Photo: Marites N. Sison/Anglican Journal[Anglican Journal, Mississauga, Ontario] The Council of General Synod (CoGS) on March 14 acknowledged the injustices and racism experienced by Japanese Canadian Anglicans at the hands of the Anglican Church of Canada during and after World War II, and said it confessed “the error of our ways.”CoGS, the church’s governing body between General Synods, also supported the 2010 apology made by Bishop Michael Ingham for the sale of Japanese congregation churches in the Diocese of New Westminster during World War II and months after Japanese Canadian exiles returned to Vancouver.In a resolution, CoGS said it recognized that “deep-seated historic racism continues as a source of pain to Japanese Canadians across Canada” and commended “every effort in the interests of healing and reconciliation.”Archbishop Fred Hiltz supported the resolution, calling it “a sign to the whole church to acknowledge sins of the past…[one that] expresses a desire to be continually reconciled.”The resolution was approved after an emotional presentation made by members of the Japanese-Canadian Vancouver Consultation Council (JC-VCC) who had spent more than a decade digging into the truth about what happened to their churches during the war.In 1942, the Canadian government ordered Japanese Canadians — 22,000 of them from British Columbia — to pack a single suitcase, then sent them to internment camps. The push to confine them to shantytowns in the wilderness came from Ian MacKenzie, federal cabinet minister from B.C., and provincial politicians angered by the December 1941 Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and fearful of an invasion of the Pacific coast.“It is my personal intention, as long as I remain in public life, to see they never come back here,” MacKenzie had pledged. “Let our slogan be for British Columbia: ‘No Japs from the Rockies to the seas.’ ” In 1943, the federal government ordered the sale of all properties seized from Japanese Canadians.Such virulence extended to the church, the JC-VCC’s investigation showed. And that, said Greg Tatchell in his presentation to CoGS, “has been the hardest part of our project.”Their research showed that New Westminster held three pre-World War II Anglican church properties in trust for 1,500 Japanese Canadian parishioners in Vancouver, said Tatchell. Two, including Church of the Ascension, were sold in 1945 near the end of World War II; one, Holy Cross Church, was sold after the war, on Aug. 19, 1949, several months after the first Japanese Canadians were allowed to return to Vancouver.“The sale of the church after the war ended was especially insensitive and wrong,” said Lynne Shozawa, her voice breaking. Shozawa was born to Japanese Anglican parents in an internment camp in B.C.The diocese had also held the funds of these congregations, but after their exile ended and they were allowed to return to Vancouver, the diocese opted to divert $8,107.64 of these funds into the Bishop’s Endowment Fund, with authorization from the diocesan executive council.Instead of welcoming back their Japanese Canadian parishioners after the war, the diocesan executive council passed a motion on May 10, 1949, stating that “the need for Japanese Mission work was nil.”In 1953, the Rev. Canon Tim Makoto Nakayama — then studying to become a priest — asked then bishop of the diocese of New Westminster, Godfrey Philip Gower, what had happened to the Japanese Canadian churches and was simply told, “They were relinquished.” Nakayama, whose father was the priest at the Church of the Ascension before the war, was “stunned,” said Tatchell.Tatchell said their research showed that “institutional racism” was aided by the fact that the diocese’s executive council had included one of the “worst purveyors” of racism, Halford D. Wilson, an alderman who made no secret that he despised Japanese Canadians.The JV-VCC delegation, which also included well-known Japanese Canadian author Joy Kogawa, said they came to CoGS “to seek your support in finding some kind of reconciliation.”CoGS’s approval of the resolution, submitted by the partners in mission and eco-justice committee, is an assurance that “a justice has been revealed and acknowledged,” said Shozawa. “This marks just the beginning for us. We are heartened by the church’s promise to be with us on the road to healing and reconnection with those we lost.”She added that while there were church leaders who turned their backs on Japanese Canadian Anglicans during the war, there were others who stood by them. “We remember with love the missionary workers and clergy who followed us to the camps. They were the face of the church,” she said. “We are grateful to these few who were so faithful in their calling that they inspired within us a similar commitment to this day.”They presented the primate, Archbishop Fred Hiltz, with a bronze Relinquished Memorial Plaque, which includes highlights from their research and Ingham’s apology; the same plaque has been mounted next to the pulpit of Holy Cross Japanese Canadian Anglican Church, and the primate has promised to hang it at the national church office in Toronto.“This is our story, our small memorial, to remind us to see what we do not see and to care for the least among us, whoever they may be,” said Shozawa in her presentation of the plaque.—With files from Topic, CBC Archives and B.C.

