled in cardbox ghettos around Serbian cities (most famous is Gazela situated under the Gazela bridge in Belgrade downtown)), Gorani (Gorani people), Albanians and Montenegrins as well. A few Chrysi Avyi members participated in the Bosnian War in the Greek Volunteer Guard (GVG), which was part of the Drina Corps of the Army of Republika Srpska. A few GVG volunteers were present in Srebrenica during the Srebrenica massacre (Srebrenica massacre#Non-Serb participants in the killings), and they raised a Greek flag (Flag of Greece) at a ruined church after the fall of the town. Michas, Takis;"Unholy Alliance", Texas A&M University Press: Eastern European Studies (College Station, Tex.) pp. 22 Spiros Tzanopoulos, a GVG sergeant who took part in the attack against Srebrenica, said many of the Greek volunteers participated in the war because they were members of Hrisi Avgi. 16 July 2005 article in Eleftherotypia. (in Greek) Chrysi Avyi members in the GVG were decorated by Radovan Karadžić, but — according to former Chrysi Avyi member Charis Kousoumvris — those who were decorated later left the party. The successful Partisan breakout helped their reputation as a viable fighting force with the local populace. Consequently they were able to replenish their losses with new recruits, regroup, and mount a series of counterattacks in eastern Bosnia, clearing Axis garrisons of Vlasenica, Srebrenica, Olovo, Kladanj and Zvornik in the following 20 days. The success of humanitarian intervention in international affairs is varied. As discussed above, humanitarian intervention is a contentious issue. Examples of humanitarian intervention illustrate, that in some cases intervention can lead to disastrous results, as in Srebrenica and Somalia. In other cases, a lack of clarity as to the rules of when intervention can occur has resulted in tragic inaction, as was witnessed during the Rwandan genocide. One example is of a successful humanitarian intervention and also of humanitarian principles being applied is East Timor which, prior to its independence, was plagued with massive human rights abuses by pro-Indonesian militias and an insurgency war led by indigenous East Timorese against Indonesian forces. A peacekeeping mission was deployed to safeguard the move to independence and the UN established the United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET). This not only dealt with traditional security priorities, but also helped in nation building projects, coordinated humanitarian aid and civil rehabilitation, illustrating not only a successful humanitarian intervention but also a effective application of human security principles. The term '''Bosnian Genocide''' refers to either the genocide (Srebrenica massacre) committed by Bosnian Serb forces in Srebrenica in 1995 or the ethnic cleansing campaign (Ethnic cleansing in Bosnia) that took place throughout areas controlled by the Bosnian Serb Army during the 1992–1995 Bosnian War (war in Bosnia and Herzegovina).
