When two Americans raised their fists in the
Black Power salute in 1968 no one paid much
attention to the third man. After all he had not
raised his own fist though pinned to his chest
was a button demanding equal rights for all
mankind no matter what their color or creed.
The button-badge would become the cross
Peter Norman carried for the rest of his life.
His country, Australia, neither redeemed him
nor officially recognized he had not acted
against the spirit but in the spirit of the
Olympic Games. Australia's greatest sprinter
was never allowed to run in another
Olympics.

The Children of Si-Tho
by Uli Schmetzer

Rookie reporter Serge Dunlov and his photographer friend Thad Morton
are assigned to find the American anthropologist who sparked the
Mushroom Rush in the 1960s when he found and wrote about Maria
Sabina, the high priestess of the magic mushroom cult in Mexico's Sierra
Mazatec. The anthropologist has disappeared. The mission quickly turns
into a brutal encounter with local officials. The two young men become
involved in the indigenous struggle for respect and equal rights. They
climb the mountain to 'trip' with Maria Sabina. The backdrop to their
adventure is the invasion of the Sierra Mazatec by American hippies and
dropouts searching for new drug experiences, new idols after being
disillusioned by the inhumanity of the Vietnam War and the failure and
flaws of world communism.
The Honorable Hack: A Journalist's Odyssey
Paperback – 20 May 2018
by Uli Schmetzer

Foreign Correspondent Serge Dunlov, first introduced by Schmetzer in
The Children of Si-tho, is back. This time he is deep in Latin America's
Dirty Wars. His assignments take him from Mexico's Tlatelolco massacre
to a one-year spell in Castro's Havana, followed then by a posting to Chile
for the election and the bloody fall of Salvador Allende. There he lives a
turbulent romance with a Chilean medical student who is tasked to
convince the various Latino guerrilla groups to join a democratic
movement. A sanguine military coup then has Dunlov desperately
combing the city and morgue for his love, only to be recalled from Chile by
his agency.

FOUR BULLETS FOR SACKO
   Venice, June 4, 2018 –  Soumaila Sacko was a black man with a strong sense
of justice who could not remain silent and watch fellow immigrants treated like
slaves after they were hired out by mafias in Italy’s South, a region where
organized crime rather than the government still run local affairs.
   The man from Mali was indignant that batches of as many as fifty refugee
migrant workers, known colloquially as ‘packets,’ would be sent to landowners to
harvest crops like tomatoes. Each worker is paid a few miserable euros a day by
the land owner while the mafia boss pockets much more per worker in his
‘package.’                
Soumaila Sacko
                                             STEVE BANNON'S MISSION
CRACOW, Poland – This is fertile country for Steve Bannon a nation where the local taxi-driver boasts:
‘During one week here have you seen a single refugee or a black man?”  My answer is ‘no.’
Not a surprise in a Poland where an autocratic government has refused to host refugees, a country
where by law the judiciary must be subordinate to the ruling party, a country where another recent law
classifies anyone a criminal who claims some Poles (allegedly tens of thousands) collaborated with the
Nazis in the extermination of Jews during World War II.

75th VENICE FILM FESTIVAL:
    

      
  An Old Film-Fest Wearing New Clothes   

             Venice, Italy, September 8, 2018 -  
The concrete barricades, the
sniffer dogs and the metal detectors rummaging inside satchels,
handbags and backpacks were further evidence this year the
annual International Venice Film extravaganza, the oldest of its
kind in the world, has suffered some significant changes in
recent times.