She attended on behalf of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies. Photo: Katie Forsyth/Diocese of Eastern MichiganThe service, titled “A Memorial in Remembrance of Mother Emanuel Church,” was held at Bethel AME Church in Detroit and additionally was sponsored by the Episcopal Peace Fellowship and Oak Grove AME.Eight speakers from several denominations including Episcopal, AME, Baptist, and Roman Catholic processed into the sanctuary to an instrumental version of “We Shall Overcome” before each offered a reading and reflection touching on the murders in Charleston, Orlando and others in recent memory.The Rev. Phil Cooke, a Jesuit priest who serves as the director of social entrepreneurship at the University of Detroit Mercy, spoke early in the vigil and expressed his frustration saying, “I’m sick and tired and sad and angry…We have people thinking that walls and division and hate will make our country better.”Cooke and many others focused on the extraordinary forgiveness shown by the family and survivors of Mother Emanuel AME toward Dylann Roof, the shooter that killed nine members of the church during a Bible study on June 17, 2015.“We are gathered here from many different denominations, but we are walking one path,” said the Rev. Robert Brumfield, pastor of Oak Grove AME. “We are here to remember the lives lost and to lift up the legacy of their families who exhibited faith and strength in being able to forgive.”Bob Lotz, co-facilitator of the event and member of the National Executive Council of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, speaking on June 12 during a service to remember the nine people killed in June 2015 Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston, South Carolina. Photo: Katie Forsyth/Diocese of Eastern MichiganBob Lotz, co-facilitator of the event and member of the National Executive Council of the Episcopal Peace Fellowship, called the congregation to follow the way of Jesus saying, “We live in silos of self but Jesus doesn’t want that. He calls us to live in a counter-cultural way of loving neighbors as ourselves. That’s not individualism, that’s community… We called this [memorial] to be a commemoration of the Christian love shown in Charleston so that we may have the strength to be that love in our own communities.”The Rev. Alice Patterson, pastor of Trinity AME, called on those gathered to take action, “Church, we’ve got work to do. This is our moment and the Gospel is our memo.”Diane Pollard, chair of the 2015 House of Deputies Committee on Social Justice and United States Policy, attended the service and spoke on behalf of Presiding Bishop Michael Curry and the Rev. Gay Clark Jennings, president of the House of Deputies.She began by dedicating her words to those killed in Orlando earlier that day and went on to describe the work of the Episcopal Church in the immediate aftermath of the shooting in Charleston as they gathered in Salt Lake City days later for the 78th General Convention. She continued, detailing the ongoing work of the church and its leadership to combat violence and racism through “prayer, teaching, engagement and action.”Pollard concluded by reading aloud a letter written for the gathering by Curry and Jennings.The vigil also included a liturgical dance presentation to Common and John Legend’s “Glory” written for the 2014 movie, Selma, and the debut of a song titled “Nine Lives,” written by Sanchez Harley for the nine killed at Mother Emanuel AME in Charleston.An offering was taken to be split between St. Paul’s Episcopal Church and Quinn Chapel AME in Flint, Michigan, to support ongoing water relief work.Lotz concluded the event by thanking the facilitators and participants before sending them out with a Benedictine blessing, calling for justice, freedom and peace and for the community to share in the work.– Katie Forsyth is the Director of Communications and Public Engagement for the Episcopal Diocese of Eastern Michigan.

