The disappeared( Visual )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Disappeared tells the compelling story of dissidents killed and then secretly buried by the IRA during the conflict in Northern Ireland. Uncovering hard evidence that Gerry Adams, currently head of the IRA, was involved in one of these killings, this documentary chronicles the ongoing trauma of the victims' families and demands justice on their behalf, no matter how high up the political ladder they have to climb to retrieve it."She was in the bathroom getting washed, and the next thing, they were shouting, "Where is she? Where is she?", recalls Michael McConville, about the moment IRA operatives brandishing balaclavas burst into his West Ireland home to kidnap his mother. "About five days later, an IRA man knocks at the door, and hands me mama's purse and wedding rings. I knew she wasn't going to come back."Jean McConville, a widow and mother of 10, was dragged from the arms of her children in 1972. She became known as one the 'Disappeared' - a group of at least 15 who, considered inconvenient to the Republican movement, were abducted, shot, and disposed of in shallow graves throughout Ireland. The IRA never acknowledged these disappearances, leaving families in anguish, denying them of both closure and justice. Jean's body was recovered in 2003, more than 30 years later. Others of 'the Disappeared' have never been found. Theirs is a story the IRA never wanted exposed. This daring group of filmmakers set out to shine a light on this decades-old IRA practice of disappearances and denials, and to demand justice for the victims, even if those responsible are people of current political esteem and authority. This powerful documentary questions how to hold perpetrators of war crimes accountable, years later, in a time of peace, while telling the previously silenced story of these victimized and traumatized families

A grander vision : my life in the labour movement by Sid Ryan( )

5 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A stirring, heartfelt manifesto written by a man who fervently believes in what workers with their civil society allies can achieve for the good of all. Sid Ryan, one of Canada's most courageous and progressive union leaders, draws on the experience of his varied and colourful life to show what is right with the labour movement, what is wrong, and what has to change if it is to avoid becoming irrelevant. He calls for the adoption of Social Movement Unionism, in which labour forges an alliance with other progressive elements in civil society, taking up the cause of young people, precarious workers, and immigrants. He demands a renewed commitment to the NDP, the party that was built by unions, and he argues that the LEAP Manifesto should become the pillars of the movement in Canada. A Grander Vision is a stirring, heartfelt manifesto written by a man who fervently believes in what workers with their civil society allies can achieve for the good of all."--
Herlinde Koelbl : targets by Herlinde Koelbl( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Wer ist der Feind, wenn Soldaten lernen, ihn zu töten? Herlinde Koelbl, Deutschlands wichtigste Fotografin der Gegenwart, ist dieser Frage sechs Jahre lang auf Schießplätzen und Kasernen in allen Teilen der Welt nachgegangen und hat Zielscheiben in unterirdischen Tunneln, trostlosen Wüstencamps und arabischen Kulissendörfern fotografiert. Das Gesicht des Feindes hat sich verändert: übten die US-amerikanischen Soldaten noch bis vor 20 Jahren an der Figur mit rotem Stern am Helm, als Symbol der Sowjetarmee, so trägt das Ziel seit 9/11 einen Bart und ein Tuch um den Kopf geschlungen. Wer ist der Feind? Jeder glaubt auf der richtigen Seite zu stehen. Und in letzter Konsequenz sind Soldaten und Menschen dann die Ziele. Herlinde Koelbl lässt die reale Grausamkeit eines Krieges und die Gewalt, vom Töten und Getötetwerden, in ihren Bildern spüren. Es entstanden eindringliche Fotografien der Soldaten und Feindbilder

Ireland is a place of mystical, enduring appeal, especially for the many millions of Americans who claim its special heritage, more than one in six according to the last U.S. Census. But Ireland has also become an international place of pilgrimage and of discovery for all who venture there.This unique collaboration between Elizabeth Billups, a Santa-Fe-based photographer and activist, and Gerry Adams, the renowned leader of Sinn Fein, reveals a side of Ireland--and of Gerry Adams--not often portrayed in the guidebooks or magazines or news media. In this special book, the two kindred spirits wander the country together and share a deep love of the land and its people, with Ms. Billups taking gorgeous photographs and Mr. Adams writing unforgettable words.While Mr. Adams has written many acclaimed books concerning his political vision for Ireland, until now he has refrained from sharing his affection for his native land. And so, with Ms. Billups, we are able travel to his and her favorite places, the places that, to them, bespeak of Ireland as one island without borders. Looking at Ms. Billups's beautiful photographs and reading Mr. Adams's family stories and personal anecdotes along with relevant historical details, legends, and myths, we come to understand why Ireland is such a special place and why he fought so long and hard to achieve peace for the many generations to come
