July 12, 2016


     Poland: a video made by Amnesty International Poland recording refugees and Europeans meeting for the first time - "Look Beyond Borders - 4 minutes experiment" [access:< https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OFnB4Sa4Ewg&feature=youtu.be >].



     U.S.: the 2014 suicide rate of veterans decreased slightly to twenty per day, down from 22 per day in 2013. The rate for female veterans was almost two and a half times that of women in the general population. Older veterans were at the highest risk. The ACLU reports that Foreign born veterans, some in service since Vietnam, who have been charged with misdemeanors were being deported; their military service was not being taken into account. Stars and Stripes notes that every night almost 50,000 vets sleep in the streets. Military Times reports a 70,000 disability claims backlog in the Veterans Administration system, an improvement from 2013 when the backlog reached over 600,000. In 2015 the number of veterans receiving VA disability benefits reached 4.2 million.     Partial sources online: "VA puts latest estimate of veteran suicides at 20 per day," AP, July 7, 2016, Yahoo! news; "ACLU says US deporting 'untold number' of military veterans," Feliks Garcia, July 6, 2016, The Independent; "One reason so many veterans are homeless? They can't afford lawyers," Martha Bergmark and Ellen Lawton, July 8, 2016, Stars and Stripes; "VA disability backlog tops 70,000 — 7 months after it was supposed to be zero," Leo Shane III, July 10, 2016, Military Times.