The plot has an area of 2.880 m2 (sq.m.), residential use, over which 84 government subsidized dwellings are to be materialized, developed into 8.820 m2 (sq.m.) of residential use and 900 m2 of commercial use.Save this picture!© Jorge AllendeVitoria-gasteiz’s general plan for urban planning proposes for the m-18 parcel, a collective building composed of two blocks developed discontinuously in height, ground floor plus 6 levels and ground floor plus 9 levels, holding a total of 84 homes rectangularly disposed in 48 by 13 m area (plan view) each block, except overhangs, allowing a free design configuration. The garage spaces and the storage rooms are allocated in the basement. Commercial premises include a total area of 900 m2 and are situated on the ground floor distributed among the doorways or else on the annex buildings between the two main houses aligned to the zabalgana avenue. The typology of the construction corresponds to those of rectangular shaped blocks lined up with the adjacent main road, materialized in ground floor +6 and ground floor +9, comprised of 6 or 2 dwellings on each floor per block, amounting to 84 dwellings, 42 dwellings per building. At the same time, these buildings blend in as blocks with the façade facing zabalgana avenue ( north-southbound road) and the new east-west roadway.Save this picture!© Jorge AllendeBearing in mind the premises stated on the general plan for the sector, both residential buildings are situated and developed according to the planning for the sector and parcel, although the section of the building where the commercial premises lie facing zabalgana avenue is interrupted leaving two openings on its ends thereupon achieving an unhindered and open view towards the free private area, the back access road and the parcel of educational facilities.

Environmental Engineer: Text description provided by the architects. This small vacation house is designed as a stairway to the treetops. Keeping the footprint to a minimum so as not to disturb the wooded site, each of the first three floors has only one small bedroom and bath, each a tiny private suite. The top floor, which contains the living spaces, spreads out from the tower like the surrounding forest canopy, providing views of the lake and mountains in the distance. An outdoor roof terrace deck above extends the living space above the treetops, offering a stunning lookout to the long view. The glass-enclosed stair also highlights the procession from forest floor to treetop aerie, while the dark green, back-painted glass exterior camouflages the house by reflecting the surrounding woods, de-materializing its form. At dusk, mini lights dotting the cable rail of the stair mimic local fireflies sparkling in the woods as day turns to dark.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© GLUCK+As a vacation home, the Tower House is used during a few weekends in the winter and most weekends in the summer. The design imperative was to develop a sustainable, energy efficient solution with minimal operating costs and maintenance for a house occupied part-time. The stacked north-facing bedrooms take advantage of light and views with floor to ceiling glass. In order to optimize energy savings for heating and cooling in this part-time residence, a two part sustainable strategy was employed to reduce the heating footprint of the house in the winter and to avoid the need for air conditioning in the summer.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholSave this picture!© GLUCK++ 23While the house is heated conventionally, by compressing and stacking all of the wet zones of the house into an insulated central core, much of the house can be “turned off” in the winter when not in use. When not in use, only 700 square feet of the 2,545 square foot house is heated. By closing the building down to only the insulated core, there is a 49% reduction in energy use. In the summertime, the house feels comfortable without air conditioning. Cool air is drawn in and through the house using the stack effect. South-facing glass throughout the stairwell creates a solar chimney and as the heated air rises, it is exhausted out the top,drawing in fresh air through the house from the cooler north side.Save this picture!© Paul WarcholProject gallerySee allShow less’Eurorennes Ilot Féval’ Winning Proposal / Jean-Paul Viguier et AssociésUnbuilt ProjectMalecon Castilla House / David Mutal ArquitectosSelected Projects Share Area: 2545 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project Save this picture!© Paul Warchol+ 23 Share IBC Engineering Services Inc.

Therefore I located ahouse in the depths of the site and made buffer space between thehouseand streets.Furthermore, I did not make the fence at border line of lot and planting trees on the whole site and opened the garden for streets.In the garden design, in order to close to the scenery of the forest before the residential land development, I used river stones and wild cherry blossoms which it was on the mountain just before construction.This project made scenery which a forest come back.. Because of site planning and garden design born margin space for the residential area and make expansive streetSave this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesCharacteristic of the siteI had a good view of the sky over neighboring houses because the premise was a corner lot as well as a gentle slope toward south. The premise was also receiving sunlight all day. This is a fortunate condition rarely found in residential areas, and I thought that the broad view toward the sky and the sense of transition of the sun along the road of natural light will be a key to build a house here.Save this picture!Courtesy of Katsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesIntention of the planningThe plane is a polygon for two reasons. The first reason is that various elements ( family garden and small private garden and laundry garden and approach and parking ) required for the premise are gently separated by the house. The second reason is that transition of the sun is reflected in the room multilaterally. The number of sides is six, which was decided according to the uses required for the garden and the study of each interior room. The outer shape of the hexagon has the same shapes with nesting structures, and the periphery is surrounded by a water section and a bedroom, and a family space is located in the center. The traffic line expands into every room through the family space in the center.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe delicate transition of light reservoirI proposed a plan that we space the roof from the exterior wall to take in the view of the sky and natural light from the whole circumference of the house. A light reservoir made of wooden vertical lattice has been planning as a medium that reflects the transition of natural light. Also, the delicate transition of the sun reflected on the wooden vertical lattice let inhabitants feel the riches and flux of time, and stirs their Japanese sensitivities. The light reservoir coloring the time gently separates the whole space as well as functions as a connection between the insides and outsides of the nested spaces.Project gallerySee allShow lessDesigning Invisible Architecture: Bird Hides by BiotopeArticlesTicollage City / Costa Rica Pavilion at the Venice Biennale 2014Architecture News Share CopyAbout this officeKatsutoshi Sasaki + AssociatesOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesToyotaHousesJapanPublished on July 23, 2014Cite: “KORO House / Katsutoshi Sasaki + Associates” 23 Jul 2014.

WW photo: Sharon BlackBaltimore — One after another, the mostly West African immigrant SuperShuttle workers poured out their grievances in front of the Veolia transportation headquarters in Baltimore on Jan. 20 — the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday — expressing their anger at what they described as near-slavery working conditions. Global transportation giant Veolia, which owns SuperShuttle, is notorious for its anti-worker activities.Tony Koukou Yovo, who was fired after he spoke out against Veolia’s practices, and Patrick Benhene, another outspoken leader, declared their intentions not to be silenced. They were followed by many co-workers, like Mohammad Cisse, who described how he had to sleep in his van to barely break even financially and how his family suffered. Claire Evans, a SuperShuttle leader from Washington, D.C./Virginia, expressed her support for her co-workers. Countless other workers took the microphone describing terrible working conditions and why they were resisting.Andre Powell, a representative of the “We Deserve Better” Workers Assembly and an American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees delegate to the Baltimore Metropolitan AFL-CIO Labor Council, who co-chaired the event, told this reporter, “We felt that there was no better way to celebrate Dr. King’s day than to be protesting in front of Veolia’s headquarters. One of Dr. King’s last actions was to defend workers’ rights, protesting for striking sanitation workers.”The group rallied for approximately an hour, then marched to North Avenue to take their message to a larger number of people. Prior to the rally at Veolia’s headquarters, SuperShuttle workers and Workers Assembly volunteers distributed thousands of flyers and carried a large banner calling on people to support the workers in the official King holiday parade.The rally and march were sponsored by the “We Deserve Better” Workers Assembly and Food and Commercial Workers Local 1994.Amy Millar and Josh Ardison, organizers with Local 1994, spoke on behalf of the union. Other speakers included Sharon Black, Workers Assembly representative; Cory McCray, International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers and a candidate for Baltimore’s 45th District seat in the Maryland House of Delegates; and Marice Morales, a Peruvian immigrant. A number of groups and individuals attended in support, including Leon Purnell, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, and anti-war and Occupy activists.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
Fast food workers strike in IowaA few hours before the Jan. 28 Republican presidential primary debate in Iowa, fast food workers walked off the job in the state’s first fast food workers’ strike. Several dozen workers and supporters blocked traffic and marched through the streets of Des Moines to demand a $15 minimum wage and a union.Childcare worker Alexis Wright joined the protest to show class solidarity. “I’ve lived in Iowa my whole life,” she said, “and in the past 10 years, our cost of living has gone up so much, but our wages haven’t gone up any.” Iowa’s minimum hourly wage, among the lowest in the country at the federal minimum of $7.25, leaves even full-time workers unable to afford child care. “Fight for $15” organizer Terrence Wise addressed the politicians: “If you’re not supporting $15 an hour and affordable child care, you won’t get our vote.” (thinkprogress.org, Jan. 28)Airport workers protest on MLK DayAirport workers, including baggage handlers and janitorial workers, predominantly people of color, commemorated Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Jan. 18, with protests in at least 10 cities. They demanded $15 an hour, benefits and a union. Joined by the Service Employees union, workers blocked traffic in Washington, D.C., to call attention to widespread poverty wages in the industry — the minimum hourly wage is $6.75. David Tucker, who, after 54 years working as a skycap at Reagan National Airport, only makes $3.77 an hour, explained, “All my children are grown, so it’s not like I need a whole, whole lot of money, but $15 an hour is not a whole, whole lot of money.” (wusa.com, Jan. 18)D.C. Rep. Eleanor Holmes Norton joined the action and stated: “Dr. King was assassinated in Memphis, where he had gone to stand with sanitation workers who faced inhumane conditions at work and poverty wages. I want to carry on the King legacy by standing with airport workers … whose jobs have been contracted out to companies paying shamefully low wages.” (dclabor.org, Jan. 18) Statistics show that the average hourly wage declined 45 percent after the airlines, which 10 years ago employed these workers, outsourced jobs to contract companies.Bill to protect dairy workers in Wash. stateWashington state dairy workers, supported by the United Farm Workers and state labor and faith groups, held a vigil on Jan. 18, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, at the state Capitol in Olympia to announce the introduction of House Bill 2484. The landmark dairy safety bill is needed to end deaths and rising injury rates at Washington dairies.During a hearing on the bill, Alberto Garcia, who worked in the dairy industry for 20 years, described being trampled by a bull for 30 minutes with no one around to help him. He ended up in a coma in a Seattle hospital with severe internal injuries and barely survived. Since then, he has suffered physically and psychologically, and his family has suffered financially. “I don’t want that to happen to other families because there is no safety and training for the workers,” Garcia told the House committee. (The Stand, Jan. 19)Fight for Nabisco jobs in ChicagoIn July 2015, Nabisco, a subsidiary of global snacking powerhouse Mondelēz International, announced it would invest $130 million in a plant in Salinas, Mexico, instead of investing in its historic South Side Chicago Nabisco bakery, unless the workers came up with $46 million in annual savings in perpetuity. To do that, the workers, members of the Bakery union (BCTGM), would have to take wage and benefit cuts of $22 to $29 an hour every year. If the company, which raked in more than $30 billion in 2014, moved Oreo and eight other product lines to Salinas, Chicago would lose 600 good-paying jobs.Join the fight to keep Nabisco jobs in Chicago by signing the BCTGM petition at tinyurl.com/hnbnvln. The petition is addressed to Mondelēz CEO Irene Rosenfeld, who banked $21 million in 2014, for a total of $170 million over the past eight years.Equal pay for all women workersBecause the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act was signed on Jan. 29, 2009, that date is commemorated by women’s, union and legal groups to mark the continuing struggle for equal pay for women workers. Ledbetter successfully sued Goodyear Tire for discrimination, but the Supreme Court overturned the ruling in 2007. The fight for equal pay persists. Today women make only 79 cents for every dollar a white man makes, with women of color making much less. The struggle for the Equal Rights Amendment continues.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this
